ESL Arena has announced it will be coming to PAX Australia hosting “one of Australia’s largest ever eSports events.”
The arena will feature three titles during PAX Australia where attendees can watch an array of eSports action.
The first game to be announced for ESL Arena is the third-person MOBA title SMITE by Hi-Rez Studios. With the Oceania Regional Championship finals concluding on Saturday, spectators can witness competing teams battle it out for the $50,000 Cash Prize Pool and a spot in the SMITE 2016 World Championships in Atlanta, USA.
“eSports has grown to become such a massive cornerstone of the gaming community over the last decade, it only made sense that it would eventually become a prominent part of PAX Aus,” said Guy Blomberg, PAX Content and Community Manager.
“It makes great sense to bring the ESL Arena to such a prestigious gaming event as PAX Aus. This opportunity allows us to level up the current eSports offering and truly put our region on the map.” said Nick Vanzetti, Managing Director at ACL.
PAX Australia will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 30 October to 1 November, 2015
