H1Z1 may be lagging behind PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite but what its competitors doesn’t have is a $500,000 prize pool invitational. The first leg of the three-day tournament kicked off earlier today at TwitchCon 2017 with the Challenger Qualifiers.
“The most watched event at TwitchCon since its debut in 2015 has returned bigger than ever with an overall prize pool of $500,000 and three action-packed tournaments. In anticipation of one of competitive gaming’s biggest showdowns, Daybreak has updated H1Z1’s look, simplifying both the in-game menus and the name. Moving forward, the game will be simply referred to as H1Z1.”
The invitational will culminate on Sunday with a match between the top H1Z1 players, streamers, and Twitch personalities, all vying for the top spot and a piece of the $500,000 prize. Check out the event trailer below. You can also catch the action on the H1Z1 official Twitch channel.
