The new Call of Duty Live Event Viewer brings competitive Call of Duty directly to the fans!
Beginning today, eager fans can watch all of the competitive action of the Call of Duty World League Presented by PlayStation 4, from directly in-game.
In conjunction with the weekly worldwide competition across the globe, the Live Event Viewer will broadcast key CWL Pro Division matches from Australia/New Zealand, Europe and North America, in addition to other major esports-related events.
Fans interested in viewing these matches directly from the Black Ops III in-game menu on PlayStation®4 can simply launch the game and head to the Featured box in the top left of the screen of the Main Menu. From there, it is a one-button press to jump right into the action where players can watch Call of Duty World league competitive matches, bringing esports directly to the game. In addition to regular eSports broadcasts, the Live Event Viewer will be used for community focused programming such as Game with Devs and Treyarch livestreams.
Regular CWL matches take place on Tuesday and Wednesday of every week. Teams will be playing for their part of the $600,000 Stage 1 prize pool. This year, the CWL will be awarding more than $3 million dollars worldwide, including the CWL Pro Division and the Call of Duty Championship. Below are times for each weekly broadcast and the finals dates per region. After weeks of tough competition, each region is nearing their finals, and the last few matches are going to be vital in determining who will be part of the regional finals.
