Dreamhack Austin Celebrates eSports And Gaming Next May

Austin, Texas will be the place for gaming next year when Dreamhack hits the state from May 6th-8th for three days of eSports, LAN, gaming, and more. Dreamhack started in Sweden in 1994 when 20 people met up to game together for fun, but since the event has grown by leaps and bounds. Attracting more than 25,000 visitors in 2014 across events held in places all over the world, including Spain, Russia, England, and France.

Next year’s event in Austin, will feature many of the same events found in other Dreamhack events. Including a massive Bring Your Own Computer LAN event — where gamers can meet up with fellow video game enthusiasts and play, hangout, and compete with others in their favorite multiplayer games. Also, featured will be a number of eSports events that will feature a massive cash prize — which in 2014 topped out at over a million dollars — an exposition in which visitors can check out the newest games and gaming accessories, and even buy all sorts of gaming goods. Indie games will also have a large presence at Dreamhack, and will boast their own section on the show floor where indie developers can show over their newest games. If creative things are more your speed, then there will also be gaming-based cosplay events and competitions at Dreamhack as well.

Tickets for Dreamhack Austin go on sale September 15th. More info about the expo can be found at Dreamhack’s official Twitter @DreamHack and on Facebook as well.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
