Today, Ubisoft announced the details for Brawlhalla Esports Year Seven, which will feature a series of events in which players can earn points in Brawlhalla Power Rankings and their share of the USD $1,320,000 total prize pool. Players from across the world will compete in 1v1 and 2v2 matches during online Seasonal Championships in Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn. The season will kick off with the Winter Championship on January 28, which will run for two consecutive weekends until February 6.

This is by far the largest tournament for the game. Previous tournaments had prize pools of several thousand dollars, which was split among the winning players.

On top of the seasonal competitions, Year Seven will also feature many other unique pro player invitationals. The first will be the OMEN Oasis Online Championship, which will see the top players in the Power Rankings from North America and Europe battle it out online in their respective regions in February. Future competition will see the top 32 players in the worldwide Power Rankings compete at the Mid-Season Invitational Championship in June 2022. More information on these upcoming tournaments soon.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Brawlhalla, it’s an epic platform fighter for up to eight players competing either online or on local machines. That is one of the things that makes it so interesting. It’s also free to play, and available on the PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android platforms, and on Steam for the PC.
The big spike in prize money should increase interest in the game, especially since it is available for free and on multiple platforms. Players can try it out and if they have a natural talent for the brawler, might be able to snag some winnings in this or future tournaments. This tournament in particular is open to everyone, so there is nothing to lose by giving it a try. And we also expect that some of the leading eSports and betting sites, like Speedybet and others, will also soon start taking notice as the game’s popularity surges.
For this season, the competitions will conclude in November with the seventh annual Brawlhalla World Championship, also known as BCX, which will feature the largest fighting game tournament prize pool ever. As a true celebration of the year, BCX 2022 will be an open sign-up competition, giving every player, regardless of their ranking, a chance to compete for the most prestigious title in Brawlhalla Esports and a share of USD $500,000. Details will be communicated over the coming months.
Lastly, the 2022 season will also feature new additions to its esports ecosystem, with an improved Viewership Rewards system to offer new rewards for fans, and the first ever official online Japanese tournament in Brawlhalla. More details will be shared at a later date.
