London, United Kingdom
Xbox and The Coalition are proud to present the largest Gears of War eSports program to date with MLG and Gfinity. Join us in London for the first stop in the $1million Gears eSports Pro Circuit.
The best Gears of War players in the world will compete for a starting prize pool of $1,000,000, as Major League Gaming and Gfinity host a series of marquee live open events, held across the globe.
The Gears eSports Pro Circuit will feature more international cross-play and competition than ever before in Gears of War history, as the most talented teams from North America, Europe, Latin America, and Oceania are flown around the world, as they compete against one another.
In order to qualify for the Gears eSports Pro Circuit, players must earn “Gears Pro Points” by competing in regional MLG GameBattles online ladders and in daily and weekly tournaments. Teams who do not qualify for the top travel spots will still be able to compete at local events, as well as any international event of their choosing.
This year’s international circuit will feature large open events, a double elimination format and the brand new, Gears of War 4 competitive game mode, Escalation (5v5).
Our first stop will be London, UK at the Gfinity Arena & Studios.
