Bountie Arena, a subsidiary of Bountie Holdings, opens the first eSport and gaming lifestyle store in the Lion City. Situated in Fusionopolis at One-North, the store occupies 6,600 square foot of pure gaming experience at the basement of the Connexis Tower.
The eSports scene took off nearly two decades ago in the region and had since taken the main stage in the tech industry in recent years. It has become such a massive market that several initiatives have been launched to drive the growth of this gaming community. Events like Campus Game Fest (CGF) and COMEX have also pushed eSports to the center stage as one of their key highlights.
To complement the growing eSports scene in Singapore, Bountie Arena features the top-of-the-line gadgets and facilities all you can dream of as a gamer. At the center stage, there is two massive 13-meter-wide high-resolution 144Hz LED display panels, flanked by five gaming stations on each side. There is also an enclosed booth off the stage for eSports casters providing commentary during eSports tournaments.
Across the stores, there are 60 high-spec gaming computers by ASUS Republic of Gamers, powered with high-speed internet by MyRepublic. Each gaming station is accompanied by its own gaming chair and accessories for the best gaming experience.
Bountie Arena also offers four gaming rooms with five gaming stations each, designed for pro eSports teams to conduct their own training. These unique rooms are optimized for eSports gamers and their coaches to run through strategies as they are equipped with digital whiteboards for easy discussions.
The venue has another bigger 20-seater private room designed as a classroom setting for training by schools, corporations and other parties to use for private courses.
Other than just eSports and PC gaming, the company also provides entertainment facilities such as a lounge featuring a PlayStation 4, two sets of Nintendo Switch and one accompanying set of Nintendo Labo. They also have one ATARI Pong machine and the two Pandora’s Box arcade machines, as well as soft-tipped electronic dartboards by PHOENIXDARTS. Hungry customers can also dine in their in-house cafe, which serves a variety of drinks, snacks, and quick meals (like Indomie).
