Indian esports organisation S8UL has announced a two-day esports and gaming event, called the S8UL Gaming Fest. The event will take place in Bangalore, India on July 29th and 30th.

The event is the first time an Indian esports organisation is creating an in-person festival. S8UL is a prominent Indian esports brand with teams in Battlegrounds Mobile: India and VALORANT. The company notably won the award for the Best Content Group of the Year at the 2022 Esports Awards and fields a large roster of content creators and influencers.

Interestingly, the organisation has recently inked a partnership with game developer KRAFTON to support the launch of a new mobile game, called Road To Valor: Empires. S8UL has agreed to promote the game through its content creators in a move that is not often seen in esports.

The event itself will be more focused on gaming culture than just esports, according to the company. This means that there will be a large number of activations and content creator-related events happening during the Gaming Fest, together with showcases of new Intel and Lenovo products, a cosplay competition, and daily tournaments in VALORANT, FIFA 23 and Mortal Kombat.

Additionally, the organisers announced giveaways, merchandise capsules, meet and greets and more.

Lokesh Jain aka Goldy, Co-Founder & COO, S8UL, commented on the announcement: “We wanted to create a platform where gamers and fans alike could come together to experience the best of gaming. By hosting top streamers and organizing thrilling tournaments, we aim to inspire and entertain everyone who attends. It’s going to be an unforgettable experience,”
