TwitchCon is up and running all this weekend, and we have already seen some intense action throughout the past couple of days, with a particular highlight being the event’s Doritos Bowl competition. Taking place at the San Jose Convention Center, the event saw four of the most renowned gamers taking their teams into Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode, with a $250,000 prize pool at stake.
Competitive gaming looks to have a heavy influence on next week’s TwitchCon event, which is set to take place on 26-28 October in San Jose, USA.
In recent years, we have seen the Call of Duty franchise making the headlines for better or for worse, particularly the latter when it comes to the likes of Advanced and Infinite Warfare. The last entry of WW2 was perhaps more of a case of playing it safe by returning to a familiar and popular setting for fans of the series, though Treyarch have now thrown caution to the wind and taken a massive gamble of their own with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Thankfully, it has paid off.
Dylan “Madcat” Daly has given an idea of who he will be heading into the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season with later this year. The Epsilon Hall of Famer had revealed last month that his search had begun to find a team, and looks to be being joined by Joshua-Lee ‘Joshh’ Sheppard, Alex ‘Alexx’ Carpenter, David ‘Dqvee’ Davies, and Adam ‘Peatie’ Peate.
The Battle Royale genre took a massive surge into the mainstream over the past year, and burst its way onto the eSports scene seemingly like no other that has been seen in quite a while now. The ongoing debate of who reigns supreme over said genre, hotly contested by both Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, still dominates headlines today, though each title has made their own significant impact on the competitive gaming stage.
