Blizzard will host its first ever Overwatch tournament in the SEA region, the company announced earlier today. The event will run from March 25 until May 6, with registration closing on March 15.

The tournament will be held on the PC version of the game, with the winning team earning $2,500 in prize money. This event is open to everyone and serves as a purpose to test the waters of the region and highlight Overwatch players in a weekly show.

The tournament is most likely being used to showcase the region’s talent and have players compete for a chance to be noticed at entry-level competitive play. Razerzone’s Razer Arena Program is running this event, in which only players from the SEA region are able to compete.

The top-32 teams from the open qualifiers will advance into a round robin group stage, until a winner is crowned.

If it has anything to do with Nintendo and Pokémon chances are you will see me talking about it, covering, and likely not sleeping while playing it.
