The majority of Call of Duty players are in the game for the bombastic story and playing multiplayer withfriends. But Activision has been adding features for the eSports crowd to make competitive play and live broadcasting easier. That culminates with the new Call of Duty World League, a global eSports league with a $3 million prize pool.
The details of the Call of Duty World League are detailed on Activision’s game blog. The league will be split into the Pro Division and Challenge Division when it begins in 2016.
The Pro Division consists of two seasons in North America, Europe, and New Zealand. The Challenge Division allows amateur players to compete in local competitions and official online events.
The best performers in each league can enter the Call of Duty Championships at the end of the 2016 season. The $3 million prize pool will be divided across Activision hosted events through the year.
Now that anyone can get involved with Call of Duty’s new eSports model, will you form a team to get a piece of that enormous prize pool? Let us know in the comments.
