Fortnite has become quite huge over the past year and Microsoft has taken notice. The firm has held events online in the past and is now bringing the experience to its retail spaces. Starting today, Fortnite Fridays will take place at your local Microsoft Store.
The event will be part of the ASUS ROG Arena and will start at 5:30p, lasting until 9pm local time. Those that participate will have the chance to take home 2,500 V-Bucks in Fortnite: Battle Royale. V-Bucks are an in-game currency that can be spent on customizations and items. If you are in attendance, you will be playing on ASUS ROG PCs, and if a keyboard and mouse isn't your thing, you can ask for a controller, where Microsoft will supply you with a Xbox Wireless Controller.
As far as the full schedule for the event, you can find it below:
