Most multiplayer games releasing now are expected to have an esports component available at some point down the line. It seems like Naraka: Bladepoint is no exception to this rule. Back in August, we reported about the Naraka: Bladepoint Morus Cup, presented by EGL.tv under the auspices of NetEase Games. Now, in a recent announcement made on the official Naraka: Bladepoint Weibo account, it seems as though 24 Entertainment will be taking a major step into global esports with the announcement of the Naraka: Bladepoint World Championship.
What is the Naraka: Bladepoint World Championship?
According to the video posted on the Naraka: Bladepoint Weibo account, the Naraka: Bladepoint World Championships will be 24 Entertainment’s first step in creating a “global esports infrastructure” for the Naraka: Bladepoint scene.
After the conclusion of the Naraka: Bladepoint Open Finals, which ended today according to the Naraka Esports Facebook page, the Naraka: Bladepoint World Championship will commence. The video doesn’t make it clear as to whether the event will be open registration or invite-only, but Guan Lei, executive producer of Naraka: Bladepoint, does note that the team at 24 Entertainment are working with top-class Chinese battle royale players and esports organizations to bring the best possible teams and players to the Naraka: Bladepoint World Championship.
Perhaps the most significant detail regarding the Naraka: Bladepoint World Championship is the tournament’s 10,000,000 CNY prize pool, which is the equivalent of $1.5 million+. Fans of Naraka: Bladepoint are sure to come out to either compete or watch the event with such a significant prize pool. Winners of the world championship will also be rewarded with exclusive, in-game skins to commemorate their achievement.
Based on what’s seen in the video, the goal for Naraka Esports is to grow globally and to see a diversity of players competing from outside of Asia, where most of the competition seems to be concentrated in.
The event will begin in mid-November, with the grand final beginning in January of 2022. So far, no rules or information regarding the format of the Naraka: Bladepoint World Championship has gone live, but should any significant news develop regarding this event or Naraka esports, we will be sure to cover it.
