Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, NetherRealm Studios, and Intersport have announced the Mortal Kombat 11 Pro Kompetition 2019/2020, the inaugural season of the global esports program featuring the next entry in the Mortal Kombat franchise, Mortal Kombat 11.
For this year, the Mortal Kombat 11 Pro Kompetition will offer combatants of all ranks a chance to compete in nine different live tournaments across North America, Latin America, and Europe, along with multiple online events. The first stop on North America’s Pro Kompetition will take place from May 24-26 at Combo Breaker 2019 in Chicago, Illinois.
Combatants in the competition will all be fighting for a chunk of a whopping $155,000 prize pool and the opportunity to qualify for one of 12 spots in Final Kombat, the championship finale.
In addition, four additional spots in the finals will be reserved for winners of Canada’s Northern Arena, Latin America’s Liga Latina, and the Interkontinental Kombat which takes place across Western and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Australia, with the final spot given through a last-chance qualifier tournament hosted the day prior to Final Kombat. May the best spine ripper win, eh?
The top 16 players from the various events will qualify for Final Kombat, and have the chance to take home an additional cut of a $100,000 prize pool. Final Kombat is scheduled for Q1 of 2020 in Chicago, Illinois and will be live-streamed via NetherRealm’s Twitch page, as will all Mortal Kombat 11 Pro Kompetition regular season tournaments.
