Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced its plans for Evo 2021 Online. This includes the implementation of three different tournaments that will be held through the month of June and into August 2021. While there will be a total of three tournaments, each category will have more than one hundred and twenty smaller events. Additionally, this tournament is limited to PlayStation 4 users. Registration is currently open, and entirely for free. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
As mentioned previously, Evo 2021 Online will begin in June. The first tournament, FGC Arcade Evo Edition, will begin on June 10 and last until June 22, 2021. The second tournament, Evo Warm-Up Rounds, will begin on June 26 and last until July 13, 2021. And lastly, the Evo Side Tournament will begin on July 8 and last until August 3, 2021. A full schedule for each event is currently available. This includes the list of games and the amount of prize money that will be at each tournament. A few of these games include Guilty Gear Strive, Tekken 7, Street Fighter V Champion Edition, and Mortal Kombat 11.
Some tournaments do come with a few stipulations, however. For example, the FGC Arcade Evo Edition tournament will be exclusive to European and North American audiences. Additionally, the Evo Side Tournament event will be held separately for Japanese and Asian participants. Those who wish to participate must have an active PlayStation Plus subscription, as the tournament will be held online.
