Smart Communications has launched GIGA Arena, the country’s first all-in-one esports platform that aims to empower Filipino mobile gamers with the total esports experience.
Open to all Smart and TNT customers, GIGA Arena lets users match up with fellow players to compete in daily, weekly, and monthly tournaments on gigaarena.smart. Registration starts on March 9.
For its launch, GIGA Arena features four of the most popular mobile games in the country: Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, League of Legends: Wild Rift, Call of Duty Mobile (CODM), and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile (PUBGM).
To access the platform, subscribers need to create an account on gigaarena.smart and create an account using their Smart or TNT mobile number. To join ongoing tournaments, users need to use ‘tickets,’ which they can earn and accumulate every time they register to GIGA Games data packs.
Aside from enabling users to compete in live tournaments, the platform also lets mobile gamers setup tournaments, stream live competitions, play arcade games, purchase e-load, and conveniently link their e-wallet to secure their tournament winnings via GigaPay with PayMaya, among others.
Smart partnered with global esports company LEET Entertainment in the creation of the platform.
