Seoul – Following up on two successful community events last year, Vertigo Games is coming strong into 2020 by holding two more community events for BlackShot, its flagship free-to-play online tactical First-Person Shooter.

The first event will be put on at the Pantheon in Subang Jaya, Malaysia, on January 18th.

Another is scheduled for on January 19th at Singapore’s Bountie Arena.

Both events will provide BlackShot players the chance to meet in person with both their fellow mercenaries, and with BlackShot GMs. Each event will feature its own 5v5 single elimination tournament, themed competitions throughout the day, and a huge prize pool that include in-game rewards for BlackShot and Razer gaming equipment.

BlackShot players who register and attend will receive in-game rewards, with escalating rewards given out for testing their skills in the day’s themed events. All attendees are eligible for Lucky Draw prizes at the end of the day.

The BlackShot community events in August and December of 2019 were tremendously successful, and Vertigo Games plans to keep up the momentum in 2020.
