If you've been following events here on FPS General, you'll be familiar with the King of the Hill tournaments that we've been planning alongside Curse.com.
If not, the brief back story here is that we're going to be running a series of tournaments each week in a variety of games, including Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and DayZ. Each week we will be crowning a new King of the Hill in each game we're playing. It's not all about shooters, however, as we have matches going in League of Legends, World of Warcraft, World of Tanks and more.
This week's DayZ Showdown is going to be particularly special, as we're going to be hosting the battle on Utes Island instead of the traditional Chernarus. Our version of Utes is totally customized for the DayZ Showdown, however.
With that being the case, some of the rules have changed, namely:
- 10 new vehicles have been added (Evo Go-Kart Plane Old-Motorbike Offroad-motorbike Tractor Humvee Bicycle Ambulance The-Beast)
- 4 New Player Models
- 46 New Weapons
- New Camp
- New Spawn system
Utes Island will also feature some new enemies on the map, in addition to the ever present threat of other players. The rest of the rules are the same, so be sure to check out previous DayZ Showdown posts to check those out.
As with every King of the Hill tournament, the winner will walk away with $100 prize money and the title of Curse's DayZ King of the Hill for the week.
