Sunday Finals Schedule for #EVO2018 has been published
Over 11,000 players have signed up to participate in brackets supporting an eight-game lineup at Evolution 2018, the annual celebration of the fighting game genre which is now housed every year at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
EVO lasts for the duration of a three-day weekend each year. The first two days are dedicated to progressing players through a series of pools leading up to the finals of their game. Due to time constraints, some of the tournaments are concluded at a time period earlier than Sunday, whereas the remainder of the lineup is featured atop a glorious stage in the shape of the EVO logo, with each player's characters flashing across the floor.
Today, Joey "MrWiz" Cuellar has published an update announcing which titles will have the privilege of closing out the event on Sunday, August 5th. The order they are listed in will be the order in which they are played out.
This list leaves out Injustice 2, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle and Smash Wii-U, meaning that all three of those titles will conclude their EVO lifespan either Friday or Saturday. That much has yet to be specified by Mr Wizard, but we expect additional updates concerning the event schedule to drop later this week or next week.
EVO 2018 takes place on August 3-5, 2018. If you did not register before the end of last week, spectators will be able to purchase event passes on-site.
While the names of players participating at EVO have yet to be published, the numbers for each game have already gone live. See below to learn how much you can expect in the way of competition from this year's lineup.
Six out of eight of the games featured at EVO this year have over a thousand players each, with DBFZ and Street Fighter V leading off the lineup at around 2,500 entrants each. Dragonball FighterZ gets a huge nod for its phenomenal turnout, as this year marks its debut appearance at EVO, whereas Street Fighter continues to deliver on numbers despite the decline from its 5,000-player turnout in 2016.
It's going to be the most packed EVO event yet. If you're going to EVO yourself and are excited for what is to come, let us know in your Twitter replies!
