— Xbox (@Xbox) January 18, 2017
This open tournament, taking place this weekend in Mexico City, is open to Gears of War 4 players at any skill level, who wish to participate. Players have already faced off in regional battles to earn the right to play in this weekend’s live event at Mexico City.
The event is a joint collaboration between The Coalition, Xbox Latin America, Gfinity, and Gamelta. Matches will start on Friday, January 20th, 2017, and run through the weekend, with the finals taking place on Sunday.
There does appear to be a slight discrepancy as to the actual amount of the prize pool, since the official event site through Gfinity lists amount as US $75,000. Either way, Gears of War players will compete for not just the money, but also the bragging rights of winning a major regional tournament.
Tickets to the Gears of War Pro Circuit Open Mexico City, at the BlackBerry Auditorium, are still available, if you happen to be in the area. For the rest of us, the event will stream live via http://live.gearsofwar.com/. Spectators attending the event live will have to skip Friday’s matches, or stream them online. Friday will be the Open Bracket matches and the venue will be closed to spectators.
