Facebook Gaming is helping users make the most out of social distancing protocols with the early launch of its new tool, “Tournaments.”

According to the tech giant, the “Tournaments” tool aims to help people “stay connected through games” in the time of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The product provides major aid for gamers looking to create and/or join free-for-all competitions, with features such as registration, seeding, brackets, leaderboards and livestreaming.

Check out the newly-launched tool on the Facebook Gaming page.
