Core has teamed up with Multiverse Games for a special event as they will be throwing their own Summer Games this Sunday. Players will be able to interact and compete in multiple events with games built from the ground up using Core's software. The event will kick off on July 25th and will be running through August 5th. We have the full details here in case you'd like to jump into the mix.
While swimming, track & field and gymnastics are great spectator sports, this "Summer Games" event features competition only possible in Core, as players will spend two weeks trying to top the leaderboards across 12 original user-generated Core games. If you've ever wondered what gravity guns would do to a soccer match or what it's like to be in a torpedo-packing jet ski duel, then this is the competition for you. Contestants will represent their country in the Multiverse Games (selecting from 20 real-world countries – and a few surprise locations) by flying their colors with country-themed skins and cosmetics. Core World will be updated for the event as well, with lots of new sports content and a Neo-Tokyo event hub to access the games.
Following the pageantry of the Opening Ceremonies featuring community made floats representing "countries" from the Soviet Union to Mars, there will be two weeks of exhibition matches with some of gaming's most recognizable faces such as Greg Miller and the Kinda Funny crew; Brian Altano, Max Scoville and Stella Chung from IGN; and former Funhaus front-men Bruce Greene and Lawrence Sonntag; plus other special guests, culminating in a spectacular Grand Finals event on August 5.
Opening Ceremonies – Sunday, July 25, 11:00 AM PDT
Broadcast from inside Core, the opening ceremonies will feature a fireworks-filled torch ceremony and an international parade featuring floats made by the community. The opening ceremonies will be simulcast on Dreamhack's mainstage.
