Tekken 7, Guilty Gear Strive, and Auto Chess will participate in Sony’s PlayStation Tournament program. All three titles will be added to the Summer Win-a-thon, which begins in July and ends in August. Participating players will have a chance to win prizes, including a PlayStation 5.
The Extended PlayStation Tournament Series has been going on since May 2020. Monthly competitions allow players from all over the world to compete against each other for prizes and glory. The Open Series has created a community that celebrates the competitive nature of players.
Summer Win-a-thon allows players to go beyond bragging rights and allows them to compete for actual prizes. Winning games on the list of Summer Win-a-thon titles will move players up the Open Series leaderboard. The higher the score, the more prizes. The top 1,000 players will be awarded $10 PS Store credits, while the first to finish will win a PlayStation 5 along with $250 PS Store credits.
Sony is encouraging players to try the Open Series by offering avatars and themes as rewards to those competing in all four of Switzerland’s qualifying matches for each title.
The Open Series is filled with competitive games that allow players to test their skills against their global peers. Initially, the Open Series consisted of 11 games including titles like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, FIFA 21, and Soulcalibur VI. With the beginning of Summer Win-a-thon, Tekken 7, Auto Chess, and Guilty Gear Strive will increase the lineup to 14 healthy matches for players to compete in.
