The location of the first Gears of War esports event of season two has been revealed.

The upcoming season will kick off with the Gears Pro Circuit Dallas Open, which will take place from Dec. 1 to 3, Gears Esports and The Coalition announced earlier today.

The MLG Dallas Open will feature a starting prize pool of $250,000, and will be held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center (Hall F) in Dallas, Texas.

Season two of the Gears Pro Circuit is set to feature a $2 million prize pool—and the MLG Dallas Open is just the first event in an action-packed Gears esports schedule for 2017-18.

OpTic Gaming ended the first season of the Gears Pro Circuit with three consecutive championships, so fans will be anxious to see if the Green Wall can continue this dominance, or if a new challenger will appear when season two begins in December.
