The fighting games scene is evolving, and more support from publishers flow to their communities by organizing global competitions. ARC World Tour is one such initiative. ARC System Works publishes three popular fighting games, and each one of them will have a pro circuit this year. 

Pro circuits in Guilty Gear -Strive-, Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising and Under Night in-Birth: Sys: Celes will have a similar structure. Different events across the globe award points to the players. The best of the best will be invited to the final tournament somewhere in the first half of 2025.

The champions of the GGST and GBVSR final tournaments will receive $50,000. The winner of the UNI2 tournament will earn $20,000. The former two events will have 16 slots, and the latter will have only 8.

To reach the ARC World Tour finals, you will need to either win a platinum-tier event or score most of the points. All the tier-1 global events are added to the ARC World Tour 2024, including EVO Japan, UFA, CEO, EVO and Frosty Faustings. This season is going to be long and entertaining.
