‘King of the Hill’ challenges happened at the PLG Arena 5.
This weekend saw the start of the Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC) which doesn’t just put pop culture enthusiasts under one roof, but also video game tournaments that bring out their competitive side.
During MEFCC, HP has hosted a three-day gaming extravaganza that was held in partnership with Power League Gaming (PLG), the leading Middle East eSports operators.
The event saw HP showcasing their lineup of the latest OMEN gaming devices including desktops and notebooks along with special rigs made for VR.
The popular game Overwatch was the main highlight at the PLG Arena 5 where gamers had the chance to participate in challenges that include 6 vs 6 team battles. Gamers also had the chance to interact with professional players such as Sayed ‘Tekken Master’ Hashem who also gave a gaming masterclass session.
