PlayStation Partners with ESL to Bring Tournaments Feature to PS4

ESL organised and sponsored tournaments to be delivered right to the PS4 user interface.

Sony has just announced a new Tournaments feature for the PS4. Partnering with ESL, the feature will deliver numerous ESL organised tournaments to a wide variety of games. You'll be able to sign up to these tourneys directly from the PlayStation 4's Events menu, and the system will automatically prompt you when it's time to play your matches.

The feature is set to go live immediately with an NBA 2K17 tournament slated to run from October 27 to November 26, with major cup rounds taking place every Saturday. Signups for this event open today. More events will follow in the near future, with titles such as Mortal Kombat X and Project CARS already stated to be joining the ranks.

Global integration is confirmed, with 15 languages already supported. At present, the feature only supports 1 on 1 matches, but updates and enhancements will be sure to follow. Be sure to check out your Events menu on the PS4 to see it in action.

The official PlayStation statement has been posted on the official PlayStation blog.
