Jme, Gfinity and Hype Management are gassed to confirm that they have joined forces to create ‘Serious’, a series of video gaming events. The first of these will be the Serious Rainbow Six Siege Tournament. This is a UK based tournament featuring the Xbox One version of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, a team-based tactical shooter from Ubisoft.
Jme is a self-confessed huge fan of video games and first person shooters in particular – just check out the lyrics to Game from his 2015 album, Integrity.
Online qualification took place on Sunday 28th August on gfinity.net/serious, with the winning team being invited to the live finals on Friday 9 September at the Gfinity Arena, London to play off against three invited teams, including Jme’s own team, Headtop!
Jme said; “I’m online murking just as much as I’m on stage, it was only a matter of time until this happened. I’ve got my team, Headtop, and we’re more than ready.”
Sam Van Tilburgh, Head of Marketing at Gfinity adds; “It’s going to be wonderful with Jme and supporting the competitive Rainbow Six community with another platform, with a twist. Bringing music and games together is something we’re keen to explore.”
