Sony Announces Partnership With ESL For PS4 Tournaments

Sony have officially partnered with ESL to bring competitive tournaments to some of this years biggest games.

Sony has announced that they've officially partnered with ESL to bring competitive tournaments to the PS4. So now fans can compete directly from their consoles.

To celebrate the beginning of the NBA season, NBA 2k17 will be the first major tournament that players can participate in. The tournament will run from October 27 to November 26, with Major Cup rounds occurring every Saturday. Sony has revealed that prize packs will be available for the top three winners, with items such as a DualShock 4 and PlayStation gear on offer to win.

If NBA 2k17 isn't for you, you can participate in any of the following upcoming tournaments:

  • FIFA 17
  • WRC5
  • Project Cars
  • Madden 17
  • Mortal Kombat XL

Sign-ups are currently open and can be accessed via the Events app that is featured on your PS4's system menu. Keep in mind that if you are interested in signing up, you will need to own a copy of the game, have PlayStation Plus membership, and also have an ESL account. ESL accounts can be created at when you sign up if you don't already own one.   

At this time, tournaments will only support 1-on-1 matches. However, Sony is committed to enhancing the feature in the future.
