It's about time Gears of War got some more love from tournament organizers. It's now been confirmed that a new Gears of War 4 league is on its way.
The upcoming Gears of War 4 league will feature a $25,000 prize pool and live LAN finals in Huntington Beach, California. The new Gears of War 4 League was announced by International Gaming League and it will be open to existing pro teams and amateur players.
The new Gears of War 4 League from IGL will not be a part of the Gears Pro Circuit, but it's still quickly become an event on everybody's radar.
The League will kick off with 4 open qualifiers, all of which will take place on March 18. After that, three more open qualifiers will he held on March 25, April 8 and April 15. Four of the best teams from each qualifier will move to ladder play. The ladder will run for a month, after which the twelve teams at the top of the ladder will be taken into league play.
No invitations have been sent out for the Gears of War 4 League from IGL, so it'll be an open event up for grabs by any potential rising talent. Players will need to visit the proIGL website to sign their team up for the open qualifiers to take part.
With this newly announced $25,000 event and the Gears Pro circuit, we potentially have a lot of pro Gears of War 4 events on our plate this year.
