DreamHack Open 2015 kicks off in May 8-10th at DreamHack Tours!

After a great year of DreamHack Open 2014 awarding $200,000 to some of the World’s best professional gamers, visiting 4 countries across Europe, and ForGG coming out as the DreamHack Open 2014 Champion. DreamHack is excited today to release the first details of DreamHack Open 2015! While we are not quite ready to release all details of the tour today we are excited to announce the first stop, and the games which will be featured! A special thanks to EIZO, HyperX, Razer and Monster Energy who supported DreamHack Open throughout 2014!

For the first time since its launch in 2012 we are proud to announce that DreamHack Open will feature two games. We will continue to host StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm as an official title, and we will be adding Counter Strike: Global Offensive!

“After the outstanding welcome from the french gaming community regarding the opening of four big LAN tournaments in CS:GO, StarCraft II, Hearthstone and League of Legends, hosting the first stop of the DreamHack Open 2015 is an honor and a priceless occasion to celebrate the coming of the Dreamhack in France. You could not ask for more for a first event!” says Jean-Christophe Arnaud, CEO of Malorian SARL, the coordinator company behind the event in France.

“There is no doubt that 2015 will be a huge year for Counter Strike: Global Offensive, especially after the results we’ve seen at DreamHack Winter and DreamHack Stockholm with French teams excelling. Alongside the very impressive results of French players in the WCS qualifiers for StarCraft II, we are tremendously excited to bring the first stop of DreamHack Open 2015 featuring both StarCraft II and Counter Strike to DreamHack Tours!” said Tomas Lyckedal, Head of Esports at DreamHack AB.
