Kaspersky and FACEIT join forces to empower gamers
When purchasing Kaspersky Internet Security with Gaming Mode, gamers in Russia will automatically receive a three-month FACEIT Premium Subscription or a three-month NAVI community subscription on FACEIT and gamers in Germany will automatically receive 10,000 FACEIT Points or a two-month BIG community subscription on FACEIT
Gamers on the leading competitive platform for online multiplayer games, FACEIT, now benefit from a new partnership with global cyber security expert Kaspersky. By purchasing an annual subscription to Kaspersky Internet Security with Gamer Mode, FACEIT registered users in Russia will automatically receive a three-month FACEIT Premium Subscription or a three-month NAVI community subscription on FACEIT and in Germany will automatically receive 10,000 FACEIT points or a two-month subscription to the German BIG Community on the platform. This offer is available until March 14, 2022.
Gamers and their accounts are a high value target for cyber criminals. From January 2020 to July 2021, over 300,000 users encountered various gaming-related malware that targeted personal information, money, cryptocurrencies as well as account access data. To protect themselves, gamers need a dedicated security solution. However, many fear that this might affect their gaming experience. Kaspersky Internet Security incorporates Gamer Mode, which offers comprehensive protection with a high detection rate and which does not hamper the gaming experience. Specifically, it has low impact on Frames per Second (FPS) and optimises the device resources to maximise performance.
Kaspersky–FACEIT Bundles: Combining premium gaming experiences and protection for fearless gaming
The Kaspersky – FACEIT bundle combines security, performance and access to gaming experiences including:
three-month FACEIT Premium Subscription or
a three-month subscription to the NAVI community on FACEIT
10.000 FACEIT Points or
a two-month subscription to the BIG community on FACEIT
Furthermore, gamers can take part in the Kaspersky Fearless Gaming Community Nights. During this six-week-long ladder competition, gamers can win 50.000 FACEIT Points and annual Kaspersky subscriptions, while improving their ranking on the competitive gaming platform.
Interested FACEIT Organizers can also become part of Kaspersky’s Global Influencer Program. This offers players who recommend Kaspersky, a commission of up to 50 percent of the purchases generated, and exclusive 100-day trial licenses for their followers.
“We are very pleased to be able to continue driving the topic of security in gaming together with FACEIT”, said Ivan Imhoff, Vice President Digital Business at Kaspersky. “The protection of data, financial resources as well as accounts and the associated digital assets such as skins or equipment are very important to us. Through our offer and this partnership, we want to create an incentive for gamers to install protection solutions so that they can concentrate fully on their game while staying secure.”
“Kaspersky is one of the global leaders in cybersecurity and it has developed an excellent product specifically designed for gamers, which offers players peace of mind without compromising performance or gameplay. Creating fantastic gaming experiences is the bedrock of FACEIT and we’re looking forward to working on this project together”, said Michele Attisani, Co-founder & CBO at FACEIT.

BLAST teams up with Fortnite for third year and will operate the entire 2023 Fortnite Champion Series
BLAST has teamed up for a third consecutive year with Fortnite, and this year will produce and deliver the entire 2023 Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) with a combined prize pool of $10 million on the line.
As part of the collaboration, BLAST will work with the Competitive Fortnite team to deliver three Majors and bring FNCS to an epic conclusion for the year when the Global Championship takes place in-person from Copenhagen, Denmark in late 2023 with an eye-watering $4 million on the line.
The new FNCS format consists of three Majors played across February and March (Major One), April and May (Major Two) and July and August (Major Three). All three Majors will see the European and North American regions produced and broadcasted from BLAST’s Copenhagen studios with broadcast talent on-site and players playing remotely.
The announcement strengthens and deepens the esports entertainment company’s relationship with Competitive Fortnite, after having delivered the entire 2022 FNCS schedule and the long-awaited return to Fortnite in-person events in Raleigh, North Carolina last November for the FNCS Invitational.
BLAST first teamed up with Fortnite in 2021, when delivering the FNCS All-Star Showdown and FNCS Grand Royale events.
Leo Matlock, MD of Development at BLAST, said: “Extending and expanding the BLAST and Competitive Fortnite partnership into a third year is testament to the brilliant progress that has been made with FNCS over the last few years. We are really proud of the journey we’ve been on with the Competitive Fortnite team and how we have been able to support them in elevating the FNCS fan experience by focusing on player-led storylines and fan-first production techniques. 2023 is turning out to be another thrilling year, Major One has already been completed from the BLAST Copenhagen studios and we’re excited to deliver the remaining three FNCS events with a combined prize pool of $8 million on the line.
“We look forward to building on last year’s unforgettable return to Fortnite in-person events for the FNCS Invitational in Raleigh, North Carolina by bringing the year-defining FNCS Global Championship to our hometown of Copenhagen, Denmark for fans and players to enjoy later this year.”
