Every year, Call of Duty gathers the best to compete for part of a $1 million prize. This year, for the first time, not only will the championship be open to the public, but amateurs will be able to compete as well.
The Call of Duty Championship 2015 will take place at the end of March (27-29), as was announced by Sledgehammer Games, Activision and Xbox.
Tickets go on sale this Tuesday at 10 a.m. PDT and can be purchased at the Major League Gaming website. The tickets start at $50 and are available in two packages.
For $50 fans will get the Gold Package. The Gold Package includes a three day pass, a token to download Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s “Ascendance” DLC, and a Call of Duty 2015 premium personalization pack for Advanced Warfare.
For fans willing to pay a little extra, there’s the Platinum Package selling for $100. The Platinum Package will include everything mentioned as well as a Call of Duty Championship 2015 sweatshirt and VIP seating for the event.
The Call of Duty publisher, Activision, is looking to use this competition to “boost eSports to new heights.”
Glan Schofield, co-founder of Sledgehammer, added, “We developed Advanced Warfare with the competitive community in mind, and we can’t wait for the top talent from around the world to compete in the Call of Duty Championships.”
First-person shooters are always on the competitive side, Call of Duty being no exception, so championships understandably get a lot of attention. Anything that will help fans boost their abilities do as well, such as double XP weekend.
Double experience point weekend is currently underway for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and as fans rack up the points, they’re also looking for new gear drops and modes.
Although Gun Game mode was originally seen in Call of Duty: Black Ops, there was not enough time to complete it for the release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. This weekend, it finally arrived.
In Gun Game mode, players start with the same pistol and every time they kill an opponent, their weapon changes. The winner is the player who kills using each of the 20 weapons in the game.
One Shot Mosh Pit is a new playlist for Call of Duty. This playlist includes snipers only and offers a variety of game modes.
