Ubisoft is set to launch The Next Level, which is the company's foray into the world of eSports competitions.

The video above is an announcement trailer that hypes up the competition. Ubisoft plans to run The Next Level at several fan-favorite events such as PAX, PAX East, E3, San Diego Comic Con, New York Comic Con and a whole lot more.

Participants can play at these events or compete online from the comfort of their own couches. Games to be featured in the decathlon-styled competition include Just Dance 2014, The Crew, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Trials Evolution, Rayman Legends, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, and the Assassin's Creed series.

Gamers can compete for swag, scholarships, trips to events and the chance to meet the developers of the games.
