Epic Games

Epic Games has revealed the first event in Fortnite‘s Marvel Knockout Super Series. Fans of the Man Without Fear, rejoice: it’s the Daredevil Cup.

The cup kicks off tomorrow (Wednesday, October 14). The top teams in each region will earn bragging rights. That’s right: bragging rights!

Oh, and they will also gain early access to the Daredevil outfit before its official Item Shop release.

Marvel Knockout Super Series

And in case you’re wondering exactly what the Marvel Knockout Super Series is, here’s the word straight from the official Fortnite blog:

Marvel Knockout is a spin on Operation: Knockout that sees your team utilize super-powers to be the best team on the tournament bracket. Battle alongside your team against foes in a 4-round knockout fight! Each round your team will be given a different set of powers to battle opponents with mirrored abilities!

The series consists of four competitive cups, building up to a final tournament with a prize pool of US$1 million. That is scheduled to take place on November 21. “And as an added bonus,” Epic informs us, “any player who participates in all four of the cups will receive the exclusive Nexus War Glider.” Which is surely fair compensation for those who don’t win a million bucks. 

I have done a lot of different things over the course of my life and professional career. I have interviewed Oscar and Grammy winners and written cover stories for glossy newsstand magazines. I have played guitar in a rock band on national TV and run an independent music label for which I wrote all of the PR and marketing materials. In my spare time, I sweated out a novel about a world where raccoons are kings and dragons are real.
