"eSports is also even more prominently represented at gamescom compared to the previous years too: eSports suppliers such as ALL ESPORTS, ESL/Turtle Entertainment, Gamer Legion and Webedia Gaming are all going to be present at the world’s largest event for computer and video games.
The latest hardware trends will also be represented at gamescom 2018. Among others Asus Computer, Alternate, Caseking, DXRacer Marketing Europe, Medion, Razer, Roccat, Trust Gaming and Zeus Hardware have confirmed their participation at gamescom 2018.1comments
