SUPERCELL, the creator of the mobile shooter game Brawl Stars, has announced details surrounding the game’s 2024 competitive season.

The season will start in March 2024 and features a $2m (~£1.57m) prize pool, several mode changes and a slightly different format compared to 2023.

Brawl Stars is a multiplayer mobile hero shooter and battle arena game in which teams of three players compete against each other in different game modes. The game has proven to be popular around the world, with Brawl Stars also developing a modest esports scene amongst its fanbase. Last year, the competition’s World Finals recorded 273,000 peak viewers, according to Esports Charts.

The Brawl Stars Championship is the flagship competitive series for the game, featuring events in several main regions: North America, South America, China, APAC, and EMEA. The regions will remain the same, and the best-performing teams from each region will get a chance to participate in the Brawl Stars World Finals later this year.

The developers have announced that the season will start in early March 2024, with 12 total slots for the end-of-season event. Eight teams will enter the World Finals through the Brawl Stars Championship, and four will get a chance through the last-chance qualifiers. There have been some regional changes as well, with several regions such as East Asia, SEA, and India merging into APAC.

The prize pool for the season has more than doubled this year, with a total of $2m available to teams. Last year’s finals had a $750,000 prize pool. This is because SUPERCELL decided to release themed items this year, the sale of which will help boost the prize pool for the championship.

SUPERCELL also noted that the company will provide “additional support for third-party organisers”, and that players can “expect mode changes during 2024”, but did not clarify either of those statements
