At the Asian Games in Hangzhou, China, eSports players will have the opportunity to medal for the first time.
The event, which begins Sept. 23, will see players compete in seven games: EA Sports FC, PUBG Mobile, Arena of Valor, Dota 2, League of Legends, Dream Three Kingdoms 2, and Street Fighter V.
This marks a milestone for eSports, which was only a demonstration sport at the 2018 Asian Games, in being recognized as a "real" sport.
The Asian Electronic Sports Foundation's Lokesh Suji said, "The dream will eventually be realized once it gets included in the Olympics as a fully fledged medal sport."
