SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Big Buck Hunters everywhere can now compete against each other for cash and prizes with the latest release of Big Buck Hunter Pro Tournament Edition, now available on the App Store. The iconic hunting game is the latest title to integrate Skillz, the leading eSports tournament provider that enables players to go head-to-head for cash and other prizes via their mobile device.
The Skillz update to Big Buck Hunter Pro Tournament Edition arrives just in time for the 2014 Big Buck Hunter World Championships, where the top players in the world will descend on Minneapolis to compete for over $67,000 in prizes on October 24.
For more than a decade Big Buck Hunter has been operating eSports competitions through its standup arcade machines located in tens of thousands of bars and arcades worldwide. Now with the mobile version of the game powered by Skillz, every fan of the celebrated franchise can compete for both real and virtual currency, even without heading to Minneapolis.
“We are excited to partner with such a well known and storied brand,” said Andrew Paradise, CEO and Founder of Skillz. “Now, everyone around the world can compete for cash and glory with the Big Buck Hunter mobile app powered by Skillz.”
Big Buck Hunter Pro Tournament Edition, developed by leading mobile game studio Super Happy Fun Fun, is faithfully based on the #1 hit arcade hunting game from Play Mechanix. The game features all of the fast-paced action of Big Buck Hunter and now includes head-to-head challenges powered by Skillz.
As a competitive tournament platform, Skillz can be integrated into any new or existing mobile game, enabling peer-to-peer competition. Skillz has previously announced partnerships with over 350 game developers and currently operates more than 75,000 tournaments per day across hundreds of mobile titles.
