Super League is the world’s first and biggest video game league that takes place in movie theaters worldwide. Bringing gamers of all ages together for a social, face-to-face gameplay experience on the big screen, Super League is establishing theatre auditoriums as the ultimate place to play some of the world’s most popular games.
To date, Minecraft is arguably the world’s most popular game, with over 70 million people having purchased it and more than 42 million Minecraft-related videos currently uploaded to YouTube.
How it works:
Gamers will bring their laptop into the movie theatre and connect to the Super League server. Once connected, they’ll join a lobby with up to 100 other gamers at the event. Teams will be formed and gamers will embark on 90 minutes of Minecraft fun.
For Fall 2016, Super League will be offering two ways to play Minecraft in a movie theatre: Minecraft Adventure and Metropolis Madness.
Minecraft Adventure is series of “one-day” events running every Tuesday and Saturday of the week from September 20 to October 1. Each event will feature different worlds, themes, and games. Minecraft Adventure events are standalone – tickets are purchased on an event-by-event basis, and teams are formed in the theatre before the start of each event. Tickets are $20 each.
Metropolis Madness is a four-week “league” running once a week from October 19 to November 9. The league and all of its games feature a “city” theme, drawing from historical US landmarks – the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Alcatraz Island, Central Park, and more. Tickets must be purchased for the whole league upfront. The $80 cost of admission includes entry to all four events.
