VREvolution officially launches their VR esports league platform today at noon PDT/3 pm EDT with a 3-division Population: One tournament featuring solo competition.
BigBox VR’s Population: One quickly rose to the ranks of the premier battle royale game in immersive reality following its October 2020 launch. The developers have remained engaged with the community and consistently introduce updates and new features.
Since the Private Room Open Beta began on April 2, several community groups, leagues, and organizations have been actively hosting events, including one that featured Solaris and Hyper Dash players, a Population: One Premier League hosted by Mob Toyco, and an invitational event in early May. There was particular excitement around the April 16 launch of Private Room Solo Mode, enabling players to create private lobbies and compete against one another individually.
VREsports.com, the parent organization that created VREvolution, has been planning to host a Population: One competition since last year, but like many others, they were waiting for the release of private rooms. Today’s tournament is their first event on the new platform.
“We want to further grow VREvolution.gg and aim to organize bigger tournaments with more participants and higher prizes,” states Yigit Kirca, Digital Content Manager for VREvolution.gg. “We also plan to offer tournaments for a variety of different games. Our goal is to become one of the biggest platforms for competitive VR, and we are confident that this first tournament will allow us to make a strong debut,”
The team at VREvolution also recognizes the importance of community so they’re active on social media and play games like Population: One regularly themselves. This gives them an opportunity to interact with the community and they also answer questions, discuss competitive VR gaming, and listen to feedback about the games and their esports platform.
