IPL4, a professional video game competition, is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Friday, April 6, 2012, at the Cosmopolitan. This image is from IPL3.

Las Vegas has long been a place for pro boxers and ultimate fights, but now it’s home to the big guns of “StarCraft II” and “League of Legends.”

Professional video game competition is coming to the Strip, as the Cosmopolitan hosts top players vying for $150,000 in prizes.

The IGN Pro League opens its IPL 4 tournament this weekend at the Chelsea.

“StarCraft 2” players will vie for $100,000 prize pool. The "League of Legends" slate offers a chance at $50,000.

Competition begins at 9 a.m. Friday, with finals set for 9 p.m. Sunday. It will include the finals for Korea’s Global StarCraft Team Leagues — the first time that the e-sports event has been held outside that country.

Tickets to the tournament are available.
