ESL and 2K Games will be partnering together to host a $100,000 Evolve tournament for Xbox One this coming June. Online qualifying rounds will begin on April 26th in the US and Europe.
Four weeks of online competition will lead to a travel-expenses-paid-for offline tournament at both the ESL Cologne studios and ESL Burbank studios, respectively, from which the top two will advance to the Grand Finals in Los Angeles on the week of June 15th.
Tourney participants must have a legal copy of Evolve, a team of five players — each with an active Xbox Live Gold membership account in good standing — and be registered with an account on the ESL website.
For those of us not participating, the full tournament will be broadcast live on Twitch TV here.
