If you ever wondered whether non-gamer parents can play video games competitively with their gamer children, there is an answer to that curiosity without killing the cat, and it lies in Astro Ceria's upcoming show, Generasi Gamerz.
Generasi Gamerz is a hybrid game/reality programme - in partnership with your eGGcellency, eGG Network - that pits two Malaysian celebrities or gaming influencers head-to-head against each other in popular video games, including Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, FIFA 20, Fall Guys and more. From TikTok star Norreen Iman to popular Facebook Gaming Creator FattahZie, there will be plenty of familiar faces to watch out for in Astro Ceria's latest esports-centered show.
Most importantly, these professional or avid gamers will be paired with their very own definitely-not-gamer parents to turn up the wackiness and wholesomeness. So, expect heaps of funny training montages between the parent/child pairs, bonding moments and, of course, thrill-filled esports action, that's fun for the whole family.
Generasi Gamerz will premiere this Friday (13th November) on eGG Network (CH800) and Astro Ceria (CH631) at 9PM (GMT +8); subsequent episodes will be broadcast every Friday at the same time.
With COVID-19 bringing the regular football season to a halt, 20 footballers from 20 of Europe's most historic clubs will pick up their controllers and compete to be crowned the Stay and Play champion.
And you get to watch live on eGG Network!
The Stay and Play Cup is a single elimination knockout tournament. Each match will be a one leg 1v1 match with 85-rated squads, with the winner advancing to the next round and the loser being knocked out of the tournament. In the event of a draw after 90 minutes, games will be decided by extra time and penalties.
EA (the FIFA20 publisher) will donate US$1M(!) to Global Giving’s Coronavirus Relief Fund. The tournament will also feature ways for fans and viewers to donate and support the ongoing global relief efforts to help tackle and stop the spread of COVID-19.
Fans can catch all the action LIVE on eGG Network (Astro CH800) starting tonight at 12am (GMT+8).
