Fortnite’s Summer Skirmish competitive series has almost come to an end, and to celebrate, Epic Games is heading to PAX West for a massive blowout event.

Across all four days of PAX West 2018, Epic will be hosting a huge final tournament for Summer Skirmish, and this time it’s open to everyone — as long as you’re at PAX. Each day will begin with a series of three qualifiers, and each qualifier will run for two matches. The players who compete will be the first who register on each day. The top 32 players from each qualifier will move on to the nightly qualifier, where they will once again face off. The top 33 players from each nightly qualifier will advance to the Grand Finals on Monday, where they will have their chance to compete for a share of the $1.5 million prize pool.

While only players who are actually in attendance at PAX West will have the opportunity to compete, everyone else can watch the tournament on the official Fortnite Twitch channel.
