The studio consists of two main areas equipped with technology to offer 360-degree stages, spectator chambers and places for the audience and journalists.
Electronic Arts has decided to invest in dedicated eSports installations and will debut the Madden NFL 19 Challenge with its new broadcasting technology. At a time when Apex Legends has already won the players, the publisher is likely to pave future plans for the creation of tournaments dedicated to the new Battle Royale.
In this sense, the facilities are composed of two main studios: a competitive area and another that will be a lounge for the players. In the space of competitions there will be 360-degree scenarios, viewers' chambers and places for the audience and journalists. In the players lounge there will be robotic cameras and directional microphones. The space also has a control room, an area with a chroma screen (green screen) and a desk for four places for analysts, says Engadget.
And the first event is already marked. Madden NFL 19 Challenge officially kicked off today and will challenge 16 players to face each other in the studio for a $ 190,000 prize pool.
Remember that Electronic Arts has in its future strategy games focused on the online experiences (live services) and eSports competitions. There is no shortage of titles in his catalog dedicated to electronic sports, such as Battlefield V, NBA 2K19, FIFA, the new Apex Legends, Star Wars Battlefront 2, among others.
