Esports venue company Helix eSports has established a partnership with gaming peripherals company Razer.
Razer will serve as the exclusive peripherals partner for the company, providing products for its gaming facilities across North America.
Razer will roll out its products in the gaming centres on May 23rd alongside the opening of Helix eSports’ Patriot Place location, which was originally set to open in January. The complex will also act as a training facility for the Boston Uprising Overwatch League franchise.
Seeson Mahathavorn, Senior Global Esports Marketing Manager at Razer, commented on the deal in a release: “At Razer, we look for every opportunity to bring communities together to play and compete with one another on our best-in-class hardware. We are excited to work with Helix eSports to help create the most robust gaming centers in the world and bring players together in new ways under the banner of competition.”
Alongside providing peripherals, Razer will also support tournaments hosted by Helix eSports. The first Razer-supported project is the ‘Wounded Warrior Project Stream to Serve: COD Tournament II,’ which is scheduled for May 16th.
Murphy Vandervelde, CEO of Helix eSports, added: “Our mission at Helix eSports is to create an exceptional esports experience for all players by providing best in class gaming centers that create social hubs and level the playing field for competition. We believe we can create the best possible guest experience by offering all Helix customers our uniform, high-end gaming equipment, and Razer is a critical differentiator in elevating our offerings over the competition.”
Esports Insider says: Razer is no stranger to supporting esports at all levels and having its products available at each of Helix eSports’ facilities enables all attendees to use quality equipment, which is undoubtedly a positive.
