The Fortnite Galaxy Cup tournament begins July 25

Epic has confirmed that the Fortnite Galaxy Cup, which is exclusive to Android players, will take place between July 25-26. Compete and you can earn exclusive rewards, including the Galaxy Scout Outfit and Star Scout Wrap, though you will need a compatible Android device to participate.

Everybody who plays Fortnite can appreciate free loot, but if there is one thing that makes these particular items irresistible, it’s earning them from a tournament. A maximum of 25,000 players will be eligible to receive the Galaxy Scout Outfit from participating. If you are worried that you will miss out on the outfit, you will have a chance to purchase the skin from the store at a later date.

The two-day event will see players fight against each other to earn “Hype” points. The points are awarded based on where you finish out of 100 players, and how many eliminations you get in your game. You will also earn one Hype point for any game you play in. The players who collect the most hype points in the two-day event period will unlock the new outfit.
