Activision has been quite serious about its jump into eSports, especially in light of its recent acquisition of Major League Gaming. And of course, there's the formation of the Call of Duty World League, where $3 million will be on the line.

The Call of Duty: World League Pro Division is set to kick off later today in the Australia/New Zealand region, but those in North America and Europe won't have to wait much longer. Their first stage of competition begins tomorrow. The competition will run for 11 weeks, with teams of four doing battle online on Tuesdays and Wednesday in a Best of Five format on Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Those that have played Black Ops III will recognize a multiplayer mode dedicated to events such as this, with rules that include setting bans for specific Specialists and weapons.

The North American region will be represented by compLexity Gaming, Counter Logic Gaming, Dream Team, FaZe Clan, H2K Gaming, Luminosity Gaming, OpTic Gaming, Question Mark, Rise Nation, Team eLevate, Team EnVyUs, and Team Kaliber. Full profiles on each of the teams competing can be found on the Call of Duty eSports website, as well as in the video below. Clint "Maven" Evans, Matt "MrX" Morello, John "Revan" Boble, and Jack "Courage" Dunlop will call the action here in North America.

The Call of Duty World League can be seen in its entirety on the aforementioned CoD eSports site or on the Call of Duty Twitch channel.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
