Call of Duty fans will be able to watch CWL Nola live via the in-game Head Quarters this weekend.
Eagled eyed fans will have spotted the prompt that told users about this weekend’s action being available live in-game for the first time since the WWII release.
CWL Nola is the second event of the Call of Duty season and the first of the calendar year, featuring the biggest ever Call of Duty Open Bracket.
The season kicked off with CWL Dallas, where Team Kaliber overcame Splyce in the Grand Final to secure the first title of the year and the organization’s first ever major accolade.
CWL Nola is due to kick off today, Friday January 12, and will conclude on Sunday January 14.
$200,000 is on the line in the Big Easy, as well as a host of valuable Pro Points that will determine which teams qualify for the CWL Pro League.
Users will now see the following prompt on their consoles.
However, some concerns have been raised after one Reddit user said he did not see the prompt despite playing long hours on the game.
Visibility of the prompt could ultimately be crucial to fans even knowing where they can catch the action so they don’t miss out on what promises to be an outstanding tournament.
Major Call of Duty tournaments have previously been streamed in-game, with this level of integration considered key by many to building the COD esports fan base.
Popular titles like League of Legends pioneered broadcasting major competitions in their own games, to great effect.
CWL New Orleans is due to go live today, starting with eUnited v Echo Fox at 2PM CST.
Dexerto will be on the floor at CWL New Orleans all weekend bringing you the best action live from the floor. You can follow all our coverage from our event hub.
