CDV and e-sports (eurgh) company Turtle Entertainment have teamed up to organise a Blitzkrieg online championship to support the international release of the World War II real-time strategy title. The competition will begin at the end of April in the Electronic Sports League, Europe's largest online league.
Up to 128 players will be able to compete in the tournament, and finalists will be hauled over to the Games Convention in Leipzig later in the year to determine an overall winner, who will eventually be walking away with a €5,000 (about £3,400) prize. Nice.
CDV is planning more tournaments in the UK, France and the USA to coincide with the release dates in those countries. More information about the tournaments can be gathered from the official Blitzkrieg website.
