The addition of Rainbow Six to the upcoming DreamHack Montreal festival comes as a reply to all the fans and players who reached out asking for a tournament to be hosted in Canada, the country home to the studio that produces Rainbow Six: Siege. The format will stay the same with 12 Pro or Challenger teams being directly seeded to the main tournament meanwhile four teams will be fighting their way through the Bring Your Own Computer qualifier open for all LAN attendees of the event in traditional DreamHack spirit!
In addition to the usual DreamHack prizes, the champions of DreamHack Montreal will secure a guaranteed spot at the Six Invitational 2019, the most prestigious competitive Rainbow Six: Siege event of the year.
