What Is DreamHack Fortnite?

DreamHack is one of the world’s premier esports tournaments, with the organization hosting many LAN events.

However, these have all been moved online over the last year or so, with the company announcing that it will be holding a tournament each month throughout 2021.

The DreamHack Fortnite tournaments are open to all players to compete in, with the top teams going on to compete in the finals for their share of $200,000 each month.

DreamHack Open is typically in the Duos format, while Cash Cup Extra is usually a Trios tournament, with the top teams from an Epic Games held Cash Cup tournament being invited to further compete for another prize pool.
