modern-warfare-invitational-gfinityExciting news for OG Call of Duty fans. Gfinity has announced a $25,000 Modern Warfare Remastered invitational event.

The new tournament has been sponsored by HP Omen, which is a gaming laptop brand. As a result, the tournament will be played on PCs. Teams will have the option to use controllers or a mouse and keyboard. This may be a surprise to some, especially considering the accuracy gap between traditional controllers and a mouse.

The teams to take place in the event have yet to be announced, but we expect four picks from some of the best teams in the world. Whilst a $25,000 prize pool isn't massive, this being the first major cash tournament for Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered, makes it an important one to attend.

Invitational events will feature a number of teams that the event organizers have invited themselves. These events are often designed to gauge viewer interest, so the highest skilled teams are often invited to ensure great gameplay is showcased. If you'd like to see future Modern Warfare Remastered events, including cups that you and your own team could take part in, make sure to tune into the Gfinity invitational when it launches.
