STARCRAFT® II AND HEARTHSTONE® AT DREAMHACK AUSTIN MAY 6–8!
DreamHack Austin is quickly approaching and we have already announced that Counter Strike:Global Offensive, Super Smash Brother Melee and Street Fighter V will be 3 of the main esport titles with tournaments at DreamHack Austin. Today we are excited to announce that Blizzard Entertainment’s StarCraft® II: Legacy of the Void™ and Hearthstone®: Heroes of Warcraft™ will be joining them!
CS:GO – Hearthstone – Smash – Street Fighter V – StarCraft II
Counter Strike is one of the oldest esport games around, and Counter Strike: Global Offensive has exploded in 2015 to become arguably the most popular esport in the western World. We are thrilled to announce that Counter Strike: Global Offensive will be featured at DreamHack Austin. The competition will feature international teams, as well the opportunity for up and coming teams to prove their mettle against them in the traditional DreamHack way!
StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void
Was there any doubt? StarCraft II was a mainstay during DreamHack’s international expansion, and to not include StarCraft II would feel nothing short of sacrilegious! DreamHack Austin will feature StarCraft II in a manner worthy of the DreamHack name, and after touring all around Europe with StarCraft II, we are thrilled to bring the game to DreamHack Austin.
Hearthstone is not only one of the most fun games around these days—it’s also one of the most widely played. Hearthstone’s fast-paced, simple-but-strategic gameplay is a perfect fit for DreamHack Austin, and is sure to be one of the most epic tournaments featured at the event. With the Grand Prix tournament series taking off at the DreamHack LAN festivals in Sweden, we’re looking forward to bringing that same Hearthstone excitement to DreamHack Austin!
Super Smash Brothers Melee
Smash is a game with one of the most awesome grass roots community out there, as we gear up to host the title and work with the community at both DreamHack London and DreamHack Winter in 2015, we are very excited to say that the first Smash tournament we host in 2016 will be at DreamHack Austin!
Street Fighter V
Street Fighter is one of the classic titles at DreamHack! Normally hosting some of the European stops in Europe, we’re excited to support the game on North American soil as well! Bringing different communities together is what DreamHack is all about, and we’re very excited to be putting Street Fighter under the same roof as StarCraft II, CS:GO, Smash and Hearthstone!
What would a DreamHack LAN be without BYOC competitions? While some of the above tournaments may feature BYOC tie-ins or qualifiers. We’ll also be hosting regular BYOC competitions for visitors in ANY title there is interest in! When you purchase your LAN seat be sure to let us know what game title interests you most, as the BYOC competitions will be defined by our visitors!
