'Brawlhalla' Reveals 2022 Esports Program With A $1 Million Prize Pool

by Rainier on Jan. 18, 2022 @ 2:32 p.m. PST

Brawlhalla is an epic free-to-play platform fighting game that brings players to the fight for glory in the halls of Valhalla.

Vikings, pirates, aliens, and more battle in a tourney of champions for bragging rights, mead, and the joy of delivering a beatdown. Players can play classic four player local matches, fight online, or create a custom lobby to challenge friends.

Odin, King of the Gods, built a heaven for warriors and called it Valhalla. On his command, Valkyries, beautiful goddesses of war, scoured the universe for the greatest warriors to fill this hall. To Odin’s surprise, the Valkyries brought back not only vikings, but legendary warriors of every description, and soon pirates, cowboys, Mongol warriors, Amazons, even monsters and aliens roamed the hall.

While waiting for Ragnarok, the warriors become bored. Constant battle spilled out of the Great Hall, and Asgard was smashed to rubble again and again. Odin, pulling his hair out in a last moment of desperation, set up the grand tournament. Now, the best warriors from every time and place fight to become champion, while the Valkyries constantly venture far and wide to bring back warriors who will earn them honor in Brawlhalla.

Ubisoft announced the details for Brawlhalla Esports Year Seven, which will feature a series of events in which players can earn points in Brawlhalla Power Rankings and their share of the USD $1,320,000 total prize pool.

Players from across the world will compete in 1v1 and 2v2 matches during online Seasonal Championships in Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn. The season will kick off with the Winter Championship on January 28, which will run for two consecutive weekends until February 6 and be streamed on Twitch and Youtube.

Players can register for the Winter Championship 2022 and, when the brackets are live, every other open tournament here.

On top of the seasonal competitions, Year Seven will also feature many other unique pro player invitationals. The first will be the OMEN Oasis Online Championship, which will see the top players in the Power Rankings from North America and Europe battle it out online in their respective regions in February. Future competition will see the top 32 players in the worldwide Power Rankings compete at the Mid-Season Invitational Championship in June 2022. More information on these upcoming tournaments soon.

The competitive season will conclude in November with the seventh annual Brawlhalla World Championship, also known as BCX, which will feature the largest fighting game tournament prize pool ever. As a true celebration of the year, BCX 2022 will be an open sign-up competition, giving every player, regardless of their ranking, a chance to compete for the most prestigious title in Brawlhalla Esports and a share of USD $500,000. Details will be communicated over the coming months.

Lastly, the 2022 season will also feature new additions to its esports ecosystem, with an improved Viewership Rewards system to offer new rewards for fans, and the first ever official online Japanese tournament in Brawlhalla. More details will be shared at a later date.

Brawlhalla's straightforward controls make the game easy for new players to pick up, while still having the depth to support a thriving competitive community. With more than 30 distinct warriors to choose from, each with two playstyle-altering weapon types, every victory is a spectacle worthy of the gods.

A variety of online and offline modes offer something for every Legend looking to prove their might in Asgard. Ranked queues, local 1v1 and 2v2, a four-player online free-for-all and online or local free-for-all allow up to eight warriors to take the field at once. Alternate game modes Brawlball, Snowbrawl, Bombsketball and more let the heroes sharpen their skills in new ways.

With a roster of more than 30 Legends, each with distinct two-weapon combinations and fighting styles, every aspiring warrior can find a hero that suits their playstyle.

Grab a horn of mead and prepare to face off against opponents from a different platform in the Grand Tournament of Valhalla.

Brawlhalla is currently available on Android. iOS, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|s and PC.
