ZOWIE eXTREMESLAND will return with its fifth edition starting on December 21 to February 14. Spanning across five Asia-Pacific regional divisions, the 8-week long event will feature open qualifiers and weekend playoffs.
ZOWIE eXTREMESLAND CS:GO Festival 2020 will have a quite different atmosphere from the last four iterations, with the competition divided into 5 APAC regional divisions, including Oceania, South East Asia, East Asia, Middle East, and South Asia.
eXTREMESLAND expressed that hosting the 2020 edition of eXTREMESLAND CS:GO was a hard thing to decide. “It was a challenge for us to decide on whether to host eXTREMESLAND this year. However, considering the health crisis, safety was and remains a primary concern.”
