Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the most popular games in the world right now and it’s about to make its entrance into the realm of competitive esports. Loved by streamers, the free-to-play Battle Royale has been giving even some of the biggest names in the genre a run for their money, and now the professionals are ready to get stuck in thanks to Twitch Rivals.
Twitch Rivals is in the final stages of preparing the world’s first Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, and with some serious cash prizes up for grabs, it’s set to be one of the biggest events of the year.
The Twitch Rivals and Warzone Streamer Showdown will see the player pool grow to 30 teams of three players per region, with Taiwan, Europe and North America taking part. Taking place over two days, the tournament will have a day dedicated to each of the game’s already-iconic modes: Battle Royale and Solos.
Each day will showcase a 3.5 hour-long tournament (per region), focusing on the pure skill and talent of the players selected for the latest Twitch Rivals challenge.
While other tournaments have come before it, the Warzone x Twitch Rivals showdown represents the first officially-backed by Activision, showing a true interest in the competitive scene.
Check out all of the action as it unfurls on Twitch, starting March 25 at 17:00 CET | 9:00 AM PDT. The tournament will continue with a second stream on March 26 at 17:00 CET | 9:00 AM PDT.

If you haven’t been playing CoD: Warzone then there’s never been a better time to get stuck in. Activision and Infinity Ward have revealed the game has now reached over 30 million players since its launch on March 10, making it one of the biggest non-mobile free-to-play games of all time.
