Red Bull has announced Red Bull Golden Letters, a spectacular two-day Tekken 7 event that will see grassroots UK players compete for a chance to battle the very best in the world, which will be hosted at the Red Bull Gaming Sphere in London on  Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March.

The epic new event will feature Red Bull’s Tekken superstars Arslan Ash and Hoa ‘Anakin’ Luu, widely recognised as two of the best fighting game players in the world, as they take on UK players, as well as star in an epic 5-on-5 Europe vs The World exhibition match.

In typical Red Bull fashion, Red Bull Golden Letters features a unique format that places an emphasis on producing perfect plays and showing poise under pressure to earn ‘Perfect’ and ‘Great’ scores – Tekken’s iconic ‘Golden Letters’. Players who manage to achieve three ‘Perfect’ or ‘Great’ scores automatically win the entire set in the epic ‘First to Three’ clashes. Incentivising high risk for high reward plays, Golden Letters switches up the traditional Tekken gameplay for unforgettable matches and moments.

Red Bull Golden Letters is open to all UK and EU Tekken 7 players or fighting game fanatics, with sign-ups now open. The event will let amateurs and pros alike fight it out at the Red Bull Gaming Sphere to showcase their skill under pressure in the unique format and be crowned Red Bull Golden Letters Champion and live on stream on twitch.tv/redbull.

Two of the world’s best Tekken stars, Arslan Ash and Hoa ‘Anakin’ Luu, will be joined by several other renowned pros who will enter into the latter rounds of the competition to give UK grassroots players and aspiring professionals a once-in-a-lifetime chance to test their mettle. The event will also feature ‘Beat the Pro’ challenges throughout the weekend to take on all contenders, live on stream.

The event promises to end in a flourish, with a five-on-five Europe Vs The World clash. The Exhibition match will feature Red Bull Players Anakin and Arslan Ash, as well as several other Tekken stars to be revealed at a later date, offering an unforgettable spectacle for the fighting game community.

Red Bull Golden Letters will be broadcast from the Red Bull Gaming Sphere in London and live on twitch.tv/redbull

Premium free-to-play content provider has launched Golden Goals and 6 Score Challenge worldwide with bet365.

Incentive Games, the provider of premium free-to-play games, has successfully launched another two bespoke games for bet365:

  • Golden Goals; and
  • 6 Score Challenge

Golden Goals is a daily retention game, where users collect soccer fixtures from Monday to Friday. 

Every time a fixture contains four or more goals, the user earns bet credits – winning even more if 20 goals or more are scored across their weekly collection of fixtures. 

6 Score Challenge is a jackpot-style score predictor game with a twist. If the user correctly predicts all six scores, they win a massive jackpot. 

But it’s not just a long shot at winning – users will also win prizes for getting three, four, or five predictions right. 

The two new games are to be used primarily for the English Premier League but are also to be rolled out for other leagues and sports. 

John Gordon, CEO and Co-Founder of Incentive Games said: “It is a pleasure to work with bet365 on these amazing games. We are honoured to be working with such great people who understand product.  

“The daily retention game, Golden Goals, is going to be a game changer in the industry. While, we have always had great success with our score predictor titles, the 6 Score Challenge is going to be the biggest of its kind in any industry.” 

A spokesperson from bet365 said: “We are excited to give our consumers these innovative and best-in-class titles from Incentive Games.”

“The data and analytics that goes into creating these games mean that we’re sure our users will love them around the world.”

GameRefinery July Market review: Large-scale content updates in major mobile titles

GameRefinery July Market review: Large-scale content updates in major mobile titles
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Several major mobile game titles saw music-themed content and events added. The most significant was PUBG: Mobile’s first in-game concert featuring K-pop stars, Blackpink. It brought an immense spike in revenue. This occurred because of a Cheering event where players could purchase or collect Cheer points through daily tasks, and once they had enough, they could purchase Blackpink outfits and receive a special title.

Diablo Immortal and Apex Legends: Mobile had their first significant updates in the US market. Diablo Immortal introduced the non-recurring Hungering Moon event, a new Battle Pass season, two new raid bosses, and a free class change mechanic. Apex Legends: Mobile announced a new season that added a new map from the console/PC version, an exclusive character, events, and cosmetics.

Additional updates in the US market include Brawl Stars implementing new skins designed by K-pop stars, BTS. Cookie Run: Kingdom collaborated with Disney for a Disney-themed event, and Genshin Impact re-implemented its Summer Fantasia event.

In China, Harry Potter: Magic Awakened introduced a 4v4 co-op Battle Royale game mode and a new permanent boost system. Ace Racer partnered with the Hainan Island province for its first-anniversary event that featured real-life money prizes and in-game rewards.

Diablo Immortal ranks within the top 2 grossing in China. League of Legends esports manager game Ying Xiong Lian Meng Dian Jing Jing Li ranks within the top 5 grossing and is perhaps the first mobile esports manager.

Music and summer-themed updates were especially prevalent in the Japanese market. Puzzle & Dragons added a BGM collecting system. Uma Musume Pretty Derby, Idolmaster Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage, and One Piece Treasure Cruise all held summer events and gachas.

Despite an apparently lacklustre launch in the Japanese market, the 4X strategy game Ant Legion enjoyed a spike in revenue in July and currently ranks among the top 110 grossing.

If you’d like more updates like this, you can find the bulletin on the GameRefinery website.
