Today, Amazon Prime Gaming announced Prime Gaming’s Ultimate Showdown, a one-of-a-kind variety game tournament that sets out to find the ultimate all-around gamer.

Featuring a multitude of game genres—including first-person and team-based shooters, MMOs, asymmetrical survivals, and MOBA games—Prime Gaming’s Ultimate Showdown will consist of four community-focused pre-qualifier rounds in Seattle, Amsterdam, Germany, and Japan. During the qualifiers, contestants will not only compete for prizes and prove they have what it takes to win the Ultimate Showdown, but will help raise awareness and money for charities benefiting communities in need. The top five (5) players from each event will secure a slot in the Grand Finale, happening live at TwitchCon in San Diego. Finalists will have the chance to play alongside pro gaming creators, to help them win a grand prize of $50,000!
