Indeed, the PlayStation Cup will be held every week from July 7th, allowing players to try three times to reach the finals, as only the top 33 from each region will earn a spot and the chance to win a share of the $230,800 in-game pot for the occasion.

To begin with, it is worth mentioning that, as the name implies, only players with a Sony console will be able to participate, especially since it must be on PS4 or PS5. The three qualifying cups will be held in different game modes, namely Architect, Arsenal and Traditional.

Qualification

Skill 1 is based on the Architect mode, which gives players the ability to modify structures built by players, including opponents. Qualifier 2, on the other hand, will use the Arsenal starting mode, where all players start with a predefined arsenal. As for Qualifier 3, it will be a traditional solo competition, and unfortunately for some, it will be with builds.

After qualifiers 1 and 2, the top 33 players will qualify for the finals on July 24, while in qualifier 3 it will be the top 34.

The final will be held in 6 parts, which will last approximately 3 hours. It is important to remember that the first game starts ten minutes after opening the session window, and a new game starts automatically 30 minutes after the previous one. Organizers note that “if a team does not show up or misses the start of any game, it will be considered last (or tied) with zero eliminations for that game. »
