SGO Inside Drive 5/2: PES League & More!
PES League 2019 Regional Finals
Konami has revealed the location for the Americas’ PES League regional finals. The event will go down in Hilton Mexico City Santa Fe. This is the second season of the official Pro Evolution Soccer eSports tournament. The finals will have a 1v1 category as well as CO-OP. Additionally, both will follow a traditional tournament format with a group stage, proceeded by a knockout stage. Top eSports players from Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and more, will be competing for a spot at the upcoming PES League 2019 World Finals.
In addition, you can watch the regional finals on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook Live.
Mike Modano Joins Tiidal Gaming Ownership Group
Veteran NHL player, Mike Modano, has joined Lazarus Gaming adding him to its ownership group. Officially, he is apart of Tiidal Gaming Group, the parent company to Lazarus. Moving forward, Modano will be serving as the group’s ambassador. Modano has several accolades to his name. He is not only a Hall of Famer, he is also the first ever American-born player to be selected first in the NHL Entry Draft. In addition, he is a Stanley Cup winner and served twice in the Olympics. Modano has gone on to say he is “excited” about the partnership and that the growth of eSports simply “cannot be ignored.”
Renee Young Providing Commentary in WWE 2K20
Until it is officially announced, it is best to take all news with a grain of salt. However, that does not stop rumor mills and hype trains. As the video shows, a leaked image of a voice script hints towards Renee Young joining commentary for WWE 2K20. This unfortunately seems to be only for the Showcase Mode centered around the Women’s Revolution. While this would be a huge breath of fresh air, it seems she would be replacing Corey Graves and not Cole or Saxton. Interestingly enough, (although taken down) the image was posted by Renee Young herself. This gives the information some legitimacy, but like wrestling cards, games can be subject to change.
