EStars has announced Turtle Beach as its exclusive headset partner for the upcoming EStars featuring Fortnite.
The Fortnite tournament series kicks off on January 4 in Glasgow at the Celtic Park. Open to players of all levels, EStars featuring Fortnite will visit nine cities in the UK and Ireland before the grand final on March 31 at the Stamford Bridge in London.
Julian Woods, Managing Director at Turtle Beach Europe said: “Our mission is to help gamers play their best at every level and to provide opportunities for them to excel through precision audio. We’re extremely excited to be part of one of the biggest grassroots esports tournament to hit the UK and Ireland.”
Turtle Beach is providing the headsets for the players taking part in the tournament
The players will use the Turtle Beach peripherals while they compete using either Xbox One or PlayStation 4. The top nine from each city will receive an invitation for the grand final in London. The winner will receive a cash price of £25,000.
Maeve Finnegan of EStars said: “We are delighted to have Turtle Beach on board, providing their industry-leading, award-winning gaming headsets for our upcoming tournament. We want to deliver the ultimate gaming experience and we believe Turtle Beach will help us to achieve this.”
EStars featuring Fortnite starts on January 4 at the Celtic Park in Glasgow. Tickets for the event are available now.
Esports Insider says: Turtle Beach are known to be amongst the leading headset providers for console esports and thus this partnership makes a lot of sense. All contestants across the UK & Ireland will get to use the premium headsets as they look to outwit and outfox the other players dropping into Fortnite lobbies with them. It’s not long now until the EStars action gets underway up in Glasgow & we’re looking forward to seeing who comes out on top.
