Monolith will host a pro-am tournament for MOBA title "Guardians of Middle-earth" at PAX Prime in Seattle this weekend.
Guardians of Middle-earth, Monolith Productions' upcoming multiplayer online battle arena based on J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, will host a pro-am tournament at PAX Prime in Seattle this weekend, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive announced today.
The tournament will take place on Friday, August 31st through Sunday, September 2nd. Each day will be its own sub-tournament, with qualifying, semi-final, and final rounds between teams of five. The winning teams on Friday and Saturday will receive Guardians of Middle-earth-themed Astro gaming headsets, and Sunday's winner will walk away with a customized Guardians-branded Xbox 360 console.
Prior to the game's official announcement earlier this year, Warner Bros. tested Guardians of Middle-earth with several professional MOBA players, detailed in the video below. Five of these players will participate as a team in Saturday's event.
Tournament registration is open on the game's official website. PAX Prime will take place in Seattle, Washington this weekend, and Polygon will be on-site providing coverage.
