PlayStation Asia and 2K just announced the details for NBA 2k18’s Asia Tournament. 

Local qualifying matches for NBA 2k18 Asia Tournament will be held in Hong Kong, Chinese Taipei, South Korea, the Philippines, and China. Players will have to battle it out on the virtual courts of NBA 2K18 from October to December of 2017. The top 2 ballers for each participating country will represent their nations in the NBA 2k18 Asia Tournament Grand Finals, to be held at the Taipei Game Show in Taipei, Taiwan in January 2018.

The tournament played exclusively on PlayStation 4 will have a US$10,000 prize pool, with the champion walking away with $6,000, the first runner up with $2,500, the second with $1,000, and the third runner up with $500. Players who want to qualify must be above 18 years old and have a valid passport, for obvious reasons.

NBA 2K18 Standard Edition, Legend Edition, and Legend Edition Gold will all be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC platforms in both digital and physical formats on September 19, 2017. Fans who pre-order their copies can claim the game on September 15, four days ahead of launch and will also receive free in-game DLC as a pre-order bonus.

If you think you have what it takes, don’t miss this chance to show the world what you’re made of.
