GamerJi, one of the fastest-growing Esports tournament platforms, announces the launch of India’s biggest Esports event ‘GamerJi Community Challenge 2.0’ in partnership with Loco as an exclusive live streaming partner for the tournament.

Founded in 2019 by gaming expert and serial entrepreneur Soham Thacker, GamerJi is India’s leading Esports tournament platform where users can play tournaments of their favorite games, host matches, communicate, share content & win prizes.

GamerJi Community Challenge 2.0 (GCC 2.0), features a prize pool of Rs 3,00,000 and consists of some of the most popular multiplayer games which include Clash Royale, Call of Duty Mobile, FIFA Mobile, WCC3 and Ludo. The limited-time event begins on June 27th and will see over 30,000 players compete in a number of rounds with each qualifier advancing to the finals, which will be held on 10th and 11th July.

Soham Thacker, founder, GamerJi, says, “We believe in the growth story of Esports in India and focus on bridging the gap between amateur to professional level gamers through our tournaments. GCC 2.0 tournament has seen one of the highest participation ever for a single event. GamerJi understands that aspiring gamers need exposure and recognition to advance in their Esports careers. Competitive gaming platforms like ours provide a transitional area for potential Esports athletes, something that the Indian gaming industry needs to accelerate its growth. GCC, a property created by GamerJi will see at least 2 more such large scale tournaments by the year end. GamerJi will continue to launch such tournaments to evangelise the Esports ecosystem in India and continue to provide a fair, fun and engaging platform to amateur gamers.”

GamerJi has over 1.3 million users on its app and has conducted over 22,000 matches. The tournament registration is free and can be done via the GamerJi App, available on the App Store and Google Play Store.

GCC 2.0 has witnessed one of the highest participation numbers under a single event, with 30,000 registrations and counting, surpassing GCC 1.0. Throughout the event, it aims to reach over 10 million gaming influencers. The tournament will be moderated by the GamerJi team to ensure fair play, and multiple winners will be awarded cash prizes at the conclusion of the tournament.

GamerJi is also aggressively elevating the inter-college Esports landscape in the country with its college gaming league – CGL  which has associated with more than 100 college teams since March 2021. CGL tournaments held in Apr 2021 saw more than 50 colleges compete including  BITS – Pilani,  Symbiosis Pune, Delhi university and nineteen IITs amongst others.

GamerJi plans to host three inter-college CGL tournaments and two GamerJi Community Challenge – GCC by this year-end.

The Indian gaming community is seeing one of the best growth phases as both amateurs and pros continue to stay indoors and naturally opt to hone their online gaming skills. According to a report by Deloitte India, the online gaming industry in India is expected to reach $2.8 billion by 2022. GamerJi addresses aspiring gamers in India to provide them with evolving gaming possibilities and position India as a global leader in Esports.

Leading Indian game developer SuperGaming has revealed the first gameplay trailer for its upcoming Indo-Futuristic battle royale Indus to celebrate India’s Republic Day of January 26, 2023.

To launch the gameplay trailer, the company released a series of high-impact takeovers across the biggest locations in London. This is in line with SuperGaming’s vision of putting India on the global gaming map much like its previous Indus trailer launch at New York’s Times Square to mark India’s Independence Day of August 15, 2022.

“As we’ve been making Indus and seeing its gameplay evolve over the year, we wanted to share it with the rest of the world,” says SuperGaming co-founder and CEO Roby John. “This gameplay trailer is for the Indus community the world over that may not have been able to play it with us and to show off the true scale of battle royale that we want you to have when the game is out.”

The trailer entices players to discover, loot, and win on Virlok — the game’s island map, all while showcasing Indus’ weapons, Paragons (the game’s character skins), and traversal. It also highlights multiple locations and firefights with an intent of showing the scope and size of the battle royale experience SuperGaming aims to provide.

In the run up to Indus’ release date, SuperGaming will have multiple community playtests through the year.
