Victory isn’t just about defeating your opponent. It is about the booty and treasure that come along with winning. It is a tradition that began a thousand years back and is still a part of us, in the form of a prize money that comes after winning a competition. One such competition is announced for the upcoming game, Injustice 2.
The event will begin on March 26, 10 days after the game’s official release. The competition will comprise of multiple tournaments, with the ultimate gold being a massive $600,000. Warner Bros. is partnering with ESL, Gamelta, esports Professional League, Gamestop, Sony, and Twitch for this event.
Playstation 4 will be the official platform to be played on and Twitch will be streaming the entire competition. The season is bound to go through 4 months and will choose 16 finalists, who will go on to LA on September 17 for the finals.
The game has got iconic villians like Scarecrow, Captain Cold, Black Adam, Brainiac and Darkseid. Darkseid is available as only a pre-order bonus and not a part of the main game. Meanwhile, an upcoming DLC will feature Starfire, Red Hood and Mortal Kombat’s very own Sub-zero. Apart from these fellas, Joker is making a return with an aesthetic that would resemble Jared Leto’s recent iteration of the character.
Our guess is that there will be many participants just for the prize money itself. Who would not want to win a whopping $600,000? This amount is pretty much enough to motivate gamers and to drag-in a lot of them into the competition. But, when seen from the outside, we would say that this is a smart marketing strategy by Warner Bros and Netherrealm Studios. The money would invite more players to join the game, increasing its player-base.
That being said, it is left to see who is going to win the ultimate prize.
