The push will make it much easier for the average gamer to find and play a competitive game across multiple titles, as explained by the announcement on Major Nelson's blog. You can search for an open tournament, join a match, and converse with your opponent to decide details and connect with one another--all through the app right on the console.

Many eSports services require the use of a full-fledged website, meaning you need to log in on your computer to find and set up a match before playing it on console. The results of competitive matches often must be reported on the site of whatever league you're playing in, as well, but the ESL app will allow you to input the results directly on the same system.

These will award prizes to winners--keep an eye out for news on qualifiers and tournaments for your preferred games. The app is available today on the Xbox One Store
