Earlier today, Major League Gaming took to Twitter to announce that they will be holding a Call of Duty and Overwatch event called MLG Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada. This will be the first competition in the 2017 Call of Duty World League season. Some of the best teams in the world for both games are looking to compete for their share of over $200k. MLG Vegas is set to take place Dec. 16-18 in the Mandalay Bay Hotel.
We’re happy to announce #MLGVegas!

At the event, ticket holders will be able to participate in GameBattles matches, putting their skill to the test against other players. Also, those who are looking to attend the event can buy a VIP pass, which provides access to a VIP area where fans can meet players, as well as getting early access to the event. Not only this, but the event will be giving attendees access to Virtual Reality experiences, which is always a bonus. END GAME is an aspect to the event which is set to “bring together thousands of eager esports fans under one roof for a huge celebration,” and will include surprise musical performances.
MLG Vegas looks like an extremely exciting event, and if you’re interested in the event, you can find out more about it here.
