Fortnite pro tournament to kick off next weekend

The first ever official pro-Fortnite tournament begins next weekend.

The invite-only competition will run for the next eight weeks.

Organizers say during that time there will be 8-million dollars in prize money.

It's a taste of the "Fortnite World Cup" -- planned to take place sometime next year.

In that case, 100-million dollars worth of prize money will be split among events at different levels of competition around the world.
