Action-packed anime MOBA gears up for next competitive tournament

Following the success of December’s Global Showmatch in Busan, Nimble Neuron is excited to reveal the next major event on the Eternal Return calendar to kick off 2024: the Eternal Return Challengers Series! Players from around the world will get a chance to win it all as they fight for eternal glory in one of the genre’s most competitive esports tournaments.

The ERCS will take over from the Lumia Marathon event with the first round of the North America preliminary group stages starting this week on January 13. During the ERCS, 16 teams will battle it out for their share of $1,800, with a bounty of in-game currency also up for grabs. 

Every week, two blocks of four teams will merge, forming two eight-team squad lobbies. Each lobby will compete in 5 games, and team points will be allocated based on their placements.

The top two teams to emerge victorious will then proceed to the Grand Final on February 3, going head to head in a decisive showdown staged over unlimited rounds until a point cap is achieved to see who will be crowned the winner of the NA series. The winners will take home an incredible $1,000, as well as 2,400 NP (in-game currency).

Eternal Return players outside the NA region will also have their chance to compete in the Challengers Series. Registrations for both the South America and Europe competitions will be open from January 31 to February 6 with the SA main event taking place on February 10 at 7 PM (BRT) / 10 PM (UTC) , followed by the EU main event on February 11 at 7PM (CET) / 6PM (UTC).

Eternal Return continues to go from strength to strength since leaving early access last year, and currently has a “Mostly Positive” rating on Steam across more than 50,000 user reviews. Splicing together the survival, MOBA, and battle royale genres, Nimble Neuron’s free-to-play smash hit boasts more than 70 unique playable characters and a striking anime art style. 

Eternal Return is available to download and play on PC via Steam.
