The newly announced platform has been dubbed Xperia Mobile Gaming Arena and it’s open to players on Android and iOS devices. With the Xperia Mobile Gaming Arena, players will get the opportunity to compete against one another for prizes amounting to more than $10,000 allegedly.
If you’re looking to participate, all players have to do is to link their Major League Gaming and Gameloft accounts. After that, you can play a featured Xperia Mobile Gaming Arena title which is limited to Gameloft’s first-person shooter game, Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nations. After achieving your score, you will automatically be added to the arena’s leaderboard.
