PlayStation Experience Invitational Preview

Six teams from North America and two from Europe will square off this weekend at the PlayStation Experience Invitational. Here's what we know ahead of the event.

With several shakeups to who the exact attendees will be, as OpTic Gaming, Team EnVyUs, and Splyce all declined invitations, the PlayStation Experience Invitational will kick off tomorrow at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Eight teams will compete in the event from Dec. 3 to 4, vying for a share of the $20,000 prize pool.

From the time of writing, one day before the event, Activision, Call of Duty, and Playstation all have not given the general public a schedule, tournament format, or prize breakdown.

We’ll add those facts in when that information is fully released to the public.
