Next month, IGN is hosting their IPL 5 tournament and Ubisoft is bringing ShootMania Storm along for a huge tournament. The prize purse for the tournament is set at $100,000 dollars - easily one of the more impressive purses in recent eSports history for a first-person shooter.
The six teams will be chosen from six different qualifiers, four held in North America and two held in Europe. Nadeo and Ubisoft have been pushing hard to move ShootMania into the eSports scene, doubtless aware of the longevity that competitive gaming can bring to a first-person shooter.
This ShootMania tournament marks IGN Pro League's first foray into the field of FPS competition and qualifiers will begin on Monday, October 1st.
Elite mode will be the official mode used for the tournament, which is played by two teams of three players each and is a return to classic FPS action that is great for players and spectators alike!
