Details on the event from the website:
“When the sun sets in the West on July 21, teams of two will hop on the battle bus, grabbing their favorite pickaxe and glide for Red Bull Rise Till Dawn, a dusk to dawn Fortnite Battle Royale duo competition taking place on the 99th floor of Chicago’s famed Willis Tower. Featuring a unique scoring system, the tournament will start as soon as the sun sets at 8:21 PM and continue throughout the night as teams battle to accumulate the most points possible before the sun rises over Lake Michigan at 5:35 AM.”
The duos tournament will allow fans of the game the opportunity to play with Fortnite’s biggest star and other Red Bull athletes in a dusk till dawn tournament. The event is open only to those who are 18 and up, however, it will be streamed live on Ninja’s Twitch channel for anyone’s viewing.
