- Amazon began Mobile Masters in 2017, this year it will be held from June 23-24
- Each game will have a separate tournament, the overall prize pool will be $100k
- Amazon’s competitive gaming service GameOn will open qualifiers to the public
Following last year’s successful series of esports events, Amazon is bringing back the Mobile Masters from June 23-24 this year.
The series will bring amateur and professional esports players together to compete in a variety of mobile titles: Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, Survival Arena, World of Tanks Blitz and Critical Ops. Players will compete over the two days for a share of the $100,000 (£73k) prize pool but how that will be divided has yet to be announced.
Mobile Masters has moved from Las Vegas to Seattle for this year so that the tournaments can be broadcast out of Amazon’s new state-of-the-art streaming studio in the Washington City.
Amazon have announced their own set of esports tournaments, Mobile Masters, is back
Power Rangers: Legacy Wars and Survival Arena will be running early round qualifiers for players to earn a spot at Mobile Masters in Seattle. Qualifiers will be open to players of all levels thanks to GameOn.
GameOn is Amazon’s recently launched competitive gaming service which allows developers to integrate competitions natively into their games across platforms and devices through a set of flexible APIs.
‘In talking with nWay and Game Insight, we recognized both developers were looking for ways to scale their competitive play,’ said Marja Koopmans, Director of Amazon Competitive Gaming. ‘With GameOn, they can now run qualifiers across the globe for Mobile Masters, identify the best players in their games, award prizes to participants and nurture talent creating a stronger sense of community. We’re thrilled to help these developers realize their vision and host their top players at Mobile Masters this summer.’
Taehoon Kim, CEO, nWay who develop Power Rangers Legacy added: ‘Now that we have integrated GameOn, we’re already seeing significant growth in community engagement with our average weekly play time increasing by 28%. We’ve also seen fan interest increase around competitions and the ability to win real-world prizes. This is an incredible innovation that brings the physical and digital world together in a way that takes competitive mobile gaming to another level.’
