Pre-Registration Opens Today for Cross-Canada Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Tournament
Gamers Competing for $100,000 in Total Prizing
Time to quit that job of yours, and just play Uncharted 4. $100,000 could buy you and your family a shit load of Bagel Bites.
I’m a bit surprised that it’s not Overwatch but I don’t think it’s ready for the WorldGaming stage yet. It will be interesting to see how Uncharted 4’s multiplayer holds up in a competitive landscape. I haven’t dived into it all that much but I’m going give it another shot. Hell, you might see me competing.
I’ll flex my gaming muscles for that kind of $$$.
