GAME Launches UK e-Sports Gaming Tournament

By James O Malley on at

Highstreet retailer GAME has announced a new tournament to be held at its stores that will eventually crown "the ultimate gamer" - with the winner taking home a £5000 GAME gift card.

"The Great UK Game Off", as the tournament is being dubbed will kick off on 3rd August and after heats in store around the country, the final will be held on the main stage at Insomnia 56, the UK's largest gaming event in November.

If you want to take part, simply sign up at a participating store (see below) and you'll soon be taking part in a series of "Point Challenges" on games like FIFA 15, Forza 6, Mario Kart and Lego Jurassic World.

The winners of each heat will also have their name immortalised on the wall of their local store, and may even be featured on the GAME website. Runners-up prizes include Vue cinema tickets and 100 points for your GAME loyalty card.
