Cygames just released the world premiere of the new Shadowverse card game expansion called Wonderland Dreams. The new expansion is set to release on June 29, 2017.
Intel just took to the stage to talk about VR and the Core i9 processor. Intel is now the global provider for ESL in the back-end, front-end and for live-streaming. Intel is also sponsoring a deal in conjunction with Oculus to bring Echo-Arena to esports. The game will be free for users to try and play with release set for July 20th as long as you purchase Lone Echo for $34.99.
In Echo Arena—the fast-paced competitive multiplayer mode for Lone Echo—you’ll join a team of up to four other players and face off against the competition in a zero-gravity clash of robotic glory as you glide, boost, and punch your way to scoring goals in a breathtaking virtual arena. As a team sport, Echo Arena rewards players that work well together; with the incredible social expression offered by Touch, you’ll be able signal for a pass with a shout and a wave just as you naturally would, while throwing and catching the disc becomes a valuable skill to master. Even better though, Echo Arena is also full-contact sport: make a fist and use a swift punch to an opponent’s head to stun them, or grab onto another player’s back and catch a ride down-field. And of course, after you score a goal you can flaunt it with your own victory dance.
The VR Challenge League will bring the top players from Echo Arena and The Unspoken VR to Poland in 2018 where they’ll be going face to face to see who the best VR esports player is.
