Does an old skool LAN party, FIFA tournaments, retro console games and VR make your heart beat faster? Then put Friday 15 October 2021 in your agenda! Because on this day the very first gaming event WIRWAR will be organized in De Grolsch Veste.

WIRWAR is the gaming event for Twente students and companies. So put together your own team, determine your game strategy and challenge your colleagues and competitors. Various tournaments are played throughout the day. Of course there are also prizes to be won. There is a program for the participants of the LAN party, but there is also plenty to do for other visitors!

The program

WIRWAR is a one-day gaming festival. The event starts at 3 PM and several tournaments will be played until 11 PM. Then it's time for the awards ceremony and the afterparty. A LAN party ticket gives you access to all tournaments and costs €30. This price also includes dinner and four drink tokens. Don't want to participate in the LAN party, but do you want to participate in all other activities? A visitor ticket costs only a tenner. Both tickets are available via this link.

All popular games are present during this gaming event. Think for example of Counter-Strike, Mario Kart 8 and Half-Life: Alyx. The inner child in you is also rekindled by the extensive range of retro console games. How much time did you spend on Duck Hunt, Soul Calibur and Ping Pong in the past?

Do you prefer the latest technologies? Then the Total Reality Room is the place to be! Play the coolest games in VR or improve your skills in the e-sports lab of the University of Twente. Check out the entire WIRWAR program online.

Win a Playstation 5

In the evening at 11 p.m., the winners of all tournaments will become clear during the award ceremony. The best gamer wins a Playstation 5 bundle with controllers and FIFA 2022 for the company canteen. Sponsored by SubCode. Wouldn't you let such a cool prize pass you by?
