The games include Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, FIFA 20, Mortal Kombat 11, Warface, NBA, 2K20, SoulCalibur VI, and BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle.
Moreover, players will receive rewards for participating in the tournament. Similarly, there are also prizes for winners. The PS4 Open Series is open to everyone, allowing everyone to participate.
How will PS4 Open Series Work?
The tournament is sort of monthly, but it starts slowly. Every week, there will be an open weekly series and that will slowly progress to Monthly Final. Anyone who is left out of the tournament can participate again next month.
In addition, there will be new rewards every month. All players will get a PS4 Tournaments Theme and Avatar just for participating in the first tournament. Afterward, the value of rewards will only increase. Here are the details via PlayStation Blog

The most important and significant prize is $1,000 (USD) that will be given to the person who tops Month Finals. Players who win first place in weekly open qualifiers will also get $100. Lastly, the PS4 Open Series will be broadcasted by PlayStation. Sony also claims that really good players will also be invited to invitational tournaments.
