Gotta be in it to win it.
The NBA 2K19 MyTEAM Unlimited $250,000 Tournament has today been announced, starting up on 13 October and running through to 13 February 2019.
With a prize pool of $250,000 up for grabs — it’s in the name — the 5v5 NBA-style tournament will be played using the game’s new MyTEAM Unlimited mode.
The tournament will consist of 16 weekend qualifiers, with users required to participate in each GameDay qualifying event (1 per week). Users will earn tickets for competing, with each GameDay qualifying one user from Xbox One and one from PS4.
“Qualifiers will advance to a single elimination tournament, scheduled to take place on February 2, 2019,” 2K advised. “Winners of the Xbox One and PS4 tournaments will be crowned console champions and advance to the Championship Finals, which will be played on Xbox One the week before NBA All-Star Weekend in NYC, and will be contested in a best of 3 format and livestreamed on 2K channels.”
In addition to the cash prize, both finalists will win a trip to the NBA All-Star Weekend.
NBA 2K19 heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch on 11 September.
