The first six-figure Overwatch tournament has been announced by ESL recently, and it will take place in August at Gamescom this year. The tournament is named the Overwatch Atlantic Showdown, and will pit eight pro Overwatch teams, four from Europe and the rest from the US, against each other as they compete for the grand prize of $100,000.

This is the largest Overwatch tournament to be announced yet, and is the first to have a six-figure prize pool. Open qualifiers will be hosted on ESL Play, will begin on June 27, and will last around 4 days.
