AMD Hosting Fan Day, Battlefield 4 Tournament Next Week

By - Source: AMD | B 8 comments

It's the world's first Battlefield 4 tournament.

Next week AMD will kick off its Developer Summit 2013 from November 11 to November 13, and Tom's Hardware will be there to cover the keynotes, exclusives, and dig up any information related to the company's developer sessions (there's always a good nugget). The company also plans to host a Fan Day in San Jose on November 13 from 9 AM to 8 PM PST, aka next Wednesday, offering up prizes and the very first Battlefield 4 tournament.  

"Come join us for a day of tournaments, contests and raffles. We've teamed up with a number of partners to bring our fans more than $50,000 in prizes!" reads the Fan Day splash page. "Think you have what it takes for battle? We'll be giving 16 teams of five players the opportunity to play in the world's first Battlefield 4 tournament. Winners will go home with an AMD-powered system."

    They couldn't supply their own event with a newer R-series card? At least they are having an event though ;)

    Hope they fix all the multiplayer glitches or that event is going to suck.

    What multiplayer glitches are you speaking of? The ones that would effect a Pub/PUG game with a server more than 100m away from the group of computers playing within 30M of eachother? Because obviously LAN=/=Online
