Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am: How and when to watch the star-studded tournament

null

It's always nice to see people blasting guns and demolishing buildings in the name of charity. Epic Games' Fortnite is currently dominating the gaming world, and even though it's a known quantity, it'll surely have a big presence as one of the leading E3 2018 games. Rumor has it that we'll see Fortnite on Switch when a port debuts during the show - but Epic is also hosting the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am, a duo-team tournament that'll put a combined $3 million in prize money directly towards the charities of the winning team's choice.  

Each of the 50 teams competing in the Pro-Am consist of a pro player and/or famous streamer - folks like Ninja, TSM's Myth, and Pokimane - paired up with celebrities from the realm of sports, music, and entertainment. Sadly, we won't be seeing another Ninja/Drake team-up, but this is surely the next best thing. Here are all the details on when and where to watch the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am and witness the mayhem unfold. 

Where can I watch the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am?  

The tournament will take place on none other than Fortnite's official stream, embedded above. If the stream starts lagging due to the bazillion viewers it's sure to accrue, you can seek out an alternative stream on the Fortnite YouTube, Fortnite Facebook, or Fortnite Mixer pages. 

When is the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am?  

The Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am kicks off on Tuesday, June 12 at 3:30pm Pacific / 6:30 pm Eastern / 11:30 pm BST. Nintendo fans, take note: this could create a conflict with the scheduled Splatoon 2 and Smash Bros. for Switch tournaments set to start earlier that afternoon. But there's always Twitch archives if you miss anything on either stream!
