Santa Monica, CA – October 29, 2014 – OpTic Gaming, the American Call of Duty (COD) team, has seen the view from the top. X Games 2014 gold medalists and 2011 Call of Duty XP World Champions, OpTic Gaming has grown as eSports’ esteem and prize pools have skyrocketed over the past years.
But once you’ve reached the top – where do you go from there?
The upcoming four-part web series from Red Bull Media House, OpTic Gaming: Behind the Green Wall, documents this legendary team as they train individually and together, during a six week boot camp in Los Angeles, CA. View trailer here.
Working closely with the Red Bull High Performance team, who have helped athletes like Lindsey Vonn and Shaun White find and surpass their personal limits, the OpTic Gaming crew underwent intense physical conditioning, boundary pushing sky dives, and marathon gaming sessions in their search for peak performance.
The premiere episode of OpTic Gaming: Behind the Green Wall will debut on the Red Bull eSports YouTube channel on November 3rd, with a new episode launching every other week.
