The team of ex-Blizzard devs at Red 5 have partnered with the Electronic Sports League to dliver Firefall’s first major tournament at gamescom 2012. Qualifying matches will be held at the ESL’s Arena on the showfloor on August 16 and 17, with the grand final to be held on August 18 and a cool €10,000 (about $11,700) on the table. Of course, not many of us are in a position to fly to Cologne next week, but that’s why we were given livestreaming; the whole thing will be broadcast through ESL.

Firefall, for those under rocks, is a free-to-play MMO FPS with a distinctly Tribes-feel, an extensive and convoluted sci-fi backstory, and a gorgeous cartton aesthetic. It’s currently in closed beta; visit the game’s website for more information and to sign up.
