The Fortnite x MrBeast collab is set to arrive on December 14. Here’s everything you need to know, including how you could win $1 million.

Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson is arguably the most recognizable personality on the internet. The 24-year-old YouTube content creator has over 196 million subscribers across five channels and a global following. MrBeast’s online presence undoubtedly drew Epic Games’ attention, leading to the inevitable Fortnite x MrBeast collaboration. Today, Epic has announced an official release date and what the highly-anticipated crossover would entail.
This collaboration first surfaced at the FNCS Invitational 2022, where the tournament venue offered a MrBeast Burger food stand. One month later, it’s official, Fortnite x MrBeast is a reality. Here’s everything we know about Fortnite x MrBeast, including how Fortnite fans everywhere can compete to win $1 million. 

MrBeast’s Extreme Survival Challenge: how you can win $1 million

If you’re familiar with MrBeast’s content, he frequently hosts large-scale challenges with lots of money up for grabs. The Fortnite collaboration is no different. Unlike any Icon Series crossover before, Fortnite x MrBeast will feature a tournament where the winner will take home $1 million. 
MrBeast’s Extreme Survival Challenge island goes live in Fortnite on December 13 at 9 AM EST. This time would be perfect for players to learn the landscape by avoiding hazards, collecting coins, and surviving extreme challenges. You will earn “Score” with each completed task that will accumulate before time expires in the match.
