The Saudi Esports Federation (SEF) and LG today unveiled a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to use the LG UltraGear™ 25GR75FG, a top-of-the-line IPS-based gaming monitor designed for esports enthusiasts, at Gamers8: The Land of Heroes, the biggest gaming and esports festival worldwide.
Gamers8: The Land of Heroes runs for eight weeks from July 6 and the equipment will be used throughout the esports venues at Boulevard Riyadh City, where tournaments are being held.
LG UltraGear™ 25GR75FG has a 24.5-inch monitor enables fluid motion and exceptional visual clarity.
Ahmed Albishri, Deputy CEO at the Saudi Esports Federation, said: “Gamers8: The Land of Heroes is the destination for gamers this summer and the Saudi Esports Federation is constantly seeking ways to ensure that the biggest gaming and esports festival worldwide is unrivaled in its offering. We are delighted to sign this MOU with LG, as this partnership encapsulates our shared vision of fostering innovation and providing the finest gaming experiences. We truly believe that players will relish using the elite equipment in action.”
LG’s Game Mode offers a range of presets tailored to specific game genres, allowing gamers to optimize settings for FPS, RTS, and more. Additionally, the Black Stabilizer feature enhances visibility in dark scenes, providing an edge over opponents and allowing players to comfortably spot details. There is also a customizable Game Mode and enhanced visibility through the Black Stabilizer feature. The NVIDIA G-SYNC and Reflex support provide a competitive advantage for gamers by striving to ensure that screen tearing and input lag are no longer a concern.
Mr. Ken Jeong, LG President, said: “We are delighted to sign this MOU with the Saudi Esports Federation for Gamers8: The Land of Heroes, and look forward immensely to playing our part in such a prestigious gaming and esports festival. We believe Saudi Arabia has an ever-growing gaming industry, with its potential only increasing every day. With the country’s esports industry taking large steps, including the hosting of Gamers8, we at LG take great pride in our UltraGear™ series being used at an esports festival of this magnitude.”
He also added: “The new LG UltraGear™ 25GR75FG not only excels in performance – but enables gamers to experience smooth and immersive gameplay with its fast refresh rate and low response times – but also boasts sleek aesthetics. Its three-sided virtually borderless design and adjustable stand allow for a clean and customizable setup that complements any gaming environment. The LG UltraGear™ 25GR75FG allows gamers to sensationally immerse themselves in the world of gaming in an extraordinary way.”
Gamers8: The Land of Heroes has a prize pool of $45 million – triple that of Gamers8 last year. Full details of all the elite titles appearing at Gamers8 this summer will be released soon. Elite esports competitions are joined at Gamers8 by live concerts from international stars and local and regional heroes, as well as shows, community gaming, education platforms, and fun-filled activities for all ages.
The festival concludes with the Next World Forum, a gaming and esports forum held at the Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Center on August 30-31, that brings together sector leaders and experts from around the world.
