More than 25,000 gamers from all over the U.S. and the world converged on Atlanta this weekend for the 25th anniversary of DreamHack at the Georgia World Congress Center.
More than $1 million in esports tournament prizes was awarded during the festival, which will ran 24 hours a day through Sunday, Nov. 17.
The festival arrives in town just after the Atlanta Sports Council launched the Atlanta Esports Alliance, a new division designed to bring major esports and gaming events to the metro area.
“Because Atlanta is the No. 1 city for gaming environment and No. 5 city for gamers, the Atlanta Esports Alliance is being launched to drive new opportunities for teams, tournaments, venues and esports service providers and partners in Atlanta,” said Dan Corso, sports council president.
