We can confirm that a second iteration of HEXLAN will take place this year - at the same venue of GAME Trafford Centre, with the eSports arena now re-branded as Belong Manchester.
Twelve teams will compete this time, doubling the original's cap of six. This is in due part to an extra 14 stations, 24 in total, all pre-fitted with mix-amps making the running of the event a faster and smoother process than before.
Things we can confirm so far:
- Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [PS4]
- One-day event
- Double Elimination knockout format (opposed to the round-robin and finals format of original)
- CWL rules will be in effect
- Summer event
- Prize pay-out at the venue, eligible to all including any Rize host team that may enter
Extra details at this stage, including age-gate, prizepool size and most importantly date of the event will be released as they are finalised by everyone involved in the running.
UPDATE: Date of the event is 22nd July 2017
