Yesterday, the E3 expo closed with the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am 2018 competition. The event paired 50 "pro" Fortnite players, streamers or entertainers into duos with 50 "amateurs", mainly American celebrities. Epic Games chose the pro's on the basis of their visibility on social media platforms around the world and added amateur celebrities who had shown an interest in Fortnite at some point. The expectations for this event were high, in terms of entertainment value and visibility. Three games after organizers gave $3 million in prize money to be split to the charity of the winners' choices.
