WBIE Announce $500,000 ESL Mortal Kombat Season 3

Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment has announced the onset of a third season of the Mortal Kombat XL Electronic Sports League, boasting a $500,000 total prize pool for players to contest in 2016.

Burbank, Calif. – March 30, 2016 – Coming on the heels of the second pro league finals, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced an expansion of Mortal Kombat X esports by launching a new competitive series in April that includes the ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League Season 3 and the ESL Challenger Cup, as well as official sponsorships of local tournaments across North America and Europe. The total prize pool for the program is $500,000 USD and with new characters now available to play in the recently released Mortal Kombat XL, the time has never been better for fans across the globe to compete and win while enjoying the best selling fighting game from NetherRealm Studios.

“Mortal Kombat has always been about friends going head-to-head in ‘couch competition.’ With Mortal Kombat X, these players now have multiple ways of jumping into the tournament scene to prove their skills and win cash,” said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios and co-creator of Mortal Kombat. “This is the biggest commitment we’ve made to the esports scene and with our newly enhanced online experience, we’re looking forward to seeing the intense match-ups at the various tournaments we’re supporting.”

The third season of the ESL Mortal Kombat X Pro League begins April 3 with the best players from around the world facing off for supremacy during an eight-week online season. Sixteen finalists across North America, Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and for the first time, Latin America, will convene June 12 in Burbank, Calif. for a live showdown in front of a studio audience. PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system players will be fighting to win a piece of the $200,000 USD prize pool, which will be distributed among the eight finalists, granting more players than ever a chance to earn a share of the prize.

The ESL Mortal Kombat X Challenger Cup kicks off April 2 and offers an all-new way for PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One gamers who are not competing in the ESL Pro League to battle online for cash and prizes. Open tournaments across North America, Europe, CIS and Latin America will be held weekly through the end of June, with monthly finals to be streamed live.

Additionally, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios will continue to support local tournaments across North America and Europe with sponsorships and contributions to prize pool funding.

Fans can continue to show their support for Mortal Kombat X esports by purchasing the Blue Steel Sub-Zero or recently released character skin via the PlayStation®Store or Xbox Marketplace. A portion of the proceeds goes towards supporting Mortal Kombat X tournament prize pools.

Mortal Kombat X is NetherRealm Studios’ most recent installment in its legendary, critically acclaimed fighting game franchise that propels the iconic franchise into a new generation. The game combines a cinematic presentation with all new gameplay to deliver the most brutal Kombat experience ever, offering a new fully-connected experience that launches players into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy. For the first time, Mortal Kombat X gives players the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style. Players step into an original story showcasing some of the game’s most prolific characters including Scorpion and Sub-Zero, while introducing new challengers that represent the forces of good and evil and tie the tale together.

The announcement was vaguely teased recently by Ed Boon, leading some fans to speculate updates to the abandoned ported version of Mortal Kombat X would be coming. Alas; $500,000 is not presently expected to be spent elsewhere amongst the fandom or player base.

I'm not into the whole tournament scene, but half a mil sure sounds nice.

Well, I'd imagine Sonic Fox' college tuition is paid for. Guess they figure he needs a house too.

I'd imagine we'll see a lot more of the big names coming up since they won't be losing to the "online tactics" that rollback has eradicated.

There are bigger sacrifices one might be asked to make than going a little mad.

And people thought that the 500,000 referred to PC sales? Haha damn. $500,000 is an amazing prize.

This announcement is for Sonicfox and 31 other pros

Mortalkombatonline should do a poll to see who actually cares.

I predict that 99.9% could care less

Sex is Evil, Evil is Sin, Sin is forgiven, so Sex is in. I kill people for a living. Get over it.

Is it too late to enter the challenger thing? I feel I could win. At least a match.

So half a million bucks for a dozen pro players, but they won't support half a million people who bought MKX and KP1 on PC? Great.

And they expect more active PC players without supporting the game with new content? Nonsense.

I'm so disappointed. Again.

Poor PC players... But that's the risk you take for playing a ported game that is meant for console play. Anyways, I'm glad to see a season 3! This is going to be awesome watching more pro players get involved and try to make a run at Sonic Fox.
