Esports Mogul Asia Pacific Ltd (ASX:ESH) has expanded the game title catalogue on its platform to include some of the most popular console games.

Console games have not previously been integrated on and the title expansion will engage a new target market and aggressively drive user acquisition.

The new titles will be available on the platform as part of Esports Mogul’s Silver Slam tournament series which has a prize pool of $275,000.

Esports Mogul managing director Gernot Abl said being able to offer some of the biggest console games on the market was a great feat for the company.

He said: “We will be able to extend to a new demographic of users and with a $275,000 prize pool for Silver Slam, is an appealing platform to play these games.

“I look forward to updating the market on the additional PC and mobile titles we will be integrating with.”

Accelerating user acquisition
