Activision has announced the launch of the Call of Duty Live Event Viewer, a game-specific eSports streaming service integrated directly into the menu of the game's PlayStation 4 port.
Launched ahead of certain Call of Duty World League (CWL) Pro Division matches to occur this week, the Call of Duty Live Event Viewer is now accessible from an updated installation of Call of Duty: Black Ops III on Sony's Playstation 4 console. When selected from the main menu, the service allows players to view CWL matches, regular eSports broadcasts, and a range of what the company describes as 'community-focused programming
' including a Game with Devs series and live streams from Treyarch.
The CWL matches themselves take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week, with players competing for a piece of the $600,000 Stage 1 prize pool. Said pool makes up part of the $3 million world-wide cash bucket available to CWL players across the world in events including the CWL Pro Division and Call of Duty Championship.
Groups competing this week include Team Infused, TCM Gaming, Splyce, Team LDLC, PuLse Gaming, Giants Gaming, Millenium [sic], Epsilon eSports, exceL eSports and Vitality. A full schedule is available on the official website
