Rise Of The Supergamer

SBS2 July 14, 2016

These professional video game players are not teenagers in their bedrooms, but e-sports legends who train 12 hours a day, play in stadiums packed with fans, and earn hundreds of thousands of pounds. YouTube sensation Dan Howell explores this strange world, following young hopefuls with dreams of reaching the top. From military combat games to strategic fantasies, everything is at stake: fame, glory and huge cash prizes. Largely ignored by traditional media, e-sports is part of a multi-billion pound industry that's bigger than Hollywood, and is about to explode into the mainstream.
