The final two stages of the DreamHack Open Fortnite tournament took place over the weekend, with NA-East and European players competing for their share of the $250,000 prize pool. DreamHack is helping Fortnite fans through the quarantine by ensuring that there’s no shortage of esports to watch – hosting a monthly tournament for each of the three major regions.
After this month wrapped up, we’re onto September. Here’s a look at the final standing for each of the two regions that competed this past weekend.
DreamHack Fortnite NA-East results
The NA-East marathon of DreamHack Fortnite ended on August 21 with OA Coop taking first place by only two points over Camadon. The two were followed by a duo of Sentinels players, Aspect and Bugha. The former World Cup solos champ continues to prove that he’s one of the most consistent solo players in Fortnite with back-to-back high placements in the FNCS and DreamHack Open.
Some other noteworthy finishes include Assault at 9, Klass at 11, Edgey at 20, Jamper at 29, Slackes at 60, Avery at 62, Stretch at 82, and Saf at 95 after playing only three games.
DreamHack Fortnite EU results
The EU region finished their final stage of the DreamHack Open tournament on August 23, with K1nzell taking home first place. Unlike the winner of NA, K1nzell had a substantial lead on RLluka in second place – beating him by over 30 points.
After RLluka was JannisZ in third, followed by Jaspaay in fourth. Other notable finishes include Mongraal at 16, Benjyfishy at 33, and Crr at 53.
DreamHack is hosting monthly tournaments for EU, NA-East, and NA-West. Typically, the monthly competitions begin with NA-West, which finished earlier in August. We’re only a few weeks away from the September DreamHack Open tournament – which looks to be the first official tournament in Fortnite Season 4.

Will Thor and Galactus return Fortnite players to the Chapter 1 map at the end of Season 4.

Fortnite Season 4 is set to release Thursday, August 24. Epic have confirmed that the next season will feature a strong Marvel theme, which seems to mirror the theme of Chapter 1 Season 4 – only with licensed superheroes.
The initial impression of many fans was that Epic abandoned the plot of Fortnite in favor of a marketing campaign. This narrative made it all the way to Epic Games Creative Director, Donald Mustard. He assured fans that this wasn’t the case and that the Marvel crossover would heavily tie into the Fortnite lore.
Epic and Marvel appear to be collaborating on a comic book that will usher-in Season 4. At the time of writing, we know that Galactus is heading to the Fortnite map with the intention of devouring the world. Thor has arrived in time to warn the inhabitants, but he’s losing his memory in the process.
From what we heard in the Visitor Recordings, this seems to be a symptom of life on the BR island. “When I hear this again, will it help me remember? Or will I be just as muted as the others?”
Before the most recent pages released, YouTuber and Twitch streamer Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan released a theory video. In the video, he proposes the idea that Fortnite Season 4 will be the final – or second-to-last – season of Chapter 2. These recent developments only add credibility to this theory.
The idea behind this theory is clear once you read through the comic book pages in Fortnite. Galactus is coming to devour the world. Thor doesn’t seem to be here to save the world, but rather to warn the inhabitants. All signs point to Thor evacuating the island in time for Galactus to consume the Chapter 2 map.
The timing of this being the end of Chapter 2 checks out as well. We’ve only had four seasons, but the first two seasons were nearly twice as long as normal Fortnite seasons. In essence, it’s as if we’ve been through five seasons rather than three, as Sypher states in his video. The rumored end date for Season 4 also puts it about a year from the end of Chapter 1.
Will we transport to an entirely new map? Will Thor send us back to the Chapter 1 map? We have no idea. Right now, though, this seems like the most realistic theory for the end of Fortnite Season 4 – that it will be the last season of Chapter 2.
Most fans hope that we’ll return to the old map at some point, and the presence of these massive, cosmic Marvel characters makes this reality seem to be coming sooner rather than later. We’ll have to wait a couple of months before finding out, of course.
Thor dropped his hammer in the latest Fortnite Season 4 teaser. Here’s where it’s located on the map.

We’re officially into the week of the Fortnite Season 4 release. It’s set to hit all platforms (apart from iOS devices) this Thursday, August 27. Naturally, that means that the teasers are heating up.
The Season 4 teasers are a bit different than past seasons. Epic are still releasing their daily teasers – so far, spelling N-E-X – but Marvel Comics is getting in the mix as well. It’s no secret that Season 4 is going to have a Marvel theme, and both giants are working together to generate hype.
The in-game Fortnite comics are telling a story. So far, Thor has made it to the BR island in an attempt to warn players of their impending doom. Galactus is coming and will consume the world with all of its inhabitants.
The only problem is that Thor is losing his memory. He’s trying to warn the inhabitants, but he can’t seem to remember why. On top of that, Thor seems incredibly frustrated by the fact that no one is talking to him. He even gave poor old Peely a knuckle sandwich before forgetting why he came in the first place.
This is an incredibly interesting twist, as it ties into what the Visitor said back in Season X. “When I hear this again, will it help me remember? Or will I be just as muted as the others?”
The effects of these events can be seen in-game. Thor’s hammer has landed outside of Salty Springs. You can visit it, now. Most players who come here seem to be friendly. We met two players who offered us shields while visiting the crater in Solos.
As you might expect, the hammer is indestructible. We predict that it will be lifted when Season 4 begins and Thor becomes a playable character.
So, now we have a rift developing over the island and Thor’s Hammer as a small POI outside of Salty Springs. Tomorrow, we’ll get another teaser that will likely have a small in-game effect.
The plotline is developing, slowly, but it’s already quite interesting. It’s clear that Epic haven’t abandoned the Fortnite story in favor of a marketing campaign, as some players claim. Instead, they’re weaving their world into an even bigger universe; something that all Fortnite lore fanatics should appreciate.

The first teaser for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is here, adding to the hype for the upcoming Marvel theme, and there’s even a sneaky addition in-game too.
The teaser showed off the logo we’ve already seen, alongside a comic version of Thor.
More interesting though, was the caption on Fortnite’s post: “The Herald has found The Island. The prelude to War has begun. Experience Part 1 in-game now…”
The ‘Herald’ presumably refers to Thor himself, who, as well as the god, is also known as the “Herald of Thunder’ in the Marvel universe.
As for the War, it could refer to any number of battles and wars in both Marvel and myths.
Or, possibly, it refers to Epic’s real-life (legal) war against Apple and Google – after all, Epic’s Donald Mustard has intimated that “it’s all connected.”
As for the in-game reference, players quickly found that a new page of the comic book in game had been revealed.
Again, this tells a story about Thor, which you can read in the video shared by ShiinaBR.
However, this might not be the only teaser in the game. FNBRHQ shared the first look at a new rift that has been spotted in the sky above the island.
Again, this appears related to the superhero theme – possibly the incoming herald of thunder himself, Thor.
We’ll keep you updated on all the Fortnite Season 4 teasers as they’re released.
