ESL and Sliver.tv are teaming up for the first ever eSports VR livestream ofCounter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO)and League of Legends during Intel’s Extreme Masters Oakland tournament next week (November 19th and 20th). The coverage will be available on nearly every mobile and PC platform, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Gear VR and others. It’ll drop you into the middle of the action with a 360-degree birds-eye view and first-person player perspectives, in the case of Counter-Strike.
