Activision recently revealed that its hit mobile game, Call of Duty: Mobile, will be introducing an eSports tournaments for its players.
The tournament is in collaboration with Sony Mobile and is dubbed the Call of Duty: Mobile World Championship 2020 Tournament. It’s quite a mouthful.
The tournament will be held from April 30 2020 until May 24 2020. Players who want to participate will have to be ranked veteran or higher.
Only players must also rank up in Multiplayer only, not Battle Royale, to take part in the tournament.
Once players sign up for the tournament, they will have to play ten ranked matches and earn 80 tournament points to move onto Stage 2.
Players will not be able to use either controllers and mouse and keyboards unless the officials grant an exception. Players will most certainly not be allowed to run the game on a desktop simulator, either.
This allows for a full-on exclusive touchscreen-based tournament experience. The game does, after all, have the label Mobile in its name, so it makes sense.
Not many details have been shared regarding the $1 million prize pool. Some vague details about Stage 2 mention players will have to form a team with one another and continue playing online matches.
More details about the prize pool and Stage 2 of the tournament will be updated on its website, likely after Stage 1 ends.
