Kasper­sky to present Doom Eter­nal speedrun­ning con­test

Arab News - - Business News -

Kasper­sky will team up with the Euro­pean Speedrun­ner As­sem­bly (ESA) this July, to present a spe­cial on­line edi­tion of Break the Record Live — the show­case event of ESA’s Sum­mer On­line 2020 char­ity marathon. Break the Record Live will this time see seven elite gamers com­pete head-to-head over 14 hours to record the fastest playthroug­h time on Doom Eter­nal — one of the most pop­u­lar gam­ing re­leases of 2020.

Speedrun­ning — a type of gam­ing where play­ers try to com­plete a game (or in some cases, a level) as fast as pos­si­ble — is a show­case of elite gam­ing tal­ent. It at­tracts play­ers from all over the world, across a broad spec­trum of ti­tles, rang­ing from tra­di­tional plat­form games such as Su­per Mario World to pop­u­lar mod­ern clas­sics like Call of Duty. Kasper­sky Vice Pres­i­dent of Mar­ket­ing An­drew Win­ton said: “With a fast-grow­ing and ded­i­cated fan­base, speedrun­ning has in re­cent years moved from a gam­ing niche into the main­stream of gam­ing. The ap­peal of the sport to the spec­ta­tor goes be­yond sim­ply watch­ing an elite gamer rac­ing through a game.”
