We’re thrilled to reveal the VR Challenger League presented by Intel and Oculus, a brand new competitive VR gaming league featuring two exciting VR titles – “The Unspoken” and “Echo Arena”. The competition will feature a prize pool of over $200,000 and includes multiple stops at key esports events around the world, eventually concluding with the grand finals in 2018.
You’ll be able to qualify for the offline events by taking part in the online competitions which are set to start on July 12th on ESL Play. On top of the VR Challenger League qualifiers, you’ll also be able to challenge yourself in our weekly ESL Play cups, where you can compete for weekly points and prize money. Create an ESL Play account today so that you’ll be prepared once we announce the qualifier details and weekly cups in the near future.
Insomniac’s The Unspoken will lead players into a world of spellcasting where they face up against opposing mages in dynamic 1v1 duels. Cast powerful spells and utilize the destructible environment to gain an advantage over your opponents on your way to becoming an unrivaled arch-mage. You can find more insights into the classes, spells and maps on the official website.
The second title of the VR Challenger League will be Echo Arena, Ready At Dawn Studios’ face-paced multiplayer action title set in outer space. The game will be released on July 20th as a free download for all Oculus Rift owners and you can keep an eye on new gameplay reveals as they become available on their website.
