Epic Games announced the first four duos on May 15 and 17. This will be held at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

To go along with this quartet of duos, the current teams are:

  • Cloakzy and Dillon Francis

The most notable addition in this batch of duos is Turner “Tfue” Tunney, who is considered to be one of the best players in the game. Although, he will not be representing FaZe Clan due to his ongoing legal battle with the organization.

On June 15, the Summer Block Party will begin with a brand-new Fortnite Creative game, where eight teams of four will fight it out on a custom-designed game, specifically for the event.
