DreamHack Hyderabad Announced in Partnership With NODWIN Gaming
India-based esports company NODWIN Gaming announced that it is bringing DreamHack to India later this year. The international gaming event is coming to Hyderabad, India from 4th to 6th November at Hall 1 and 3 of the Hitex Exhibition Center at Hitec City, Hyderabad. The event seeks to bring together esports pro players, esports fans and gamers from across the country under one roof.
DreamHack’s signature BYOC theme makes a return
Bring your own computer (BYOC) events are a staple of DreamHack and they are making a return. Even in this era of online tournaments, the charm of LAN events simply cannot be beaten. Players can bring their own devices or computers to the event and participate in the event. DreamHack is officially the world’s largest LAN party and computer festival, to the extent of it being recognized by Twin Galaxies and the Guinness Book of World Records.
More details about the event will be available at a later date. With COVID-19 making LAN events a rarity these days, things are finally moving back to normal and the community will be happy to go back to these massive gaming experiences.
Passes are available online and cost INR 499 and above:
Akshat Rathee, Co-Founder and Managing Director at NODWIN Gaming revealed in the official press release that DreamHack is not just a gaming event, it is a festival for the gaming community to come together, have fun, meet old friends, play the games they cherish, and watch. He said, “the community has been waiting to come together again and experience DreamHack like never before and this edition in Hyderabad promises to do the same. It is going to be 3 long days of endless fun.”
Telangana principal secretary Jayesh Ranjan said that Hitec City is a prime location for all the young tech-savvy crowd who are always on the lookout for new experiences. He added, “DreamHack being synonymous with everything digital, it's sure to provide a fun and entertaining weekend for the people of Telangana.”
Dreamhack’s India events took place in 2018 and 2019 but its 2021 event in the country was canceled amidst the global pandemic. The 2021 event was set to have a prize pool of $100,000 USD. The event is expected to be just as massive this year.
