■ Esports festival with a variety of events, taking place alongside Epic Seven World Championship, gathers Epic Seven fans from around the world
■ Official event website now open; Main Matches scheduled to be livestreamed on April 25
[April 23, 2021] Epic Seven, the hit global RPG developed by Super Creative and published by Smilegate Megaport, proudly presents the 2021 Epic Festival for fans of Epic Seven all across the world with the official launching of the event website. The main events kick off on April 25, when the Epic Seven World Arena Championship (hereinafter referred to as “E7WC”) begins livestreaming the Day 1 Main Matches.
E7WC is the main event of this year’s Epic Festival and will serve as a way to determine the strongest Heir in the real-time PvP mode World Arena. A total of sixteen competitors, each of which made it through the preliminaries from the Korea, Asia, Europe, and Global servers, will collide in the Main Matches, taking place on April 25 and May 9. Eight victors from the Main Matches will continue on to compete with one another to win in the Finals on May 30 and go down in Epic Seven history. The championship is offering a total prize money of 50,000 USD, with 30,000 USD and a trophy being awarded to the winner of the Finals.
As this is Epic Seven’s first global esports event, this event has great meaning to those who love Epic Seven. This festival is expected to be an opportunity for Epic Seven to widen its global fanbase, present new content that conveys the joy of esports, and show off Epic Seven’s stable server infrastructure, solidifying the game’s position as a genuine hit around the world.
Smilegate Megaport has also organized multiple other events for fans who are not competing in the tournament to take part in during the 2021 Epic Festival. Of particular interest is the Epic Quiz, which is the first real-time quiz event based on a Korean mobile game. Epic Quiz is a live game show that will ask participants ten questions, and participants who answer all ten questions correctly will receive a portion of a total of 77,777 Skystones. The portion awarded to those who win will be equal to the total amount divided by the total number of participants who got all the quiz questions right. All Epic Seven players are eligible to take part in the event via the event’s mobile website. Alongside the quiz event, there will also be a Match Prediction Event in which players can guess which competitors will win, providing rewards such as 4-5★ Hero Summon Tickets to participants and more to those who correctly predict the winners.
Due to COVID-19, all portions of E7WC will take place online, and all battles in the Main Matches and Finals will be livestreamed via YouTube, Twitch, and Epic Seven’s official channels. The livestream will take place in English, Korean, and traditional Chinese, and match schedules have been carefully planned so that fans in North America and Asia will be able to watch the livestream in the evening on Saturday and during the day on Sunday respectively. Finally, a Viewing Event will also take place, with surprise gifts being distributed to livestream viewers.
For more information, Heirs can visit the 2021 Epic Festival official website, containing livestream schedules and all the details of both the big and small events. By visiting the website, players can also obtain Festival Tickets for free that can be used to enter a raffle offering prizes such as E7WC merchandise, Luna figures, and more.
Smilegate Megaport’s Business Department Manager Sanghoon Lee commented, “We aimed to create a festival in which Epic Seven’s global fans could gather and have fun together in an esports championship,” and, “We’ve also planned the Korean mobile game industry’s first ever real-time quiz event, Epic Quiz. We are truly looking forward to players’ participation.”
