The Fortnite DreamHack Open is finally back after a month. This tournament is open to all players, and almost everyone can compete in this Open to battle it out for the $200,000 top prize.

The Fortnite DreamHack Open 2021 is available to players of NA-East and Europe for the time being and will hopefully be available to players from other regions soon.


How to participate in the Fortnite DreamHack Open 2021

Participating in the Fortnite DreamHack Open is very easy. Players need to log into Fortnite and head to the "Compete" tab from their profiles. Once there, they need to navigate their way to the DreamHack Open card to participate.

The Fortnite DreamHack Open is in Duos format. This means the tournament will only allow teams of two. Around 500 teams will qualify for the semi finals and from there, only 50 teams will make it to the finals, who will then battle it out for the $200,000 grand prize.

According to their post on Twitter, the Fortnite DreamHack Open heats for both NA-East and Europe begin today. The NA-East Semis take place tomorrow, along with the second leg of the European open.

The NA-East finals take place on May 19th, with the EU finals set to take place on May 20th. At the time of writing this article, the EU heats have already begun, while the NA-East heats begin in approximately 7 hours.
