Razer appears to be getting in on the eSports documentary action with a three episode mini-series about the growing competitive scene. Much like Valve’s Free To Play, this is another close look at the people who have chosen to play video games for a living; and how their choices affect those around them.
Called Team Razer: Great Games, the episodes are broken up into different games; covering Starcraft 2, Dota 2, and League of Legends. The first episode will debut on 29 November, both online and during the eSports tournament at Dreamhack Winter in Sweden. Each subsequent episode will follow on a weekly basis.
Documentaries of this kind are doing well to introduce competitive gaming to a more mainstream audience, showing the world that these cyber athletes are more than just anti-social shut-ins. Free To Play had originally showed the human side of Dota 2’s The International tournament, that promised the first ever seven figure grand prize for an eSports tournament. From the trailer, it appears that Razer is attempting to do the same for its own documentaries.
The episodes can be on Razer’s website, and it is safe to assume that all will also be made available on Youtube at some point.
