Ubisoft announced at this year’s Gamescom that the Just Dance World Cup will be returning for the third time. The Just Dance World Cup is part of the eSports World Convention (ESWC) which organizes esports competitions and tournaments around the world. Just Dance’s competition will be open to players across the globe and will begin with the release of Just Dance 2017 on October 25th.
Those interested in trying out may need to travel a ways in order to compete in the qualifying matches. Three live events will be held in Brazil, France, and Germany, and one lucky winner from each will move on to the finals in Paris, France. However, if showing up in person is out of the question, players can also secure a spot by going for the high score in Just Dance 2017’s World Dance Floor mode. Between November 6th and January 8th, Ubisoft will be pulling the top-scoring players from thirteen different countries to compete in the finals. Just be sure to check whether or not your country is eligible to participate here!
Finals will be held from February 17th to the 19th. Only seventeen players will make it to the World Cup, and when they do they’ll be facing off against the champion of both 2014 and 2015’s games, Diegho San.
