Gaming is huge on YouTube, so YouTube Gaming was launched to compete against Twitch. And as eSports gain popularity fast in the last few years, YouTube is now launching Event Pages to cater for gamers and fans alike.
Event pages will be hubs of gaming and eSports event content inside YouTube Gaming. Users can view live streams of events and on-demand videos that are either about them or centred around these events. They will essentially form a hub from which users can watch all related coverage of a gaming or eSports event.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
The first of these events to be covered will be the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3 in June. For the event, users can watch streams live and browse and view other video content. They can also chat with others around the world, vote for the best game trailers etc. Coverage of the event will also feature a 12-hour live stream.
