Wednesday August 3,2016 : NEW E-SPORTS ONLINE TOURNEY
Backing by Xbox and Coalition will provide a final guaranteed prize pool of $1 million.
Xbox and The Coalition (formerly Microsoft Vancouver and Black Tusk Studios, now a video game development studio owned by Microsoft) have announced a new eSports tournament titled Gears eSports Pro Circuit for Gears of War 4.
Gears of War players can compete in marquee live open events around the world operated by tournament organizers Major League Gaming (MLG) and Gfinity for a starting $1,000,000 in guaranteed cash prizes, the announcement advises.
Players everywhere can earn “Gears Pro Points” by competing in regional MLG GameBattles online ladders and in daily and weekly tournaments. The Gears Pro Points qualify players for the international circuit open LAN events that take place every 1-2 months from the Gears of War 4 game launch in October 2016 to July 2017.
The Gears Pro Circuit features top teams from North America, Europe, Latin America, and Oceania, who will qualify via Gears Pro Points to be flown around the world to compete against each other at these events. Teams that don’t qualify for the top travel spots will still be able to compete at local events or any international event of their choosing.
There will be large open Gears of War events with a double elimination format playing the new Escalation competitive game mode (5v5) on Gears of War 4.
