Now that the SMITE Super Regionals are over, there's just one event left before the World Championships in January. This weekend, December 5-6, MLG is hosting its NA Pro League Finals for SMITE on Xbox One. 

The top six North American teams from the regular MLG Pro season will be facing off for their share of a $50,000 prize purse and a spot in the Xbox One Invitational at the SMITE World Championships next month. This event marks the end of the first competitive season we've ever seen for a MOBA on console.

What's Next

The winner of this tournament will take one of four available spots at the SMITE World Championships Xbox One Invitational. Two of those spots have already been claimed. Aware won their seat in the ESL UK Grand Finals last week. Even though Eager is competing in this tournament, they've already won their spot via the UMG Invitational earlier this month. If Eager happens to win this event as well, the open seat will go to the loser of the final match. 

The last spot in the Xbox One Invitational will go to the winner of the SWC Open Bracket in the days leading up to the World Championship event. 

Stay tuned to GameSkinny for further updates and highlights as we move into this final tournament and start looking forward to Worlds.

E3 2013 Sony Conference: Watch Dogs Gameplay Trailer Tue, 11 Jun 2013 01:58:37 -0400 ShackAttackMike

Watch Dogs has everyone on the edge of their seat, and for good reason.

Today at Sony's E3 conference Ubisoft showed off their upcoming game Watch Dogs. Yesterday was our first proper look at the game--sure, we've seen some of the side missions and tasks that you'll be able to do in the ever changing open world but the game play that was shown really gives us a taste of whats to come.

Just stunning.

First off the game looks breath taking. Visually, this is one of the best looking games that I've seen from E3. I can't wait to grab this game and install it on my custom rig and really see how far this game can go visually.

Hacking for days!

In the game play video we are shown what seems to be a mission (Not sure as to if it is a main or side mission) where it's up to the player to save his friend T-Bone. They were really able to show off a lot in this demo and I don't really want to spoil it for you so I suggest that you actually watch the video because it will blow your mind! 

Final Thoughts.

Watch Dogs truly does look amazing and should be a game that's already on your wishlist. I'll definitely be picking up Watch Dogs when it releases later this year.
