Allied Esports’ two 18-wheel mobile gaming arenas, the HyperX Esports Trucks, will make appearances at four premier esports entertainment festivals in North America and Europe to close the month of November.
The HyperX Esports Truck is an 80 ft. long 35-ton semi-tractor-trailer that opens hydraulically into a full-fledged competition stage and broadcast truck. This state-of-the-art mobile arena is equipped with a live streaming production booth, VIP lounge and more. The truck is currently touring North America bringing live esports entertainment to events across the country.
Following an appearance last weekend at Post Malone’s annual Posty Fest at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex., where the North American HyperX Esports Truck hosted a Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare tournament, the mobile arena will make its way to Ontario Mills in Ontario, Calif. on Nov. 9-10 for the California Regional Final and Festival of the Simon Cup, a national amateur esports tournament featuring Fortnite. The truck will welcome 100 of the top Los Angeles-area Fortnite players as they compete for a $10,000 shopping spree and a chance to participate in the Simon Cup Grand Final at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas where the overall winner will receive a $50,000 shopping spree.
The truck will then head to Atlanta, Ga., for DreamHack Atlanta 2019 at the Georgia World Congress Center Nov. 15-17 where it will host a special event and gameplay with Alienware. This will be the mobile arena’s second DreamHack appearance in 2019 after three days at DreamHack Dallas in May. In total, the North American truck has been featured at 15 major events in 2019, including Super Bowl LIII, CES, WonderCon, KAABOO Texas, E3 and VidCon.
“2019 has been a monumental year for the HyperX Esports Truck with stops at some of the biggest gaming, entertainment and lifestyle events on two continents,” said Jud Hannigan, CEO of Allied Esports. “We’re looking forward to the rest of the year and 2020 as we continue to deliver to fans and players of all skill levels one of the most unique gaming experiences in the industry.”
In Europe, the HyperX Esports Truck recently hosted the finals of the 2019 Game Fuel League at MCM Comic Con London where the winner of the PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG) competition took home a 550-pound, 45-mile-per-hour top speed, street-legal Mountain Dew®-branded beach buggy based on the popular in-game vehicle. The Game Fuel League Finals were a culmination of two months of online qualifiers across nine European nations, including the UK, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Switzerland, that were produced and broadcast from Allied Esports’ HyperX Esports Studio in Hamburg.
The truck will now head to Gamevention 2019 in its hometown of Hamburg, Germany, on Nov. 23-24 where the vehicle will be the main stage for competition and content for amateur and professional players throughout the weekend featuring an assortment of games and formats, including “Beat the Pro,” “King of the Hill” and showmatches. Gamevention, which expects more than 10,000 visitors, is the first gaming exhibition in Hamburg.
The European truck will round out November with a stop at DreamHack Winter 2019 in Jönköping, Sweden, where it will host a variety of gaming competitions. Previously in 2019, the European HyperX Esports Truck made appearances at a number of high-profile events, including TwitchCon, Wacken Open Air, Dokomi, EGX and gamescom.
If you haven’t been able to check out the HyperX Esports Truck, I highly recommend taking the opportunity if it presents itself. The esports facilities done by HyperX and Allied Esports are top notch gaming experiences.
