Calling all Fortnite fans as live gaming returns with Dubai EStars

Fortnite fans have plenty to look forward to thanks to the Dubai Estars competition, the first live gaming festival since the pandemic.

And Fortnite will be taking centre stage for the two-week gaming festival. In total, there will be over 200 XBox and Playstations hooked up to Fornite, with live commentary on all the sessions. Bring it on!

As well as battling to get on the leaderboard during your session, there are a huge range of prizes up for grabs for Fortnite battlers.

The main winner will walk away with a Gold Plated PS5, while second place will be a limited-edition Nintendo Switch and third place a VIP Hotel experience. Alongside that, there will be dozens of daily prizes including Turtle Beach Headsets, Xbox and PS5, hotel giveaways as well as lots of swag to the best players, the best dancers and those that entertain us!

Any and all entrants are welcome, but all players must be over 12 years old.

Fortnite was released in 2017 and quickly became one of the most-played games in history, with 350 million registered users. And you can claim bragging rights – and a very cool gold-plated PS5 – by winning the Dubai EStars competition.

While Fortnite is the main attraction at Dubai EStars, there are also FIFA 21 and Rocket League competitions in the Hang Our arena.

Covid-19 protocols 

Rest assured that Dubai EStars will follow all UAE Covid-19 protocols and also feature twice-daily cleaning and sanitisation breaks. Gamers must wear masks at all times, follow the one-way signs and observe the 4m social distancing guidelines.


General tickets will be on sale via from February 22. Tickets are priced at AED250 and AED350 for VIP. 

The action all takes place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from March 26 until April 10.
