Fortnite: $34.5K DreamHack Cash Cup Extra – Everything You Need To Know

Fortnite: $34.5K DreamHack Cash Cup Extra – Everything You Need To Know

DreamHack is back in the competitive Fortnite scene after a three-month hiatus. ESTNN breaks down the Cash Cup Extra tournament.

The Sweden-based production company known as DreamHack holds a healthy relationship with the competitive Fortnite community. They produced last year’s Online Open tournament series, where players in NA East, NA West and Europe had an opportunity to make a name for themselves. Several outstanding players profited from the $1.75M USD DreamHack Online Open prize pool, and some even won multiple iterations of the competition.

January marked the end of DreamHack’s popular tournament series, much to Fortnite players’ dismay everywhere. When all hope seemed lost, DreamHack resurfaced on April Fools’ Day to reveal their highly anticipated return to Fortnite with the Cash Cup Extra competition.

What is Cash Cup Extra Presented by DreamHack?

This new DreamHack tournament is open to NA East and European trios. Those teams that want to qualify need to perform well in Fortnite’s Trio Cash Cups on April 7 and April 15. The top 132 NA East and European from both cups will automatically secure a Cash Cup Extra spot. Based on DreamHack’s words, it seems that their newest competition could be cross-regional.
