There may be a Fallout 76 stress test for PC ahead of the beta

With the Fallout 76 beta launching on PC on October 30, we really don't have all that long to wait until we can get our hands Bethesda's online Fallout game. It still feels like a long time, though, especially when the beta will be coming to Xbox One a week earlier. However, there's the possibility of a stress test for PC ahead of the beta's release date of October 30.

Fortnite is getting tournaments in next update

Epic has announced that it's introducing Tournaments to Fortnite's Battle Royale mode as part of the game's imminent 6.10 update. Tournaments will be open to everyone, and are described as a chance for players to "compete directly alongside the pros for prizes and glory".

Each tournament session will last several hours, with players competing to earn the most points possible - either by eliminating others during a match or through high placements. If players can reach a tournament's target score, they'll receive a special pin. "In the future," says Epic, "earning a pin may advance you to the next round of a tournament or qualify you to win prizes."

Epic has so far announced six tournaments for the days and weeks following update 6.10's arrival. These will run from October 16th to November 1st, with tournaments lasting between two and five days, and focussed on different play modes. The Alpha Tournament and Salty Springs Cup are centred on Solo play, for instance, while the Beta Tournament and Tomato Temple Cup are designed for Duo play. Lastly, the Friday Night Fortnite is intended for Squads. Full dates can be found on Epic's announcement page.
