As Season 2 in Battlerite soon falls upon us, so does our first Official Tournament!
Stunlock Studios and Twitch are proud to announce the ‘Enter the Arena’ Battlerite tournament presented by Beyond the Summit later this month. This kicks off the competitive scene for Battlerite in 2017 with a mix of invited teams and open qualifiers for a showdown of the best-of-the-best in both Europe and North America on two consecutive action-packed days, with a prize pool of $10,000.
We at Stunlock Studios are excited to kick off Season 2 with a bang together with the awesome people over at Beyond the Summit and Twitch. In just a week the open qualifiers begin, where both European and North American players can earn their place to duke it out with pre-invited teams in the two-day tournament finals presented by Beyond the Summit from their studio in the L.A.
If you’re tuning in to Battlerite for the first time you’ll get the gist of it in a heartbeat, with similarities to fighting games, and World of Warcraft arena. It’s a fast-paced, visually dynamic brawlfest with an emphasis on skill and precision, favoring ‘WASD’ character movement and skillshots over ‘click-to-move’ and targeted abilities. As a first encounter with Battlerite for many viewers, we’re hoping to not only offer an entertaining broadcast, but to also introduce the game’s intricacies to fresh audiences, newer players as well as esports fans. We’re looking forward to the full free-to-play release and a series of competitive events this year.
