Turner & IMG’s ELEAGUE will feature Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4, the upcoming title from Activision’s Call of Duty series, as the culmination of the Call of Duty Endowment’s epic three-day charity livestream celebrating the game’s release. ELEAGUE’s fan-focused streaming event will pick up the action immediately after the close of the CODNATION Challenge livestream, which runs Thursday, Oct. 11, through Saturday, Oct. 13. Through this unique streaming event, ELEAGUE will showcase Black Ops 4 on the day immediately following its release.
The action-packed exhibition – Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 x ELEAGUE CODNATION Challenge for Vets – will be held at ELEAGUE Arena in Atlanta, Saturday, Oct. 13, beginning at 5 p.m. ET, with live coverage presented on Twitch. The event will feature 12 popular influencers from the Call of Duty community.
Players will form three teams of five and face off in several Black Ops 4 multiplayer games, highlighted by the anticipated “Blackout” battle royale mode. Each team will consist of a mix of community figures and professional Call of Duty players, with casters as captains.
Additionally, fans will be able to contribute to the Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit organization that seeks to help veterans find high-quality careers, directly via the Twitch stream.
ELEAGUE will capture the event’s top moments for a three-part feature series premiering Friday, Oct. 26, at 11 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
Fans are invited to join the live studio audience at ELEAGUE Arena in Atlanta by obtaining free tickets here. On-site amenities at Turner Studios will include a game-focused fan experience and free concessions.
