Epic Games has announced that MrBeast will be joining Fortnite’s Icon Series. The creator made a brief appearance in a trailer for Fortnite’s newest season, and Epic Games is now confirming that not only will MrBeast be getting his own Fortnite skins, but also a MrBeast-themed in-game competition with a $1 million prize.
MrBeast has astounded millions of fans with his thrilling challenges on YouTube, from “Last To Take Hand Off Jet, Keeps It!” to the yet-to-be-attempted “$500,000 Survive 100 Days In Circle”. As such it comes as no surprise that the in-game event is aptly named an “Extreme Survival Challenge”!
Players will be tested for their highest score capabilities on a custom-created island and the top five high scorers will win $1 million! An additional bonus reward awaits – Every one of those within this group of 100,000 hopefuls shall receive a special in-game umbrella.
Now is your chance to practice before the big challenge on December 17th! Swing by our custom island between 9AM-12PM ET on December 13th with code 7990-6907-8565 and try as many times as you’d like for your top 5 scores. Don’t miss out – the competition runs from 12pm to 3pm ET; make sure you’re ready to take it head-on!
