LOS ANGELES, April 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — GJS ROBOT, the award winning robotics company, is taking a pivotal step in the future of robotic competitive gaming by partnering with World Cyber Games (WCG), the world’s largest esports competition. This partnership will open up an enormous new era in esports by introducing GANKER ARENA, a robot fighting championship representing robotics competition in the New Horizons sector of WCG 2019.
After six years’ return, the new WCG is opening up a new sector of the event, New Horizons, the future sports based on new tech. In WCG 2019 Xi’an, WCG will present Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Scratch Creativity, and Robotic Innovations. As an industry leader in battle robots, GJS partners with WCG to launch GANKER ARENA, an unprecedented robot combat that represents robotic innovations in the sector. In the game, participants are first asked to build their own personalized warrior heroes by painting and modifying the robots, and then involve themselves in a fierce battle to be crowned. For GJS alone, GANKER ARENA is not only a robot fighting game, but also a big leap in bringing mecha fighting from science fiction to reality.
“We are extremely excited to team up with WCG to introduce GANKER ARENA,” explained Jason Zhao, Founder and CEO of GJS ROBOT. “We believe this partnership will tell the story of our innovative high quality robots and the role robot combat will play in the future of esports.
“We are impressed by GJS ROBOT’s impeccable robot products and unique warrior spirit,” said LEE JUNGJUN, CEO of WCG. “We are thrilled to enroll GJS in the coming WCG and looking forward to a ‘new era’ that involves robot combat as future sports.”
GANKER ARENA will start off with several pre-contests taking place in countries such as Japan, Switzerland and Vietnam from May to July. GEIO, the first GJS gaming robot equipped with an intelligent visual recognition system and powered by groundbreaking AI and FPV technology, will be used in tryouts before the final match. GANKER EX, a brand-new battle robot equipped with the latest ‘Man-machine Synchronization’ technology made by GJS, is to be designated as the official battle bot for the final game. Winners from each trial match will be selected to represent their country and fight for honor in the final which will take place from July 18th to July 21st in Xi’an, China. The total award amount adds up to $38,000!
