There will be a World Cup tournament with a prize pool of at least $500,000 for the mobile MOBA Arena of Valor in July. An insider at Tencent told Compete that this is the start of a larger roll-out of tournaments, and that teams like Liquid and Vitality will be in attendance.
With more than 200 million monthly active players in China, Tencent’s competitive multiplayer game Arena of Valor (AKA Kings of Glory and Strike of Kings) is one of the most popular and profitable mobile games in the world. Today it launched in North America on iOS and Android. Who’s playing?
Now that it’s done Razer-ing the hell out of PC and console gaming, Razer is turning its attention to mobile. Launching on November 17, the $700 Razer Phone features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, 8 gigabytes of RAM and the world’s first 120 Hz “UltraMotion” display. Candy Crush is going to run so well on this.
