Ultimate Gamer, basically the Olympics of video games, will debut March 9 and 10 in Miami. At this multi-game e-sports festival, the first of its kind, video game players can compete in a tournament to become “The Ultimate Gamer.”
This week, the festival announced the four video games players will compete in: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Super Meat Boy. These games were chosen because they require a variety of gaming skills, from strategy to quick thinking.
At the competition, the final winner will receive an “Ultimate Gamer” title and $50,000. The first-place winner for each individual game will receive a “Game Champion” title and $5,000.
For Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, players will choose from three weapons—the AK-47, M4A1-S, and M4A4—and play two 10-minute rounds.
Ultimate Gamers will play rounds of Fortnite Battle Royale in 100 Player PvP mode, where single players compete against 99 others.
For Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, players will join four-person free-for-all matches and progress until one player remains.
Gamers will play as Meat Boy in Super Meat Boy, attempting to rescue Bandage Girl as they play.
