The first ever Video Game Regionals in Singapore has been officially announced today, and it will take place on 23 May 2015 (Sat) at the Anchorvale Community Club in Sengkang. Players can look forward to compete for the first place award of 120 Championship Points (CPs) and for the honour of being crowned the first regional champion in South-East Asia, amongst other prizes that have yet to be disclosed by the organisers.
