These games were announced alongside several details about Evo 2022, including that the event will be operating with double the space of previous iterations and is set to feature a large community and casual area for side tournaments. 

With that community space, spectators and players alike can compete in unofficial competitions for other games throughout Evo weekend, though updates on that will come from individual communities, not the Evo team. 

You can learn more about registration and details on the official Evo website.
