New venue to open for Inland Empire’s eSports community

The Inland Empire’s eSports community will finally have a place to call home with the grand opening of the “eSports Battleground” in Moreno Valley.

The Battleground is calling itself the Inland Empire’s first dedicated eSports venue and gaming community hub.

As featured on its website, logos for popular games such as Overwatch, NBA 2k, Madden, League of Legends and Call of Duty can be found and likely hint at the theme of possible events or tournaments the venue can showcase in the future.

For the venue’s grand opening on July 1, there will be an Injustice 2 tournament with a cash reward going out to first, second and third place winners. There is a $10 entry fee and a $10 venue fee.

Injustice 2 is a video game that pits superheroes and villans from the DC Universe like Batman, Superman, Harley Quinn and the Joker against each other.

What else will the event bring to the table for the grand opening? The event will feature a gaming chair giveaway, photo opportunities with the DeLorean and free tacos from World Famous Tacos.
