Epic Games recently announced the Fortnite Community Battle which offers players the chance to compete against each other for the purpose of earning free V-Bucks. Here’s everything you need to know before you jump into battle.
As Fortnite’s Season 3 draws to a close, Epic Games has decided to offer their community a new kind of challenge. But this time, they have decided to offer V-Bucks prizes that players can win for free by taking up certain in-game challenges.
Some challenges are as simple as playing Fortnite for an hour or eliminating three people in any game mode, but the novelty lies in the ranking format which naturally gives greater rewards to those at the top.
But first, in order to begin your ascent in the Community Battle, you will first need to go through the registration process, and here’s how.

Registration for this event is quick and is done on the Epic Games community page where players must follow four steps:

Dates of the Fortnite Community Battle
This competition will take place from 19 August at 10 am until 23 August at 8 pm.
Despite the event’s small print indicating that only residents of Germany, Austria or Switzerland aged 13 or older can participate, many users from Canada, the United States and other regions outside of these settings have indicated that they can still register.
This could mean that all players can participate in the event, but when it comes to claiming rewards, this could be limited to defined regions.
