LG Electronics USA is partnering with FaZe Clan, the most popular esports team in the world, to host a no-holds-barred gaming competition that will mark the global debut of LG’s new UltraGear™ 21:9 gaming monitor, the company’s most powerful gaming display ever.
The competition, which will take place at DreamHack Atlanta, will feature the blockbuster battle royale title – “PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS” (PUBG) – and will officially kick off with an appearance by FaZe Clan team members FaZe Mxey and FaZe FuzzFace. Other FaZe Clan members, FaZe Teeqo and FaZe Dirty, also will participate in the competition that will pit selected DreamHack attendees against the pros.
The winner-take-all tournament will take place on LG’s new high-performance 34-inch UltraWide gaming monitor (model 34GK950G) that offers superb picture quality and the highest level of immersion for gamers and consumers alike.
The flagship UltraGear 34GK950G-B is designed for immersive, high-performance gaming thanks to its curved, virtually borderless 34-inch Nano IPS display that covers 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color space offering crystal clear UltraWide QHD (3440 x 1440) image rendering. The 21:9 wide aspect ratio display also accurately recreates colors across over 135 percent of the sRGB color space. With NVIDIA G-Sync™ graphic processing technology built-in, the UltraGear 34GK950G is designed to provide smooth motion graphics without tearing or stuttering. What’s more, its high refresh rate of 120Hz (overclocked) means that objects are rendered more clearly for smoother gameplay and seamless visual fluidity. Gamers also can create their own unique ambiance with Sphere Lighting that boasts six color settings to complement any game or movie.
“LG has developed its most powerful gaming monitor yet, offering high definition and high refresh rate that combine to create the most immersive gaming experience possible,” said David VanderWaal, senior vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. “Like LG, FaZe Clan sets the benchmark for performance in the esports world and partnering with them to introduce our newest gaming monitor demonstrates LG’s commitment to providing consumers the ultimate gaming experience.”
The PUBG Invitational will commence with an open round of competition where fans will play against one another in an open bracket style tournament for the opportunity to play against FaZe Clan team members. The entire tournament will be livestreamed via Twitch, and those watching the action are encouraged to engage by using the hashtags #LGUltraGear and #DHATL18.
The competition will culminate with a final faceoff between fans and FaZe Clan members, where they will compete for an ultimate gaming package Grand Prize, built around the new LG UltraGear monitor.
The 34GK950G-B will be available at a special Black Friday price of $1199.99 starting on November 16th through Amazon. It will be available at other retailers including, B&H, Beach Camera, and Adorama in the days that follow*.
DreamHack attendees are encouraged to visit LG’s booth (102) at the opening of the show (Nov. 16-18) to check out LG’s newest gaming monitor as well as to participate in the PUBG Invitational and meet members of FaZe Clan.
