A week or two ago I had my first glimpse of Belong, which is a cutting edge gaming arena by Game. With Belong you get to test the latest in new gaming technology and join likeminded gamers across a multiple of different platforms such as PC, PS4 and Xbox One. One of Belong’s greatest features is the fact you can challenge your friends in person rather via the headset, because gaming is much more fun face-to-face!
With Belong you can also play rival teams of Belong members across Britain for example a team in cardiff can go head to head with a team in Bristol and from there they can move onto the semi-finals and then onto the finals which I believe is held in London and you do get an awesome prize at the end of the tournament!! On their website they state;
“Belong Arena Clash is the first step for aspiring esports players to test their skill.
Teams and players can register to take part in their local Belong Arena Drafts where they will compete with locals to determine their seeding for the full Belong Arena Clash season.
Once the Drafts are finished the real fight begins, players will rally behind their Arena Tribes and face off with rival Arenas from across the UK. The winning teams will be rewarded with thousands in prize money and the bragging rights that come with being the best region in the country.
The Arena Clash is open to anyone, just head down to your local Arena and sign-up to enter the Drafts!”
There are Belong arenas all around Britain, arenas are located in Bristol, Gateshead, Hull, London, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Portsmouth and Colchester.
How did I find out about Belong?
My good friend Kelly is Queen Bee (I believe) of Game, Cardiff. I’m usually there every other week since the better half is a massive gamer!! Kelly and the team were working non stop with the refurbishment and introducing Belong!! She gave my grand tour and i was very impressed. I think it had only been open for a day or two when I went but people had already heard and were already playing!! I was given a insightful and a quick brief summary of Belong and I went on my way to take some images!! I hope they do the place justice!!
What makes the experience 100 times more enjoyable is the staff. The staff at Game are always on hand to help and are the nicest people I’ve ever met! Snaps to them for all their hard work. I’m 120% sure that Belong will blow everyone away!!
Well done Kelly, Proud of you!!!
