The programme aims to support the title’s growing global ecosystem and expand its outreach with the support of esports organisations.

To kick off Honor of Kings’ partnership programme, Level Infinite has announced five teams participating in the programme will receive direct invitations to compete in Season 2 of the Honor of Kings Invitational. Southeast Asia’s REX REGUM QEON, South America’s ISURUS and Turkey’s FUT Esports have been confirmed with the final two teams being announced on June 11th and 12th respectively.

According to a release, the full list of partner teams will be unveiled during the Gamescom LATAM event taking place from June 26th to 30th in São Paulo, Brazil. The list will feature teams from across Europe, the Americas and Asia.

Alongside gaining direct invites to ‘priority’ tournaments, partner teams will also be given promotional support from official Honor of Kings social media channels.

Honor of Kings’ global esports expansion kickstarted in January 2024, thanks to $15m (~£11.8m) in investment to host more tournaments and to assist with the growth of the game.

The Honor of Kings esports circuit shows no sign of slowing down. In May 2024, Level Infinite named Kuala Lumpur as the host city for the Honor of Kings Invitational Season 2 along with a $300,000 (~£236,121) prize pool.

James Yang, Senior director of Level Infinite global esports centre, spoke on the news: “The Honor of Kings Partnership Program is a win-win way for us to support organisations that have shown a deep commitment to supporting the growth of Honor of Kings.

“Esports organizations are an invaluable part of the equation to grow Honor of Kings around the globe. With this programme, we’re recognising their value with fans, and will work closely with the partners to collaborate on exciting Honor of Kings esports content.”
