PGL introduces the world to its new in-game Augmented Reality tech at the CS:GO Asia Championships 2018
The CS:GO Asia Championships 2018 taking place this week in Shanghai, China, gave PGL the opportunity to implement its new Augmented Reality features for CS:GO broadcasts.
With a prize pool of $300,000, the CS:GO Asia Championships 2018 features eight top teams from Asia and the rest of the world: Team EnVyUs, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Heroic, Virtus.pro, MVP.PK , VG.Flash Gaming and TyLoo.
The event runs from June 14-18 at the Shanghai Indoor Stadium, a 12,000-seater multi-purpose gymnasium located close to the Shanghai Stadium.
Perfect World partnered with PGL to offer the English broadcast of the event on twitch.tv/pgl . The PGL research and development team worked for months on new features for its CS:GO portfolio. The result was a new form of Augmented Reality for in-game 3D graphics produced with in-house tools, which was introduced in the first day of the event and has once again confirmed PGL’s commitment to innovation.

“We’ve invested a lot of time and resources in order to improve the viewer experience, with the addition of in-game Augmented Reality graphics.”, says Sebastian Honciuc, main show producer.
“This is just a small step and fans should expect more things to come from our CS:GO production moving forward”
The CS:GO Asia Championships 2018 playoffs will take place this weekend, when the six remaining teams will get the opportunity to compete on the stage of the Shanghai Indoor Stadium.
Viewers from all over the world can enjoy the visually enhanced spectacle on twitch.tv/pgl starting Saturday, June 16th, at 9:30 AM local Shanghai time.
