Hello PlayStation fans! Whether you’re someone who likes watching professional gamers compete and has always thought about trying it yourself, or someone who already enjoys playing online, I’m excited to introduce the PS4 Tournaments: Challenger Series.
We’re inviting gamers of all skill levels to play and enjoy competitive online gaming from the comfort of their own homes on their PS4 console. We’re kicking off the PS4 Tournaments: Challenger Series on 6th August with Mortal Kombat 11, followed by FIFA 20, Battlefield V, Warface and other AAA titles coming later this year.
No matter your skill level, you’ll be able to compete against both friends and others in the PlayStation community, with several opportunities to win, and many prizes for those who are victorious.*
- Seasons: PS4 Tournaments: Challenger Series is seasonal, giving you a chance to come back and compete in your favourite games repeatedly. In each season, progress through stages to test your skills with a level playing field, earning prizes for your efforts. See how far you can go – then come back for the next season and see what new prizes you can win!
- Competition Stages: Every tournament season has three stages of competition. Everyone will start in Stage 1, and for Mortal Kombat 11, you must win at least 3 out of 4 matches to advance to Stage 2. This allows more chances to advance than in a single elimination structure. In Stage 2, you will compete at a higher skill level and need to win to move on to Stage 3. In this final stage, you will join the best fighters to compete for the championship title.
- Prizes: As you progress through the competition stages, the value of the prizes will increase. From unique, game-specific dynamic themes to in-game currency and cash prizes, there are plenty of reasons to compete throughout a season.
