The third and final game title in the inaugural Gfinity Elite Series will be Rocket League.
The Psyonix title will join Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Street Fighter V for the UK’s showpiece esports event which is designed to give amateur gamers the chance to make it as a professional. Would be stars can register now for the initial Gfinity Challenger Series where they must rack up ‘G-Points’ to qualify for the Elite Draft and the opportunity to play in the Gfinity Elite Series.
As expected Gfinity has delivered another excellent promotional video for the Rocket League addition…
The choice of Rocket League is well timed with the RLCS Season 3 underway right; the past weekend’s action resulted in The Leftovers unbeaten and sitting pretty at the top of the EU table.
The Gfinity Challenger Series will open on 27th March 2017 and run for five weeks. The Elite Series will commence on 26th May 2017 and run for 10 weeks, taking place at the Gfinity Arena in London.
Both of these competitions are open to all gamers worldwide though one main aim is to develop the grassroots of British esports.
Neville Upton, CEO, Gfinity plc said: “Gfinity has always been about the gamers and the signing of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Street Fighter V and Rocket League will guarantee the very best action and entertainment for those playing and watching the Elite Series. There is tremendous, world-class competitive gaming talent in the UK, and the Gfinity Elite Series is going to provide the platform for this talent to showcase their skills to the world.
“We want more gamers playing harder and better at the top level to showcase new home-grown talent to existing pro teams and ultimately pave the way for more UK pro teams being formed that can go on and compete at global events. The Gfinity Elite Series brings world-class-level competition to the UK and is set to be the pinnacle eSports event in the UK.”
Esports Insider says: We’ll be entering an official ESI team in for the Challenger Series for Rocket League. With Gfinity just round the corner from our HQ, we’ll be on home turf for the Elite Series so best of luck to any challengers to our throne…
