PlayStation has announced a new integration system for GameBattles directly on the in-game PS4 menu for select users.
Revealed on December 9th, PS4 users in the Americas and select Asian territories will have access to MLG GameBattles tournaments straight from the in-game menu in association with Activision, Sledgehammer Games, and High Moon.
The new system is implemented in order to provide an easy experience for players that wish to create new teams, play in tournaments, and be generally involved with the competitive scene as a whole.

Registration for tournaments on Call of Duty: WWII will open on December 10th for a collection of sizes between 2v2 and 6v6 on game modes such as Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, and other CWL game types.
A full breakdown of the features included has been provided on the PlayStation.blog,
including how to create a team, getting involved with tournaments, reporting matches, and much more.
Through the PS4 Events and Tournaments platform, you can now create and manage teams of up to 100 members including your friends, family, and favorite players on PlayStation Network. Once you setup your team, registering and participating in any of the featured Call of Duty: WWII events is as quick as a few button presses. Included in your team setup is team-specific chat, unique banners and logos, and complete tracking of your gameplay history and events you and your team have participated in.
Direct Integration into Call of Duty: WWII
Once you have chosen an event, registered, and checked-in, getting into gameplay is completely automated. Call of Duty: WWII and the Tournaments platform will automatically match your team with your opponent, setup the match types (including map rotation, rule set, etc.), and place you directly into the game lobby after you click “Join Match” from the PlayStation Tournaments section or directly within Call of Duty: WWII’s menu screen.
But what about when the match is over you ask? Again, the integration work done between our development teams ensures that your results are automatically reported, verified, and finalized without ever having to enter the results. This makes moving to your next match (Hopefully you won!) smooth, quick, and accurate, with no manual input or verification needed.
Along with this comes integration directly into the Call of Duty: WWII menus from the teams at Sledgehammer Games and High Moon. Here you can find tournaments, see the events you have upcoming, and join any of your matches that are about to start.
