Gears 5 – the upcoming instalment in the long-running Gears of War franchise – will be released on September 10th. The first esports event to take place on the t le, GeLeagueLEAGUE Inv ational, was hosted on July 13-14th.
Each of the three major events in the upcoming season will be open to all teams, meaning both professional and amateur teams can compete. Teams from North America, Central America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and newly-added region South America will all be “awarded w h travel coverage to major international events.”
There will also be an online Pro League that includes teams from North America, Central America, and Europe. Those who compete in the Pro League won’t be able to compete in regional ladders or weekly online tournaments, providing an opportun y for less-abled teams to make a name for themselves.
TOX Gaming, a Halo organisation that temporarily entered Gears esports by picking up the former OpTic Gaming roster, won the afoLeagueoned ELEAGUE Inv ational. During Gears of War 4, the team won 17 out of 19 events that were hosted throughout the compet ive season.
Esports Insider says: The gameplay and overall production at the first Gears 5 seemed solid, but we feel as if drastic measures need to be taken to thrust a Gears t le into a new level of popular y in esports. Bringing in PGL is a decent move as has good events in the past, but we’re fairly sure ’s not enough to help Gears 5 make waves in this industry.
