  • Miami, FL (1888PressRelease) June 16, 2015 - iPic Theaters, the nation's fastest-growing affordable luxury movie theater experience today announces its partnership with Super League Gaming to host the first ever Minecraft team playing live event in a luxury movie theater. Super League will enable recreational gamers across the country to community-game in-person, on their own laptops, and on the big screen in a newly created digital playing field where they can view the entire Minecraft landscape as the game unfolds. The Super League Summer Tour will launch on Monday June 15 and continue through August 26, 2015. Ticket sales launch Thursday, June 11 and are available for purchase at superleague.com

    Gamer fans of all ages can purchase iPic tickets to experience group gaming in a completely new way, starting with Minecraft, with other games to come soon. Gamers will play together on teams and individually in a customized Minecraft world created especially for the Super League Summer Tour. Each participant will play on their own laptops, in the traditional first person view, and their entire Minecraft world will be shown full scale on the iPic screen in an immersive third-person point of view. Players will be able to interact, strategize and collaborate with their teammates in real time as they compete against other gamers.

    Super League Gaming adapted the game's open-source codes to build a new world and to create the ability for participating gamers to play simultaneously.

    CaptainSparklez, a YouTube celebrity with over 8.6 million subscribers watching his Minecraft videos, will be an integral part of Super League Gaming and is scheduled to make an appearance at iPic Theaters Westwood on June 17 to help kick off the Summer Tour.

    Super League Gaming has also gained the endorsement and participation of a host of other influential Minecraft gaming celebrities, including top gamers TheBajanCanadian and JeromeASF whom together with CaptainSparklez have a combined 17 million YouTube subscribers. These Super League Gaming endorsees have well over a billion combined views of their Minecraft videos.

    "iPic Theaters offers an incredible entertainment space for what Super League Gaming is bringing to our audience, and their corporate and theater staff was integral in helping get Super League Gaming off the ground", says Super League Gaming Co-Founder David Steigelfest. "They were instrumental in helping us start this business. We could not have asked for a more ideal partnership."

    The game lasts for approximately 75 minutes, during which players can use their build and battle skills, accumulating points as they compete for ranking among international players throughout the world. At the end of a session, a leaderboard will appear on the big screen and supply a rank for players and teams, and gamers can also check their stats every week online. Parents or friends can watch all the action live on the big screen, available seats permitting.

    "The iPic brand is about providing the art of entertainment with the ultimate in-theater experience for our members. We are excited to have played such an important role in helping Super League Gaming launch their vision in our theaters," said Alex Reid, Vice President of Operations at iPic Entertainment.
