The original last-man-standing Invitational returns with three tournaments,
$500,000 in prizing, and some of the most-watched streamers in the world
“H1Z1 has pioneered the massive arena shooter genre and proved that large-scale esports is possible,” said Anthony Castoro, H1Z1 General Manager. “The H1Z1 Invitational has grown and evolved over the years. As H1Z1’s popularity has increased, so has demand for this type of programming, and this new 3-tournament format allows us to be inclusive of more players and provide a weekend full of content to viewers at home.”
In addition to the H1Z1 Invitational tournaments, Daybreak will host a variety of events, discussions and more at the H1Z1 Arena throughout all three days of TwitchCon 2017. Additional details and a full schedule of events will be posted on the website as the event approaches.
Daybreak will be celebrating its Road to TwitchCon with stops at gamescom, PAX West, and Tokyo Game Show. For more information on the H1Z1 Invitational, including the Road to TwitchCon, schedule of events, competitors, and prize pool, please visit H1Z1.com/Invitational.
The H1Z1 Invitational has been the most-watched event at TwitchCon since its debut in 2015. Last year, more than 118,000 concurrent viewers tuned in to the finals to watch inboxes and Radek take the crown.
