Last Updated on: 27th June 2022, 03:34 pm

Fortnite’s first LAN event after almost three years has been announced, and with a whopping $1 million prize pool, fans have every reason to get excited.

The Covid-19 pandemic has undoubtedly affected the in-person gaming scene. For almost three years, Fortnite has been unable to host an in-person event due to strict protocols concerning health.

However, as things are slowly getting back to normal, in-person tournaments such as the FNCS Invitational will also be back soon. In fact, game developer and publisher Epic Games has already announced the upcoming FNCS Invitational this year.

Epic Games announced that the in-person FNCS Invitational 2022 will be held on November 12 and 13 in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. However, while this is a highly anticipated comeback, the developer and publisher also emphasized the importance of their players’ health and safety. Therefore, should there be any changes to the current protocols, there would be a change of plans, too.
