Players from Japanese and Asian servers cannot participate in the Fortnite PlayStation Cup 2022. The reasoning behind this has not been clarified in the official notice. However, this could be due to licensing issues, which have created problems in the past for players on the continent.


How to participate in the PlayStation Cup 2022

Players can view the tournament from the “Competition” tab in the game and register by following the rules given on the screen. To be eligible as a competitive player in the game, all players must enable two-factor authentication (2FA) on their account. Also, their account must be level 50 or higher.

Only players with PS4 and PS5 are allowed to participate in this tournament. Since this is a single-player tournament, the first part of it will involve players getting as many wins as possible in three hours – each win, as well as match placement, will earn points. These points will be accumulated and only the top 100 players will participate in Day 2.

If players live in the qualifying regions, they can jump into the game and warm up for the remaining two days before the eventful weekend ahead.
