LG Electronics (LG) will name the best player of the popular free-to-play multiplayer tactical first-person shooter (FPS) from Riot Games, Valorant, at the first ever LG UltraGear FACE-OFF tournament.
The esport event kicks off on October 3 at 16:00 (EDT) with the matchups airing live on LG’s official Twitch channel (www.twitch.tv/ultrageargaming).
Since its launch earlier this year, Riot Games’ follow-up to the insanely popular League of Legends has generated a huge following due to its addictive team play, earning the game a historical first day, breaking Twitch viewership records with 34 million hours-watched in a single day and second only to the 2019 League of Legends World Championship Finals in concurrent viewership.
Officially released in June 2020, Riot Games’ Valorant pits teams of five against one another in a frenetic battle that requires both skill and strategy. A total of 20 popular gamers – each specializing in one particular multiplayer FPS genre including Overwatch (shooter), Fortnite (survival), Call of Duty and CS:GO (tactical) – will compete for the title of Valorant winner.
LG UltraGearTM FACE-OFF gives the world’s best FPS players a platform to showcase their skills while also demonstrating the speed, responsiveness and spectacular picture quality of LG’s premium monitor.
Helping the competitors to perform at the highest level will be the world’s first 4K 1 millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) 1 IPS gaming monitor, LG UltraGear model 27GN950.
