Twitch has announced a loaded Halo Infinite Twitch Rivals event, featuring both former and current pro players with $50k up for grabs. Here’s everything you need to know about the tournament.
- $50,000 split between eight teams
- Captains chosen from legacy and modern pro players
- Action unfolds on Monday, December 13
After a long hiatus, competitive Halo is back — and it’s certainly back with a vengeance. Official Halo Championship Series competition is already in full swing, and Twitch has decided to host their own Halo Infinite Showdown as well.
With $50,000 up for grabs, and both former and current Halo pros heading up each team, there’s bound to be plenty of excitement in store. Here’s where you can catch all the action, along with the event schedule and everything else we know so far.
Halo Infinite $50k Twitch Rivals stream & schedule
The Twitch Rivals Halo Infinite Showdown will take place on Monday, December 13, with the first matches starting at 3 PM EST / 6 PM PST / 8 PM GMT / 9 PM CET.
All the action will take place on the same day and will likely last well into the evening (or the next morning, depending on which time zone you’re in). You can tune into the official Twitch Rivals channel, or watch each participant’s POV, which they’re required to stream.
Halo Infinite $50k Twitch Rivals format & prize pool
The Twitch Rivals Halo Infinite Showdown will feature eight teams, divided into two groups: legacy and modern. The event will also feature two stages of competition: a round robin contest, followed by a final set of cross-group matches.
The robin matches consist of five games each, featuring various Halo Infinite modes and maps, to determine the placements within each group.
Then, each squad will face off against the other group’s team that earned the same placement — in other words, the top-ranked team from the legacy group will play the top-ranked modern team, so on and so forth.
With a $50k prize pool up for grabs, there’s certainly plenty on the line. How much each team takes home will depend on their group and cross-group results — here’s how the cash will be doled after the dust settles:
- Group Placements:
- 1st: $8,300
- 2nd: $6,300
- 3rd: $4,200
- 4th: $2,200
- Cross-Group Finals:
- Win: $1,000
- Loss: $600
