Love meeting and hanging out with the professionals and trying to get some tips,” says Australian DJ/Producer Alison Wonderland, who will be playing in the first week and in the final victory royale tournament . Alison’s brand new single and music video, “Bad Things,” is out today.
“I’m excited to try out these new Custom maps! They’re going to be awesome; the map builders have been working super hard to create unique worlds for us. It’s always fun to meet new people in the game I love.” says 2019 Twitch Rivals Champion and MVP, Tina ‘TINARAES’ Perez, part of Gen.G’s #TeamBumble Fortnite team.

Each of the maps are named after SAMSUNG device colors: Mystic Bronze Map (Sept. 26), Mystic White Map (Sept. 30) and Mystic Black Map (Oct. 4), with the final Victory Royale map to be revealed on Oct. 9.
“We are thrilled once again to partner with SAMSUNG to provide Fortnite fans new maps to compete for bragging rights and prizes,” said Martin Kim with Gen.G. “We want to deliver an experience that challenges our fans, and at the same time, provide great entertainment with our talent, pros and players. It’s going to be a lot of fun watching how people attack our unique maps to see who is the last person standing.”
