Events, Fan Engagement, Team Appearances, Watch Parties and More

Infinite Esports & Entertainment and OpTic Gaming, the industry-defining
esports media and entertainment organization, today revealed the launch
of Greenwall VR, OpTic Gaming's official virtual reality clubhouse in
collaboration with Sansar, the premier destination for social VR. The
first-of-its-kind Virtual Reality (VR) space will allow fans of the
popular esports organization to socialize with fellow members of OpTic
Gaming's passionate fanbase, known as the "Greenwall." The community can
engage with actual staff and players of OpTic Gaming's teams, and take
part in the most revolutionary social esports experience to date within
an immersive VR environment. PC owners can login and experience
Greenwall VR for free here.

With an unprecedented level of fan interaction and engagement, Greenwall
VR gives members of the "Greenwall" community access to watch games
together, communicate with other esports fans from all around the world,
submit fanart, purchase team merchandise, communicate with their
favorite pro players, and even participate in exclusive special events.
Future Greenwall VR events and activities will include real world and
virtual awards for fans, and watch parties for North America League of
Legends Championship Series (NA LCS), Call of Duty (CoD) Champions,
Gears of War Pro Circuit Fight Night, and many other competitions.

Already a renowned name in the esports industry, Infinite Esports and
OpTic Gaming continue to push the boundaries of esports, spectatorship
and community, providing fans different and exciting ways to band
together and unite under the "Greenwall." This latest venture into
virtual reality breaks new ground and introduces even more avenues for
fans to engage with their favorite esports team, and charts the course
for future industry investment and innovation with esports fandom and
community building.

"With fans and teams based all over the world, we wanted to create a
truly immersive way for our community to come together as the Greenwall
and feel like they're a part of something bigger," said Oslo Green, VP
of VR at OpTic Gaming. "By introducing virtual reality to esports
spectatorship, we're taking the first steps into creating a grander,
more immersive, and more modern approach to traditional sports fandom,
community and interaction."

For Sansar, the collaboration continues an innovation streak in
immersive, interactive spaces. The social VR platform has already
enabled thousands to host, attend, and enjoy dynamic events in virtual
reality or on PC on par with real-life events - accessible to anyone,
anywhere in the world. The Greenwall VR space takes it to the next level
providing OpTic fans a deeper, more engaging fan experience - complete
with virtual photo opps, player meet-and-greets, commerce, exclusive
giveaways, and more.

"With Greenwall VR in Sansar, we're really pushing the bounds of
traditional spectatorship, and offering an experience that draws fans in
- lets them interact together as a community beyond a chat stream," says
CEO Ebbe Altberg. "We're absolutely thrilled to be elevating the esports
fan experience with social VR, and we're excited to find such a
visionary partner in OpTic."

To experience the space, head to Sansar today.
