DREAMHACK EXPANDS TO MOBILE ESPORTS LAUNCHING DREAMHACK MOBILE SERIES
FEATURING HIT MOBILE GAMES CLASH ROYALE AND BRAWL STARS
MARCH 7, 2019
DreamHack is going mobile, launching the DreamHack Mobile Series. A mobile esports tournament series in the games Clash Royale and Brawl Stars, with a collective prize pool of $20,000 per event. The DreamHack Mobile Series will premiere at DreamHack Dallas, May 31 – June 2, 2019, at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX, USA.
DreamHack, the premier gaming and digital lifestyle festival, as well as creators of esports tournament properties DreamHack Masters, DreamHack Open, DreamHack Fighting Game Championships, DreamHack Pro Circuit, DreamLeague, and more, is venturing into mobile esports with the creation of the DreamHack Mobile Series – a two-game tournament with a collective prize pool of $20,000 per event.
“At DreamHack we’ve always been optimistic towards mobile esports, but we have also been cautious to get involved“, said Michael Van Driel, Chief Product Officer at DreamHack AB, “We now believe the time is right to really jump in head first, and we believe that the DreamHack Mobile Series will bring the right mix of a professional esports experience alongside open competition that fits the ideal structure for mobile esports.”
Both DreamHack Mobile Series titles, Clash Royale and Brawl Stars, have seen huge success since their respective launch, with millions of downloads and a fan base that’s ever growing.
“Clash Royale and Brawl Stars are two fantastic titles which have all the ingredients for a successful esport, so we’re very excited to see the turnout at DreamHack Summer and DreamHack Dallas.”
This fast-paced 3v3 game has had a great reception since the first beta launch in 2017, growing into one of the most downloaded team-based multiplayer mobile games, making it a perfect fit for esports.
The DreamHack Mobile Series Brawl Stars tournament will consist of eight teams, with three players per team. Half of these teams will make it to the tournament by online qualifiers, with the other half qualifying on site. The main tournament is played using a single elimination bracket.
The prize pool for Brawl Stars is set to $15,000 per event, the distribution of the prize pool will be revealed at a later date.
Clash Royale is a real-time multiplayer game starring the Royales, your favourite Clash characters and much, much more. Always among the most popular games on App Store and Google Play, as well as a favorite of editors all over, this game is sure to create a buzz.
