GameSquare-owned esports organization Complexity Gaming announced Thursday that it has partnered with the U.S. Army for Soldier Showdown 5, a “multi-title, cross-platform esports tournament for active-duty U.S. service members.” Now in its fifth year, Soldier Showdown is a joint venture between the U.S. Army Installation Management Command’s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (U.S. Army MWR) and Complexity
Soldier Showdown 5 officially launches on May 6, and will feature competitions in Multiversus in May, Rocket League in July, and Call of Duty: Warzone in September. The top-ranked players in each game will advance to a live finals at Complexity’s headquarters—the Lenovo Legion Esports Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas—in November. The event had to pause in-person events over the last several years due to COVID-19.
New for this year’s competitions, Complexity will utilize Stream Hatchet to measure the performance of players and the overall event.
Registration is open for “active-duty U.S. Army soldiers, Army National Guard, Army Reserve, and active duty military stationed on Army joint bases,” according to a release. More details about the competition can be found at www.armymwr.com/esports.
