Fortnite Fall Skirmish detailed, 78.3 million players served in August

That's a lot of Fortnite players.


Fortnite fans have plenty to look forward to. What with Season 6 coming up soon and Epic Games celebrating the game's biggest month to date with 78.3 million players in August, the game shows no signs of slowing down. The next big event is undoubtedly the Fall Skirmish, which is bringing plenty of different play formats, new broadcast tools, and a ton of other cool stuff to the game that you won't want to miss out on.

First off, Epic Games is bringing holdovers from the Summer Skirmish series back with specific formats that begin with Week 1 this Friday at 12:00 PM ET and its Group 1 play, then 4:00 PM ET with Group 2 play. There will also be weekly trials for members of various Clubs so they can compete to earn more points for each Club. Fall Skirmish will continue to mix up the formats each week for new and changing competitions.

You can choose from four Clubs: the Fort Knights, Lucky Llamas, Dusty Dogs, Rift Raiders, and Bush bandits, each with their own official club banners. The clubs have over 500 Fortnite community creators and competitions with each player representing the Clubs for the duration of the Fall Skirmish's 6-week duration.

There's lots more details to come, all of which you can find here via the official Fortnite announcement page.
