News: Red Bull is using a new endorsement deal with Twitch’s most popular streamer, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, to promote the brand’s dive into hosting Fortnite tournaments.
Blevins on Sunday officially announced his Red Bull sponsorship on stream with a dramatic 30-second video of him walking toward a camera out of the darkness and tying on a headband that melded together his personal Ninja logo with that of Red Bull.
After the video, Blevins giddily expressed his excitement surrounding the partnership to his typical 100,000+ viewership and detailed the first activation for it—a night-long Fortnite tournament in Chicago’s Willis Tower set to be streamed on Blevins’ Twitch channel.
Red Bull Rise Till Dawn, taking place on the building’s 99th floor, will start as soon as the sun sets on July 21 and continue throughout the night as teams of two battle to accumulate the most points possible before the sun rises over Lake Michigan.
The event’s point system will include elimination-based scoring, but will also promote survival by awarding additional points for contestants who place higher in an individual game. As a part of Red Bull activating its sponsorship of Blevins, anyone who eliminates Blevins in a game will be awarded extra points.
This hybrid scoring format could serve as a guinea pig for future Fortnite esports events as Epic Games plans next year’s World Cup. ————————————————————————————————————————🌎 FOLLOW @esportsplanet1 FOR ALL THE LATEST ESPORTS NEWS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE 🌎————————————————————————————————————————#news#technology#business#game#games#gaming#gaminglife#gamer#gamers#gamergirl#gamergirls#gamerguy#gamerguys#videogame#videogames#videogameaddict#lol#leagueoflegends#wow#dota2#csgo#pubg#fortnite#overwatch#esports#pcgaming#pcgamer#xbox#ps4#blizzard
