The tournament will culminate with a two-day Finals competition in Seattle, WA from Aug. 31 to Sept. 1, where players will battle to become the ultimate Spartan, with the top players receiving cash prizes.  Beginning today, players can register online for the “Halo 4” Global Championship by visiting and will be able to participate in two ways:
