Microsoft reveals massive six-part Gears of War eSports series

eSports!

Today during their Inside Xbox briefing (a concept that Sony just joined in on, on top of the existing Nintendo Direct presentations), Microsoft unveiled a new six-part documentary called ELeague Gears Summer Series: The Bonds and Betrayals of Brotherhood. It's actually part tournament, part drama; and will begin airing on TBS on June 14 at 11PM ET.

The idea is to follow "six of the most well-known players worldwide," chronicle their stories, and have a big finish at the ELeague Arena in Atlanta for the actual tournament. Microsoft promises to showcase players who have an "intense connection" to Gears, with an "unprecedented look" at their passion.

Interestingly enough part of the series will focus on the subjects' transition from Gears 4 into Gears 5, which could easily be the most fascinating bit. Witnessing pros go from game to game, having to pick up new tech and drop old habits along the way is one of the most unsung parts of the eSports phenomenon. That sentiment also applies to League of Legends and other MOBA patches that fundamentally shake things up or change/rework characters entirely, which could shake up the meta so severely that it could be considered an entirely new game.

I guess what I'm saying is, I'm jazzed to watch Bonds and Betrayals of Brotherhood. The more insight we have into the people who participate in eSports, the better.
