The MLG Columbus Open 25k will be an early test to see how the world’s best teams fair with the new title. But there’s more than just bragging rights on the line; at stake is a $25,000 prize pool, a 25,000 Pro Points top prize, and four spots in Season 1 of the MLG Pro League for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s all-new movement system will be front and center this weekend, with a fast and vertical style of play that changes nearly every aspect of the game.
