DreamHack Winter Featuring Fortnite And DreamHack Anaheim Featuring Fortnite Details
Both tournaments have an incredible $250,000 prize pool up for grabs with guaranteed participation for anyone with a BYOC ticket.
The two community tournaments will be historical as the DreamHack Winter edition will be the biggest Fortnite tournament ever to be held in the Nordics. DreamHack Anaheim’s tournament will claim the spot as the largest community/BYOC tournament ever held at a DreamHack U.S. festival.
“We are extremely happy to be able to bring this huge tournament to our festivals,” said DreamHack Co-CEO Marcus Lindmark. “It really gives the core of the DreamHack festivals, the visitors, a chance to play for the big money. With the support of Epic Games, we’re now writing DreamHack history by setting up the biggest community tournaments to date, which couldn’t be more perfect as we celebrate 25 years of DreamHack.”
DreamHack Winter 2019 takes place from Nov. 29-Dec. 1 An additional day of the LAN/BYOC has been added and will begin one day in advance on November 28, offering 80 hours of BYOC activity — the longest DreamHack LAN ever. DreamHack Winter featuring Fortnite will begin on Friday, Nov. 29, and will be available for all BYOC ticket holders who want to participate.
As DreamHack Winter closes out 2019, the first-ever DreamHack festival on the U.S. west coast will launch 2020 with DreamHack Anaheim, Feb. 21-23.
