Mercedes, a global automobile giant, is launching its own eSports team. The company has signed inaugural Formula 1 eSports champion Brendon Leigh as the lead driver.

Leigh, who defeated Fabrizio Donoso Delgado and Sven Zurner in a controversial final last year, will defend his drivers’ championship with Mercedes.

Leigh stated, “The pressure is somewhat enormous to defend this championship.”

“I’m going to walk into the finals with the biggest target on my back that I’ve ever had in my life. The intensity has risen tenfold.”

The 19-year-old will compete alongside 2017 McLaren World’s Fastest Gamer finalist Harry Jacks, multiple-Polish sim racing champion Patryk Krutyi and Dani Bereznay, who was selected by the team in July’s Pro Draft.

The team will be based at Brackley alongside its real-life F1 team.

It will use a “purpose-built eSports training centre, which will provide the team’s gamers with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to develop their skills,” according to Mercedes a statement.

The eSports team will be based in the same building as Mercedes’ “F1 Driver in Loop Simulator.”

“The eSports programme will benefit from transferable elements pertinent to optimising car set-up and honing racecraft.”

“The programme also focuses on human performance and will give the eSports team members access to the on-site Performance Centre covering the core areas of nutrition, physical conditioning and wellbeing that support the gamers in reaching their full potential.”

The quartet will start competing in October in the next stage of the F1 2018 eSports series.

Leap Gaming launches Instant FootballReading Time: 1 minute

 

Leap Gaming, a developer of 3D multi-platform casino and gaming solutions, has launched its latest game, titled Instant Football.

It provides an on-demand football experience through both desktop and mobile devices. Its hallmarks are realistic animated action and fast-paced betting options.

The interface is characteristically simple and intuitive. It features 16 teams. Its other features include the option to browse between games, on-demand activation of games and the ability to skip scenes and matches for faster betting.

Instant Football offers a broad range of betting markets, including home and away teams, and Rebet and Rebet*2 on the same teams – all of which are available 24/7.

Video footage has been created using motion capture technology to record professional players and scans of real stadiums, and is voiced with professional commentary.

The game also offers a range of customisable options, including the UI and UX, languages (the game automatically adjusts to location), currency and betting limits.

It is available directly through Leap Gaming, or via 1X2 Network, SG Digital and other selected platforms.

Yariv Lissauer, CEO of Leap Gaming, said: “Instant Football is one of our most complete game to date, and combines stunning graphics with professional commentary with a wide range of betting options to deliver a truly world-class player experience.

“Virtuals are becoming increasingly popular as players demand round the clock access to sports events and games, and we can certainly deliver this via titles such as Instant Football.”
