Fans flocking to Wizard World Cleveland at the Huntington Convention Center this weekend will be able to experience more than movie and TV stars and comic book artists, as the HyperX Esports Lounge powered by Shacknews brings a professional esports experience to the event.

Attendees will be able to sign up on the day to take part in hourly tournaments throughout the weekend, with live commentary in front of an audience. Those with a fast trigger finger will be able to face each other in competitive matches on Fortnite and Apex Legends. Those who prefer to let their fists and feet do the talking can face each other in Tekken 7 and Soul Calibur VI, while anyone who prefers ball sports can try their luck in the Rocket League arena.

As well as the adulation of the crowd, there are very practical reasons to sign up for a tournament with incredible prizes to take home every day, including CloudX Stinger gaming headsets, CloudX Flight wireless gaming headsets, and Chargeplay Duo controller charging stations for Xbox One, all courtesy of HyperX.

For those who love to game, but don’t want to test their skill in front of a crowd, there’s still plenty to enjoy. There will be over 30 gaming stations, powered by state of the art Xbox One X consoles courtesy of Microsoft with professional standard 144Hz gaming monitors from BenQ and high-quality headsets from the esports standard, HyperX. 

Here players can sample epic action games like Darksiders 3, beloved role-playing games like The Outer Worlds and The Witcher 3, create havoc in indie hits like Untitled Goose Game or just relive evergreen classics such as Banjo Kazooie and Ninja Gaiden 2. Entry is included in the price of entry to Wizard World Cleveland and all games are free to play.

From thoughtful adventures to heart-pounding racers, family favorites to cult curiosities, whether you want to challenge the best of the best on the hottest multiplayer games or just fancy taking a break from the showfloor to play some games, there’s literally something for everyone in the HyperX Esports Lounge powered by Shacknews.

Wizard World Cleveland and the HyperX Esports Lounge powered by Shacknews will be taking place this weekend on March 6-8th. More information can be found on the official Wizard World website
