Today, Microsoft have announced with the increasing demand for e-sports, the launch of ESL Gaming on Xbox One.
The E-Sports League (ESL) is the largest independent eSports brand in the world, running online competitions globally and filling sport stadiums for live events. Watching eSports will be made easier thanks to the Xbox One, because you can directly find tournaments within the app, sign up without a second screen and open a match via the “My Matches” section.
Within your match sheet you can see your opponent’s gamer picture and gamertag, contact them directly to exchange details on how to find each other in-game and enter the results within the app. You can even read news on Xbox topics such as featured tournaments and games.
Also you can sign up for a tournament through the ESL app on Xbox One to kick-start your pro gaming career. Begin with ESL Open tournaments to gain experience, then try competing in the ESL Major tournaments with the chance to earn prizes. Keep your eyes peeled for the ESL Pro competitions and qualifiers and you could become the next eSports legend.
Whether you’re participating in eSports or just watching, there’s something for you in ESL Gaming for Xbox One, available in the Apps section of the Xbox One Store* today.
