OCA Announces Names Of Esports Titles For Asian Games 2022

The debut of esports as an official medal sport will include some of the most popular titles, a truly a historical achievement for esports.

The Olympic Council of Asia has named eight esports titles to debut as official medal sports in the upcoming Asian Games.

The council has mentioned eight games which are as follows:

  • Arena of Valor Asian Games Version
  • Dota 2
  • Dream Three Kingdoms 2
  • EA SPORTS FIFA branded soccer games
  • HearthStone
  • League of Legends
  • PUBG Mobile Asian Games Version
  • Street Fighter V

Apart from the above games, AESF Robot Masters and AESF VR Sports; both powered by Migu, are two games kept for demonstrative purposes.

Mr. Husain Al-Musallam, Director General of the OCA said. “We hope that this announcement allows all participating teams ample time to prepare and equip themselves ahead of the qualifying stages.”

“I believe we have ticked all the right boxes ensuring a high level of competition which promises great viewing for enthusiasts and casuals alike,” he added.

According to Mr. Husain, OCA will work with Asian Electronic Sports Federation(AESF). With both organizations managing the qualifying competition, operation and management of the esports competition taking place at Hangzhou.

Esports was a demonstration sport at the 18th Asian Games in 2018. However, with the eight games entering as a medal sport, teams taking part in the competition will now have the responsibility to win medals for their respective countries. It will be an interesting way to see esports and one which we have never witnessed before. Players carrying the torch for their country and the merging of traditional sports with esports is a huge step forward for the gaming world and its communities.
