Today, NBA 2K announced that a brand new esports competition will be taking place with the launch of NBA 2K19 MyTEAM Unlimited $250,000 Tournament. The series announced the details of a new competition that will run from October 13th, 2018 until February 13th, 2019 in which 32 players will face off for $250k! Here are the few details that were released earlier today.
The tournament will be played using the new MyTEAM Unlimited Mode, which features 5-on-5 NBA-style gameplay and allows users to choose any 13 cards from their Collection. 32 contestants (16 each on Xbox One & PS4) who qualify during weekly events will advance to a single elimination tournament, scheduled to take place on February 2, 2019. 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.
As of right now, the full rules and signup information has not been released, only a link to this page for people to check out at a later date. Hopefully, more details will come out from NBA 2K19 before we reach the month of October.
