Dream Cruises has created the world’s first oceanic eSports facility. It’s is housed on a 150,000-ton cruise ship called World Dream, which has two homeports in Hong Kong and Guangzhou. The 1,700-square-foot eSports space is a component of the ESC Experience Lab and can house 10 players and up to 80 audience members.

Passengers visiting the eSports facility can play a variety of games, including Tekken and Street Fighter, and are assisted by a professional staff. To encourage engagement, complimentary workshops and free trial games are available. Livestreams of eSports events will be aired on every LED screen and monitor, which includes the ship’s restaurants, theaters and in-cabin televisions.

This inclusion is a reflection of a growing interest in eSports, which has been admitted as a medal sport at the 2022 Asian Games. eSports are also being considered for the 2024 Summer Olympics.
