Evo 2015’s Mortal Kombat X prize pool will be boosted with an additional $50,000 according to a brand new announcement from Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios. The largest fighting game tournament in the world joins the likes of Combo Breaker and Community Effort Orlando in a collection of events that have seen extra dosh thrown their way from sales of the game’s Blue Steel Sub-Zero skin.
With this, Evo 2015’s payouts continue to rise to ridiculous amounts. Capcom and Sony are prepared to provide $50,000 to Ultra Street Fighter IV finalists, while Microsoft and Iron Galaxy Studios have joined forces to send over $50,000 of their own.
As the largest fighting game tournament in the world, Evo regularly brings some of the most fierce competition to Las Vegas, but this year’s installment is sure to be even more exciting thanks to these ever-growing prize pools.
Evo 2015 is scheduled for July 17-19. More details can be found through the event’s official website.
