VIRTUAL REALITY ESPORTS TOURNAMENT: VELOCIBEASTS
Have you ever wanted to throw something at someone? Ever wondered what being an anime super hero is like? Austin Virtual League is running a main stage Virtual Reality tournament at DreamHack for the first time ever, and you’re invited to compete.
Velocibeasts is a fast paced, athletic battle arena where champions compete by throwing swords and teleporting to them in mid air. Pick a fast discus, balanced sabre, or heavy hammer. Grab powerups to make your weapon bigger, faster and stronger. Smite everyone in all out mayhem.
Full motion control games put your hands in the game, opening up a new dimension in gaming. Throw swords at your friends, throw them behind yourself. Dodge and parry. Show off your best victory dance, and teleport like crazy before you catch a sword with your face.

HOW TO JOIN THE MAYHEM
- Entering the tournament is easy; staying alive is the challenge. Team up with a friend (or make one!) and drop by the Velocibeasts / Austin Virtual League Booth #340. We’re by the streaming zone in the middle of the Convention Center.
- Once you and your teammate are at the booth, learn how to play, sign in and get slaying.
- Visit the Main Stage at 3pm on Saturday where we’ll announce the top eight 2v2 teams to participate in our tournament.
- If the booth is overcrowded, we’ll prioritize people already familiar with VR, and or cut down on the qualifying match times to get through as many teams as possible.
- We’re rating teams on gameplay, teamwork, strategy, mad skills, great plays, and safety (not wrapping yourself up in the cable or going out of bounds.)
- You’ll need to be 13+ to play.
- Even if you have VR, you can’t get Velocibeasts. It’s not out yet, but you can check out everything you need to know about the game at Velocibeastsgame.com.
- Austin Virtual League is a competitive multiplayer games and creative challenges league pilot in Austin, Texas. Anyone is free to join their open events.
- We’ll be playing on high end HTC Vive systems.
