Telus has today announced the return of its second annual Esports Series, a four-week-long multi-tiered gaming contest for Canadians age 15 and up, with more than $80,000 in gaming prizes to be won.
Powered by Nanoleaf, the Telus Esports Series returns with two game features: Rocket League on May 21, a free-to-play, family-friendly sports-based video game, and Apex Legends on June 25, a free-to-play battle royale game.
Starting with Rocket League on May 21, players can join one of four divisions from casual to competitive skill levels. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams of each division, and all players will have the opportunity to win prizes by participating in the online community throughout the tournament.
