Some people argue that video games take as much skill and preparation as actual sports, hence the attraction for people to take part in the competitions that now offer millions in rewards. In light of this, we want to introduce everyone to the eGames International gaming tournament.

Set to debut this summer alongside the summer Olympic games in Rio, the eGames International gaming tournament will take place in every Olympic year, be it the summer or winter games, and will take place in the Olympic games host cities. That means after Rio we will get a tournament in Pyeongchang in 2018 and one in Tokyo in 2020.

In the years in between people can accept national qualifiers, making the games as equal as the sporty Olympic games. Open to gamers of all kinds aged 18 and over, gamers can expect to face some tough competitions from all over the world as they face the world to represent their countries.

In Brazil, the game will be show-cased with a two-day pop-up tournament and the event already has the backing of Britain, Canada, Brazil and the USA. Designed as a not-for-profit initiative, the schemes been set up with support from the UK government and with aims of “positively shaping the future of competitive eSports gaming”.

With Gold, Silver and Bronze medals on the line, will gamers be enticed to step away from prize pots for the chance to gain national recognition? With more details coming out this month and in May, we may see a list of the games that participating countries will be facing off against each other in.
