Sony Announces Playstation League eSports Program in Spain;

eSports have become a hot topic in gaming since the rise of games like League of Legends and Starcraft, so leave it to Sony to dive into the wide world of electronic athleticism with a league of their own.

Sony announced Liga Oficial Playstation (Official Playstation League) in Spain today, the company’s own eSports platform for Playstation. According to the conference, Playstation League will be free for PS+ users, with a direct link to the player’s PSN account. Matchmaking will be determined through the account’s history. Sony has also introduced individual and team-based prizes, along with seasons (the first season lasts until January 11, 2015).

Sony has confirmed a significant amount of third-party support for Playstation League, with games like Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts and FIFA 15 as the proposed launch lineup. Other games like NBA 2K15 and DriveClub will join the lineup in the near future. Sony aims to not only add more competitive games to the lineup, but also “have the support of associations and other partners.”

The Playstation League begins in Spain on October 16, 2015, with expansion to Portugal and Italy in the near future. Full expansion to more European regions is also in the works. No other territories have been confirmed yet.
