The Skyesports Champions Series Playoffs are about to kick off today, with six teams set to duke it out for US$30,000 in prize money and two spots in VCT APAC Stage 2 Challengers.
INDIA – Ahead of the Skyesports Champions Series Playoffs – a road to VCT Stage 2 event from May 31, Skyesports has released the official music video titled “South Asia Arise” featuring Global Esports’ Ganesh “SkRossi” Gangadhar, Velocity Gaming’s Debanjan “DEATHMAKER” Das, Enigma Gaming’s Sabyasachi “Antidote” Bose, and Revenant Esports’ Divyansh “Scargod” Jain.
“South Asia Arise” is a film by Global Esports Studios, produced by Skyesports, directed by Mohit Israney, and with music by Karan Kanchan.
After a disappointing campaign in VCT Stage 1 in which the South Asian teams of Global Esports and Velocity Gaming fell in the early stages, “South Asia Arise” depicts the teams letting go of that weight, shattering the jail of their past results, and moving ahead to conquer in VCT Stage 2.
Shiva Nandy, Founder and CEO of Skyesports, commented, “Our goal with the SCS is to create a benchmark for South Asian esports, and the South Asia Arise music video is just one of the many things we have planned.
“I would like to thank Global Esports Studios, who have done a fantastic job on creating a truly goosebumps-inducing video as we head into the SCS Playoffs. I can’t wait to show fans the other surprises we have in store and also unveil the stage we have built here in Chennai.”
The playoffs for the Skyesports Champions Series (SCS) are set to take place from May 31 to June 5, with six of South Asia’s finest VALORANT teams competing for a share of the US$30,000 prize pool and two coveted spots in VCT APAC Stage 2 Challengers.
