Esports tournament platform Challengermode has entered a partnership with AI-powered video platform Reely.
As a result of the deal, the platform will provide automated video content for players and tournament organisers using the platform.
According to a release, the agreement is part of Challengermode’s intentions to ‘make esports accessible to everyone’. Reely analyses streaming content in real-time before generating branded short-form content for a number of titles including Rocket League, Call of Duty: Warzone and VALORANT.
Philip Hubner, Chief Business Development Officer at Challengermode, spoke on the deal: “Reely’s tech gives us an incredible opportunity to amplify tournaments on our platform. It’s a highly-effective way for all the national, collegiate, and corporate leagues hosted on Challengermode to further their reach while giving our brand and studio partners more ways to engage with players.”
The platform’s partnership with Reely is Challngermode’s third partnership in 2022. February saw the platform secure a four-year deal with South Asian organisation NODWIN Gaming. Earlier in the year, the platform also teamed up Yup.gg to expand its offerings into Latin America.
Daniel Evans, CEO of Reely, added: “We are excited to build this relationship with Challengermode to further scale our technology and services in competitive gaming. We started as a tool for sports content and have quickly evolved into esports due to the obvious need for content optimisation.
“Both companies see the power of short-form content and are eager to put this power into the hands of every player.”
Esports Insider says: The ability for players and tournament organisers to create highlights quickly is a great way for them to grow brands. With Challengermode hosting a wealth of tournaments across a range of games, the partnership with Reely will benefit those looking to create short-form content with ease.
