Many Halo fans have fond memories of overnight LAN parties at a friend’s house or their first tournament at a local gaming center. These experiences are core to Halo’s DNA, and uniting local players is crucial to building a strong backbone for community growth. Today, we’re excited to announce that Microsoft Store will be a home for that community growth by hosting monthly Halo 5 tournaments in over 50 locations around North America, as well as locations in Puerto Rico and Australia!
Beginning August 6 and open to all players, the Microsoft Store will host a series of monthly tournaments featuring various formats to help players meet, share fun and memorable experiences, as well as win some prizes along the way. Here’s a look at the schedule:
- August 6: Free-For-All (6-player)
- September 3: Team Doubles (2v2)
- October 8: 4v4 (HCS settings)
For each tournament, all participating players will receive a Gold REQ pack, while the Top 3 players/teams will take home Platinum REQ packs. Additionally, each month, 5 lucky participants will receive limited edition controllers. To top it all off, if you participate in all three tournaments, you’ll be entered to win an all-new Xbox One X!
Here's a look at the participating stores, and you can register for the first tournament on August 6 here.
