Named tentatively as C3, which represents Community, Competition and Clinic, Saint Games aims to establish a platform in Singapore where gamers (both casual and pro alike) can gather, network and even compete! We are thrilled as how this will pan out for our gamers moving into 2018 and we are sure this series of activities will be exciting, given the amount of support we have managed to gather from partners who are ready to support us! Hence we are kicking off this initiative in December this year! What better way is there to end 2017?
and we have chosen sim racing and specifically Gran Turismo Sport as our first eSport game because of the long history that Saint Games and Gaming How (our parent company) had with sim racing. So this time round we have teamed up with the folks from Gran Tursimo Singapore to present to you this racing challenge and if you still have no clue what this game is all about, here’s a quick trailer.
So here goes the detail (or you may find our FB event here)
