Some well-known UK esports organisations are swapping their digital weapons for actual paintball guns in a unique tournament which is taking place right now (12pm, August 28th 2021).
UK gaming energy drink brand, Beyond NRG, has created a new league for esports teams to compete physically – The Beyond NRG UK Paintball Open, hosted by CPPS.
The driving force behind this is to bring together the biggest names in UK esports for a day out of their traditional gaming studios.
The selection of teams competing in the Paintball Open wouldn’t naturally meet in-game, due to competing in different titles and leagues. So this exclusive invite-only tournament series allows esports teams to compete 5v5 IRL.
