Xbox and The Coalition today announced the Gears eSports Pro Circuit for Gears of War 4. Gears of War gamers can compete in live open events around the world operated by tournament organizers Major League Gaming (MLG) and Gfinity for a starting $1,000,000 in cash prizes.

Players worldwide can earn “Gears Pro Points” by competing in regional MLG GameBattles online ladders and in daily and weekly tournaments. Gears Pro Points qualify players for the international circuit open LAN events that take place every 1-2 months from the Gears of War 4 game launch in October 2016 to July 2017. The Gears Pro Circuit features more international crossplay and competition than ever before in Gears of War history as top teams from North America, Europe, Latin America, and Oceania will qualify via Gears Pro Points to be flown around the world to compete against each other at these events. Teams that don’t qualify for the top travel spots will still be able to compete at local events or any international event of their choosing.
