SHIFT Gaming

The highly anticipated SHIFT Gaming Experience, presented by MTN, is now in full swing and set to conquer the Hyprop Malls in Western Cape and Gauteng over the coming months. Packed with thrilling gaming activities, enticing prizes, and intense competitions, this event is a haven for all gaming enthusiasts.

One of the highlights of the SHIFT Gaming Experience is the FIFA 23 tournament series, which will reach its climax at Canal Walk in August with a grand final boasting a staggering cash prize of R35,000. Football fanatics and virtual athletes will battle it out on the digital pitch, showcasing their skills and aiming for the ultimate victory. The stakes are high, and the competition promises to be fierce.

For those who prefer a more hands-on approach to virtual combat, daily fighting tournaments are also on offer. Each tournament will feature mall vouchers as prizes, awarded to the top two competitors. This unique opportunity allows players to showcase their mastery of popular fighting games while also walking away with exciting rewards.

If you’re a virtual fighter itching to test your mettle, here are the details you need to know: Each day will feature one fighting tournament, with entry free of charge but restricted to a maximum of 16 players. A generous pool of R1,500 in mall vouchers awaits the winners, with the first-place contender taking home R1,000 and the runner-up receiving R500.

The action-packed event schedule spans three days at each mall, ensuring there is ample opportunity for gamers to participate. It is important to note that walk-in registration will open one hour before the listed start time and close 10 minutes before the matches commence. Each heat will be limited strictly to 16 players, ensuring a fair and competitive environment for all.

The SHIFT Gaming Experience will grace several esteemed shopping centres, starting with Somerset Mall in the Western Cape from April 21st to 23rd. It will then move on to Rosebank Mall in Gauteng from May 12th to 14th, followed by Woodlands Boulevard Shopping Complex from May 26th to 28th. The Glen Shopping Centre will host the event from June 30th to July 2nd, while Clearwater Mall will welcome gamers from July 14th to 16th.
