Electronic Arts and Virgin Gaming have teamed up to announce a special celebration for the launch of Battlefield 3 this October. In their words, “The largest console videogame competition in gaming history.” Players from around the world can join Virgin Gaming (if they’re not already a member) to pre-register for the “Worldwide Conquest Tournament” which will begin in early 2012 and will pit players against each other in the fight for their share of a $1.6 million prize pool, apparently the biggest cash prize in gaming history.
As one of the most highly-anticipated games of 2011, and having already scored numerous industry awards in the gaming world’s major tradeshows, Battlefield 3 certainly looks set to fight it out with its major rival, the Call of Duty series, for sales. The latest installment, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is due out two weeks after Battlefield 3. Both games are renowned for their fiercely competitive multiplayer, and it looks as though the “Worldwide Conquest Tournament” will find the most skilled Battlefield players honing their talents for a shot at the prize.
