NRG Unveils $15K Fortnite Winter Games Competition

The North American esports organization NRG revealed details about the first-ever Fortnite Winter Games event, which is a skill challenge open to North American and European gamers. Participants will test all aspects of their gameplay for a share of the $15,000 prize pool.

The Winter Games is not a standard Fortnite tournament. You don’t necessarily need to be a Zone Wars master or Arena Mode grinder to succeed. The tournament features three skill tests crucial to success in Fortnite: aim, building, and movement.

NRG enlisted the help of talented map creators to construct branded challenge courses that players will need to conquer. Each Creative Map requires sharp skills and precision since only a handful of participants can advance to the Grand Finals.

Here are the map codes for NRG’s personal Castle Hub, where you can access all three challenge courses below and direct codes for the maps themselves:

  • NRG Castle Hub: 5478-0518-2490
  • Aim Challenge: 3748-1836-8937
  • Speedrun Challenge: 6176-2232-8590
  • Build/Edit Challenge: 6870-9852-7426

Those looking to compete in the Winter Games need to be residents of North America or Europe. If you fit that description, jump right into the Creative Maps listed above and work on achieving a solid time for each. Once done, head over to NRG’s website, where you can fill out a form to submit your time. It’s worth noting that you can enter more than once.

You can check the leaderboard also on NRG’s website to see how your times stack up against other players. Entrants that meet the three thresholds per challenge below will automatically qualify for the Grand Finals:

  • Fastest time from Europe
  • Fastest time from North America
  • Second-fastest time regardless of the region
