Microsoft, 343 Industries and Virgin Gaming have today announced the Halo 4 Global Championship, the largest Halo 4 tournament ever, set to take place later this summer. Players will go head-to-head across multiple live events and five weeks of online competition to prove their Halo 4 skills to the world.

There's $500,000 in prizes at stake, with a grand prize of $200,000 to be won, so there's plenty to play for. Commencing at the Rooster Teeth Expo on July 5th, the Halo 4 Global Championship will continue on Xbox Live from July 15th with free-for-all matches over a series of rounds that will take into account average scores and elimination matches.

The finals will then take place in Seattle, WA in a two-day event that runs from August 31st to September 1st, with the winning Spartan scooping the $200K in prize money. To register to take part in the Halo 4 Global Championship, head over to the registration page over on Halo Waypoint. You'll get a 'sKills' t-shirt for you Xbox Live Avatar when you enter.

You'll also find all of the terms and conditions and further instructions on registering on the Halo Waypoint page. You must be over 18 to enter and you'll obviously need an Xbox Live Gold account to play online. The contest is void in "AZ, CT, MD, TN, QUEBEC and where prohibited by law."

If you're entering, good luck and that.

Halo 3 is the only one I've ever enjoyed playing, and that now is full of people who are way too good for me.

Halo 4 multiplayer is terrible... all COD-ish and stuff, I didn't even 1000g this game, which I usually try to do with every game. I cant even bring myself to do the solo legendary campaign achievement *sigh*

@2: Easy Tiger!

MP is easily the funnest part of Halo 4 so far. I've stalled halfway through the campaign (It's alright, nothing too interesting) and Spartan Ops is some serious arse (Finished? NO! Here's another waves of enemies spawning on top of you)

Apparently the reason 343 have to do their own tournament is because MLG thought the ordnance drops were 'too random' and made games become a question of luck instead of skill.
Because calling in an AI helicopter to get additional kills for you with no additional effort is so much fairer...

I was a GOD at Halo 3, but when Reach came out it all died down. Reach was great and all but nowhere near as good as halo 3. Halo 4 was great and loved the way 343 has supported it. But I don't find myself playing it as much as I did halo 3. I do like to say I love Regicide and the competitive side of it. Yet I'm only 16 and of course wouldn't be able to register anyways.

@14, lol I'm sure you were good at Halo 3...but certainly no "God"

That title is was reserved to T2 (T-squared) and his clan.

wasn't enough variation to how people played or the maps (Wasn't paying for the extra maps & couldnt afford anything more than standard release at the time -good thing no uber shiny collectors edition). Felt more Battlefield than Cod multiplayer wise. not sure if games just felt less competitive or fun? Dont really know why.

Used to game on a small screen and cant get used to multi player on a big screen so it hinders what little ability I had in the first place. I'll stick to single player competitions, not that I'll ever be as lucky to go to e3 as I was with Halo 4 :)

@5 more fool you, the campaigns more enjoyable on Legendary difficulty solo and didnt require that much patience/frustration. So couldnt be bothered with the midnight launch achievement tho :P

Tournaments like this end up being ridiculous, since the top people are always the people with no jobs and actually have the time to play nonstop. That's how the first tourney ended up, this one will, too.

Its too bad they didnt have something like this for Halo 3 cause I might have a chance. Halo 4 is a upgrade from Reach but it still cant hold a candle to Halo 3.

I have played against the best of the best in Halo 3 and they are the real deal. If you dont play perfectly for the entire game you will lose, it can be very nerve raking.

I'm fair descent at multiplayer, not as good as I am at CoD... Well CoD before they raped it so 'anyone can play' meaning giving n00bs and campers the advantage and making the spawn system a joke (the payback system, spawning whomever you kill two feet behind you).

Always wanted Halo MP to be faster (killing times are ok, but the speed Spartans walk is a little slow).
Since H4 is the fastest yet, is my favourite, also spawning with my weapon of choice is priceless to me.
343i, could you please speed it up a little more? let's say another 20%, so dodging bullets would be easier and aiming at moving targets would be harder. That's my only suggestion to the game.
Lots of people remember the old days of H3 MP, but all I think is I'm lucky to experience and play H4 MP.
Microsoft I expect a Halo 5 Xbox One console bundle!
