Injustice 2 isn’t out just yet but we already have a good idea of what to expect thanks to the constant stream of new info provided by NetherRealm and Warner Bros. these past few months. What we didn’t know, however, is that the publisher might be looking to make a pretty big push towards the eSports scene with the upcoming fighting game. Or, at the very least, the company wants to make sure that Injustice 2 will be seen as a competitive game right off the bat. To that end, Warner Bros. just announced the Injustice 2 Championship Series, an eSports program that sees players from around the world competing in a series of tournaments for the chance to win big money.
Warner Bros. has teamed up with a number of high-profile companies for the upcoming tournaments and is offering $600,000 in prize money. These companies include big names such as ESL, Twitch, PlayStation 4, GameStop, and the Gamelta eSports Professional League. While Injustice 2 is set to launch on both PS4 and Xbox One, it looks like these tournaments will only be open to PlayStation 4 gamers. The tournaments will take place both online and offline and will run across several months, starting on May 20.
Aspiring Injustice 2 pro gamers from North America, Europe, and Latin America can compete in their local region for a slice of the prize pool in three different tournaments known as GameStop Hometown Heroes, Path to Pro, and Liga Latina. Players who are looking to really make a name for themselves also have a fourth tournament at their disposal. The Injustice 2 Pro Series will be the main tournament and offers by far the largest prize pool. Players from all regions can compete in this tournament, however, those who already signed up for one of the other three tournaments are not allowed to also compete in the Injustice 2 Pro Series. For more information regarding the Championships Series make sure to visit the official website.
Injustice 2 is scheduled to launch on May 16 on PS4 and Xbox One, and later this week on Android and iOS.
