‘PC Gamer Weekender’ – Omen By HP To Run ‘Overwatch’ Bootcamp
The wonderfully fun PC Gamer Weekender played on OMEN by HP is returning to London’s Olympia for the third year at on 17th and 18th February 2018, with lots of lovely new PC games to play, developer talks on the most exciting games of the year, and a series of tournaments for players to battle against each other.
This year the show is also hosting the first-ever OMEN by HP Bootcamp. OMEN by HP, who sponsor the Overwatch League, will focus the Bootcamp on every element of Blizzard’s ridiculously fun, fast-firing shooter, ‘Overwatch’. The Bootcamp will include sessions and masterclasses throughout the weekend hosted by the best Overwatch players in the country, including veteran Overwatch expert Mark ‘Valkia’ Purdy and members of the Overwatch World Cup UK Team – Realzx and Kruise.
“The OMEN by HP Bootcamp is a key part of our plan to support the UK Overwatch gaming community by providing helpful tips and tools to improve their gaming skills,” comments Yvonne Hobden, PS Consumer Marketing Lead HP Inc. UK&I. “The winners of the Bootcamp tournament will get a once in a lifetime experience to have their game-play analysed by the pros and get kitted out with the latest OMEN PCs to give them the tools to Dominate the Game.”
As part of the Bootcamp, there will also be a once-in-a-lifetime training opportunity for aspiring Overwatch players in the UK. Two up-and-coming teams of three will be pitted against (and learn from) seasoned professionals and well-known figures in the Overwatch community. At the end of the day both teams, paired with their pros, will face off against each other to prove who the greatest up-and-comers in the nation really are. To qualify for this tournament, you must sign up with two friends here and compete in the qualifiers happening on the 20th and 21st of January. For full terms and conditions, click here.
