In collaboration with DreamHack, players can qualify for the $2 million Gamers8 LAN by performing well at three upcoming DreamHack events. There's a lot to break down, so let's do it.

Here’s everything you need to know about this summer’s $2 million Gamers8 Fortnite Zero Build LAN tournament.

Gamers8 Fortnite Zero Build tournament details

This tournament confirmation follows the success of last year’s Gamers8 tournament, which hosted two separate competitions; one for Zero Build and another for traditional Battle Royale mode. Unlike the last Gamers8 event, the only game mode is Zero Build and the qualification path is much clearer. Players must travel to one of three DreamHack competitions to secure their spot.

The top ten duos from DreamHack San Diego, DreamHack Dallas, and DreamHack Summer in Sweden will earn the right to compete at the Gamers8 Fortnite Finals in Saudi Arabia. It’s unclear how Gamers8 plans to fill out the remaining spots. However, some well-known Fortnite players may receive an invitation to compete.
