The announcement brings the total prize pool for the year to $2.25 million as the event will bring the curtain down on the season after seven regular tournaments, each one with $250,000 on the line.
The BLAST Pro Series Global Final, to be held at an as-yet undisclosed location in December, will feature the four highest scoring teams according to a point system introduced by BLAST this year.
The event will feature a single-elimination, best-of-three format, with the winning side earning $350,000 and the title of BLAST Pro Series season champion.
