EpicGames launched live streaming in picture-in-picture mode right in the game in time for the Fortnite World Cup final! Learn how to watch live streams while playing Fortnite.
How to Watch the Tournament?
Go to the Fortnite lobby to connect to the Fortnite World Cup Pro-Am tournament and final matches. In the upper right corner of the lobby there is a “Watch Now!” Button. By clicking on it, you launch the DarrBurger mini-game while the video is loaded in a separate window. When everything is ready, click on the broadcast window to expand it to full screen.
Of course, you can also follow the tournament on all official Fortnite channels:

How to Follow a Player in Game?
Open the “Competitions” tab in the PC game lobby, Xbox and PS4 versions, and you will see a section on the Fortnite World Cup final. Select the leaderboard to open the list of participants, sorted by results and places. Click on the participant’s name to select the replay you want to watch.
Since this is the first attempt to organize streaming directly in the game, developers want to make a few important notes:
- Broadcast of the Fortnite World Cup final in Picture-in-Picture mode will be enabled by default. You can turn it off in the lobby – it’s enough to close the window once (the game will remember your choice). To hide the broadcast during the match, open the menu and click the “Shut down” button in the upper right of the screen;
- To return the broadcast, select “Enable” at the “Watch During Match” button in the upper right corner of the menu;
- Broadcast will be conducted in English. Unfortunately, in this version of the broadcast, we can not provide a display of subtitles and explanatory inscriptions. If you want to watch the Fortnite World Cup final in another language, visit the Fortnite.com/Watch site;
- By running live during the game, you will hear the sound of the broadcast and the sound of your match;
- Share your viewing experience with us and tell us what needs to be improved by the next version!
See you in the battle bus!
