Tencent Games, developer of next-gen battle royale Ring of Elysium, has announced a partnership with blockchain eSports entertainment platform SLIVER.tv. Powered by Theta rewards, the 24/7 live eSports channel will feature streamers from FaZe Clan, Method, NRG and will include interactive predictions, trivia, and prizes for viewers.
Unique in-game items, such as the Golden Winged Jacket skin, will be purchasable in the SLIVER.tv store for Theta tokens.
As the press reads:
We’re excited to be partnering with SLIVER.tv and bringing unique Theta rewards to Ring of Elysium players,” said Tencent Games. “We want viewers to be able to become part of the eSports experience, and will be able to do so with the interactive eSports channel with SLIVER.tv.
Ring of Elysium launched September 19th for free on Steam and has been well-received by players, achieving positive reviews on Steam and a growing eSports following. While viewing Ring of Elysium matches on community-driven live streaming platform SLIVER.tv, players will be able to earn Theta tokens by logging in, watching live content, and will also be eligible to win premium crates.
Viewers can also use tokens to purchase in-game exclusive skins and premium items or for discounts on real-world products from sponsors.
It definitely sounds similar to Amazon Twitch Prime, but will surely include its own services as the time goes by.
