Three new Overwatch Contenders live events have been announced for 2019.

The first will take place in China towards the end of May, the second in Europe or Americas at the start of June, while the third will be held in October with the location still to be determined.

According to a blog post announcing the new showcase events, the timings have been designed to provide maximum visibility to up-and-coming players while the premiere Overwatch League is enjoying its mid-year break.

The Pacific Showdown will feature the best Contender teams from Australia, China, Korea and the Pacific taking part in a double-elimination bracket between 24th and 26th May.

The top placing team from the Australia and Pacific regions will be invited to this first event, while the top two teams from China and Korea will be involved.

The same format will apply for the Atlantic Showdown - scheduled for 31st May to June 2nd - but will feature the best team from South America, the top three teams from North America, and the two best performers from Europe.

Finally, the less fleshed-out Gauntlet event will take place between the 10th and 13th October. There'll be a group stage leading into a double elimination round, with teams invited based on their performance in the earlier Atlantic and Pacific Showdown events.

Although streaming details have yet to be confirmed for this series of clashes, it's highly likely that you'll be able to follow at least some of the action on the official Overwatch Contenders Twitch stream.

We'll have more details on May's opening event nearer the time, so check the homepage for updated details around then.
