The tournament will only feature the five-vs-five Team Deathmatch mode with each game lasting 10 minutes or until one squad gets 100 kills. There will be an online and offline round and the schedule will be announced on Oct. 31.

The top eight teams from the online round will make their way to the Garena Esports Studio in Thailand to play in the offline competition. The prize pool will be distributed among the top four teams, with the winner receiving about $3,300. The runners-up will pocket about $1,600 while the third and fourth-place teams will earn around $800 each.

Garena has prior experience with mobile esports, successfully supporting the competitive scenes for games like Arena of Valor and Free Fire. Many fans will be curious to see what the company does with Call of Duty: Mobile tournaments moving forward.
