Fortnite fans and competitive gaming enthusiasts have an all-new event to look forward to, as OpTic Gaming and NGAGE Esports have gotten together to announce the upcoming OpTic Arena Battle Royale Event. Set to take place later this year at A-Kon 2018, the event will present an open opportunity for players to come test their Fortnite prowess at the Fort Worth Convention Center this spring.

Set to run between June 8 and June 10, the OpTic Arena Battle Royale is but one event hosted at the upcoming A-Kon 2018 anime convention. Players who enter the 60-player competition will have a chance to win the grand prize Golden Ticket VIP experience as well as a host of various "Fortnite swag" for those who place highly enough during the competition.
