As its name suggests, the Secret Skirmish event will likely reveal the location where it’s being held and who’s competing the day of the event in order to surprise viewers. Of course, we could also see additional information released over the next few weeks to encourage fans to tune in.

Right now, Epic has indicated that Secret Skirmish competitors will be comprised of players they’ve personally invited, including top players from previous Open Fortnite competitions. As with previous Fortnite events, participating Secret Skirmish competitors will have their Fortnite skills to the test for a chance to take home a piece of the $500,000 prize pool.

There will likely be a series of event stages with the “Grand Finals” scheduled for the last day of the event, February 15. Additionally, one of the more cryptic things teased by the announcement is the exploration of “additional operations during the two days of competition,” though it’s unclear what Epic means by this statement.

If you’re curious to find out what the Secret Skirmish is all about, stay tuned to Fortnite social media accounts like Twitter.
