TORONTO, April 25, 2019 /CNW/ - Luminosity Gaming is proud to announce the additions of Tyler15, Neferux, Gunfly, Devious, frostyZK, Beehive, Prime, CBASS, and Rasta to the Luminosity Fortnite roster, ahead of the upcoming $40,000,000 Fortnite World Cup. They'll join Luminosity Fortnite mainstays SypherPK, CDNThe3rd, Crowdotwave, Aragon, Beesox, and JuniorPK, creating one of the most formidable rosters in the game.
During the Fortnite World Cup, prizes of $1 million will be handed out each week to the top Fortnite players, over the course of the 10 week-long Online Open qualifiers. From there, the top 100 solo players and the top 50 duo teams from around the world will be invited to play in the Fornite World Cup Finals in New York City, from July 26 to July 28, 2019, where a $30 million prize pool will be up for grabs. Each player will be guaranteed at least $50,000, while the Fortnite World Cup Solo Champion will receive a whopping $3 million.
Tyler15, rising star and one of the newest Luminosity's Fortnite recruits, recently officially qualified for the finals.
In just over two years, Fortnite has become one of the most played games on the planet. Since its launch in 2017, millions of players have downloaded and played the games, with a staggering 250 million Fortnite players in total.
Luminosity will compete against players representing Liquid, 100Thieves, FaZe Clan, and others. The franchise has a proven track record of success with Fortnite, having seen players like Ninja and SypherPK thrive under the Luminosity banner.
Luminosity enters the Fortnite World Cup on a hot streak. The Vancouver Titans, managed by Luminosity, and in partnership with Canucks Sports & Entertainment, were recently crowned Stage 1 Overwatch League Champions, after going undefeated through Stage 1 with record of 7-0, and have since amassed a staggering 15-0 overall record. They were also crowned champions of the Call of Duty World League open event in Fort Worth, Texas last month, with a prize pool of $325,000.
This is just the beginning for Luminosity, as the franchise continues its growth mission by investing in new players and streamers in the world's most popular games. Stay connected with Luminosity for more updates:
