The X Games Austin will be packed with the world's best action sports competitions and include a festival with live musical performances from Blink-182, Logic, G-Eazy, and All Time Low at the Austin360 Amphitheater. This year, attendees will also be able to participate in open esports tournaments to join the competition and play for prizes.

From June 3-5 ESL will be running the ESL Challenge at the X Games Austin. Every day of the X Games, a different game will be featured at the ESL Challenge in the Gaming Shack at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

All attendees are invited to sign up for one of several tournaments throughout the day. Signups will be done in person, and tournament slots will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Players will play their way through a competitive bracket with other X Games attendees, and the winners will receive prizes including shirts, Maxnomic gaming chairs, Plantronics RIG 500HS headsets, PlayStation 4 consoles autographed by X Games athletes and more!

Austin's own Rooster Teeth Productions will have Jack Pattillo and Tyler Coe hosting the competitions to keep the crowd entertained during matches. There will be multiple tournaments throughout each day of the ESL Challenge, so be sure to stop by for a chance to win!
