Epic Games recently announced that Fortnite Generations Cup would be scheduled on December 18th, 2020, exclusively for PlayStation users.

The official blog also stated that one lucky winner from each region would be taking home a brand new PlayStation 5 from the Fortnite Generations Cup. This is quite an exciting reward from Epic Games during the festive season.

The Fortnite Generations Cup is going to be a solo tournament exclusively for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players. Thus, players have to bring their best strategies to take the coveted PlayStation 5 home.

Epic Games announces the Fortnite Generations Cup for PlayStation users

The official description mentions that players must have the 2-Factor authentication enabled. Simultaneously, players should have an account level of 30 to participate in the Fortnite Generations Cup. 

Along with this, Epic Games provided a comprehensive set of rules for the tournament. They have also announced that players will win an exclusive "Indigo Kuno" cosmetic after taking part in the tournament.

However, the highlight of the Fortnite Generations Cup is the PlayStation 5 reward for each region. Epic Games have teamed up with Sony to endorse the next-generational console as they have done before with the Kratos outfit. 

Epic Games revealed earlier that "120 FPS" setting mode is added to Fortnite for both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Thus, it is logical to expect an exclusive Xbox tournament coming to the Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. 

The Fortnite Generations Cup will be an exciting event before Winterfest 2020 is finally announced. Players of all skill levels are encouraged to join the tournament with their PS4 or PS5.
