GJS ROBOT partners with World Cyber Games (WCG) to open up a new era in esports by introducing GANKER ARENA, a robot fighting championship representing robotics competition in the New Horizons sector of WCG 2019.
Bringing Real Steel to Real Life
GANKER ARENA is an unprecedented robot combat sport that celebrates robotic innovations. In the game, participants are first asked to build their own personalized warrior heroes by painting and modifying the robots. They then involve themselves in a fierce battle to be crowned champion.
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 finals which will take place from July 18th to July 21st in Xi’an, China. The rewards total up to $38,000.
GEIO, the official battle bot for the trial match, retails for $299 and is available for purchase at GamePro, Sprint-Cass, selected Challenger and Best Denki stores.
