With support from ESL Gaming, Ubisoft are launching an official eSports program for Rainbow Six Siege. Starting in March, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League will be an official competitive circuit for the shooter.
ESL is the world’s largest eSports league, and their collaboration with Ubisoft adds one more game to their growing list. The Rainbow Six Pro League is also a collaboration with Xbox, so every major tournament will be played on PC or Xbox One. The competition will start with a PC tournament in Europe, according to ESL.
The premier at Intel Extreme Masters World Championship on the 4th of March will see a total of eight matches from the European PC competition, only days before the competition on both PC and Xbox One takes off in Europe and North America.
In the end, four teams will compete in the Season Finals for a grand prize of $100,000. Registration is open in Europe and North America on the Rainbow Six ESL website.
Anyone can enter the competition, and if your team is strong enough you could get a shot at a huge cash prize. If you’re not into competing, there will be plenty of tournament footage on the Rainbox Six Twitch and YouTube pages.
