EVO is finally back with its first full-scale, in-person event since 2019 and in this article, we break down the EVO 2022 schedule as well as where it’ll all be streamed so you don’t miss any of the excitement!

When Is EVO 2022?

The Evolution Championship Series, or simply EVO, has been the biggest tournament in the world for the FGC for decades. The event has hosted a wide range of fighting games and every year, EVO provides exciting matches that even non-fighting game players get hyped over. As you can guess, EVO was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, EVO turned to online events and these weren’t bad but clearly did not have the same impact as the in-person events did.

Fortunately, the long wait is over, and in just a couple of days, we’ll see EVO’s first full-scale tournament since EVO 2019. If you’re excited for EVO but aren’t in the loop, then don’t worry. We got your back here at 9to5Gamers with this handy article breaking down EVO 2022’s schedule and everything else you need to know!

This year it’s going to be a 3-day event taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada, from August 5th until 7th.

What Games Are On?

As usual for EVO, the tournament features a main lineup of 9 titles. These include SFV, Guilty Gear Strive, MK11, Tekken 7, KOF15, Melty Blood, DBFZ, GBFV, and Skullgirls. Along with those 9 main titles, EVO has partnered with 956 Productions to host the Vortex Gallery. The Vortex Gallery will run side tournaments for a crazy amount of 52 different fighting games. On top of that Multiversus came as a late addition to the event with a $100,000 prize pool!
