Summer Games Event to be Hosted by Core in Multiverse

You don’t need to travel to Tokyo to compete for your home country thanks to a new Summer Games competition presented by Core. Kicking off with the Opening Ceremonies on July 25th, Core’s Multiverse Games event brings gamers together from across the globe to compete for their home countries, bragging rights, and a share of $25,000 in prizes. The event is open to all and entry is free.

While swimming, track & field, and gymnastics are great spectator sports, this “Summer Games” event features competition only possible in Core, as players will spend two weeks trying to top the leaderboards across 12 original user-generated Core games. If you’ve ever wondered what gravity guns would do to a soccer match or what it’s like to be in a torpedo-packing jet ski duel, then this is the competition for you.

Following the pageantry of the Opening Ceremonies featuring community made floats representing “countries” from the Soviet Union to Mars, there will be two weeks of exhibition matches with some of gaming’s most recognizable faces such as Greg Miller and the Kinda Funny crew; Brian Altano, Max Scoville and Stella Chung from IGN; and former Funhaus front-men Bruce Greene and Lawrence Sonntag; plus other special guests, culminating in a spectacular Grand Finals event on August 5th, 2021.

Schedule:

Streamer Tournament for Charity

Grand Finals Live

August 5, 11:00 AM PDT

On the final day of the event, ALL of the hosts featured during the week will return for a final battle. They’ll have to deal with Core’s upcoming feature that puts streamers in control of the player’s world: “God Mode”.

Contestants will represent their country in the Multiverse Games (selecting from 20 real-world countries – and a few surprise locations) by flying their colors with country-themed skins and cosmetics. Core World will be updated for the event as well, with lots of new sports content and a Neo-Tokyo event hub to access the games.
