A brand new season of Fortnite means a lot of things, a new battle pass full of new cosmetics to unlock, a whole bunch of new challenges to complete, and changes to the map and game mechanics. It also means a brand new season of competitive tournaments, including the FNCS tournament to crown the best competitive player/team each season.

In a recent blog post, Epic Games released the competitive calendar so far for Season 4. Some of the tournaments such as Hype Nite aren’t showing as running all season, but they are very likely to but may change or be swapped out for other competitions. Here is the calendar so far for Season 4.

With the current calendar is appears that Hype Nite’s and Cash Cups will be drastically scaled back compared to previous seasons, but more will likely be announced as the season progresses. It also seems that Epic Games is continuing the player themed Cash Cups, with the Paradox, Castor, and Chopper Cash Cups happening throughout September. These Cash Cups are done as a collaborative effort with professional players and content creators and the player decides the format. In previous seasons, there have been Cash Cups from the likes of Benjy Fishy, Mr Savage, and Bugha.
