Intel wants to bring VR to the competitive level by launching a new online series called the VR Challenger League

Although VR devices allow viewers to watch an eSports game, they can’t use it to actually play one. Intel wants to change this by introducing a competitive gaming series called the VR Challenger League, by partnering with Oculus and ESLGaming. The league will have players competing in Insomniac’s The Unspoken, where players face off in a one-on-one match as wizards who cast spells at each other, and Ready at Dawn’s Lone Echo, a game set in space. Although the series starts online, the finals will have competitors playing IRL.

Players who would like to compete will have to own a VR headset of their own and regularly participate as competitors will get chosen from their leaderboard stats.
