The Fortnite craze landed in Glasgow this past weekend and the game’s Scottish fans turned out in huge numbers to take part. The EStars with Fortnite tournament, held at Celtic Park from Friday to Sunday, gave gamers of all ages the chance to compete against others and win prizes.
Playing on either PlayStation or Xbox, competitors had an hour to secure as many victories as possible, with the number of kills per victory being a factor as well. The top nine players from across the weekend at Celtic Park would go on to the grand final, held at Stamford Bridge in London later this year, with those in the final competing to win the ultimate prize of £25,000.
As well as the tournament, competitors could take part in dance competitions alongside their favourite characters and have the chance to win great prizes. Anticipation was high throughout the day as over 200 competitors played game after game, with shouts of joy and fist-pumping from those who were successful. There was a real sense of excitement that only a game like Fortnite can bring, and with 10 more stops on the EStars tour, gamers up and down the country are in for a treat.
