Activision has announced Call of Duty’s World Series of Warzone tournament is returning, and while the battle royale’s most notable competitors will be attending, anyone can sign up to fight for their share of the $600,000 total prize pool.
This year’s World Series of Warzone will be played on Warzone‘s Caldera map, and the prize pool is up from last year’s $400,000 to $600,000, which is money split between the North American and European regional finals.
This World Series of Warzone tournament is played in trios, and any team can sign up and compete in the in-game open qualifier on August 12 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET. During this time, the “WSOW BR Trios” playlist will go live in Warzone, and the qualifier will run until August 15 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET. In order to be eligible, teams must register on the GameBattles website before the playlist ends to earn points based on their top 10 match performances. Points are earned based on both kills and final placement. There will even be a leaderboard to allow players to see where they stack up in the competition.
