E3 2018: Watch The Fortnite Pro-Am Celebrity Tournament Livestream Right Here
Watch all the Battle Royale action right here.
As a game that receives updates constantly, and seemingly as often as possible, Fortnite is not a game that lends itself to a traditional showing at E3. Despite that, Epic is promoting the game at E3 2018 in a variety of ways--first by confirming the rumored Switch version and now by hosting a Pro-Am. You can watch the livestream right here in the video embed below.
The Pro-Am features 100 total players--the total for a Battle Royale match--50 of which are celebrities, and 50 of which are regular players. These are divided into teams of two that will compete for the coveted Victory Royale.
Among the participants are actor Joel McHale, NBA player Paul George, WWE wrestler Xavier Woods, and a number of others on the celebrity side, while the "gamer" side feature well-known streamer Ninja. You can see the full list of competitors on Fortnite's website.
The action began at 3:30 PM PT / 6:30 PM ET / 11:30 PM BST today, June 12. You can watch the action above, and if you're in Los Angeles for E3, catch a glimpse of the inflatable battle bus that's also flying around the city.
If you've got a Nintendo Switch, you can download Fortnite: Battle Royale now for free and begin playing. It features cross-play with all other platforms except for PS4, so even if you're someone on one of those systems, you can now party up and play with your Switch friends. From what we've played, it runs quite well on the hybrid console.
