The competition is set to kick off this coming weekend
Shadow Gaming’s Verdun Tournament has officially opened its registration period as announced by its parent company, Sports Venues of Florida, Inc. Shadow Gaming has been growing at a fast pace in the global eSports market, and it just announced that a new edition of its tournament will take place this Saturday, July 25, 2020, at 2:00 PM EST.
The eSports operator is seeking the best Verdun players from the Europe and North America to join.
This eSports tournament comes with $250 for the first place, $150 for second and $100 for third place. In addition to that, gamers who register for the event will all get Shadow Gaming credits, with additional options to earn more. Verdun is a squad-based multiplayer first-person shooter video game that takes place in the times of the World War I. The game was released back in 2015 on Steam after being on Steam Early Access for more than a year. It is inspired in the 1916 Battle of Verdun in France, so it comes with equipment and weapons that were actually used during World War I – historically accurate to this battle – and includes authentic uniforms, injury and gore modeling and even maps that are based on the actual battlefields that were part of this battle.
The organization of the eSports league for Shadow Gaming’s Verdun Tournament is in the hands of the Digital Gaming League, which was the first tournament organizer to commit to working with Shadow Gaming to launch an eSports league. “The foundation of our business model and our plan for growth is based in working with organizers like The DGL that have the experience and knowledge that gamers trust to bring events week after week under auspices of Shadow Gaming,” said Shadow Gaming president Luis A. Arce.
