If variety really is the spice of life, the eSports options for top level competitive gamers in the UK are getting a lot spicier this year.
Gfinity announced today that it is adding four games—”DOTA 2,” “StarCraft II,” “FIFA” and “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive”—to its 2014 eSports lineup. Each game will get a five-week season that begins on February 24, which each leg of every tournament streamed live on www.gfinity.net. Tournaments will feature prize pools of up to $10,000, something that has already enticed the top six Alienware Pro League teams to sign up for “CS:GO.”
The new additions will give Gfinity live content to stream on a regular basis every Tuesday to Friday night, the first time any entity has attempted a schedule that ambitious in the UK. The company hopes to continue to expand its offerings and has hinted at more announcements to come for the remainder of 2014.
Interested teams can hit the Gfinity official site to get registered before entries close on February 17. Full tournament and broadcast schedules can also be found there.
