Following the launch of YouTube Gaming, the video game streaming platform is now expanding as a hub for eSports gaming content. YouTube recently introduced Event Pages, which are designed to allow fans and gamers to tap into live and on-demand eSports event coverage.
One of the first eSports events to be covered via YouTube Gaming will be E3, which will allow users to tap into livestreamed videos and chat with other users around the world. At the event, there will be a 12-hour livestream, which will ensure that anyone who isn't able to be there in person will feel as if they're not missing a beat.
The introduction of the Event Pages on YouTube gaming is in line with the rise of
eSports gaming and spectatorship around the world.
