Grey Box, Six Foot and Petroglyph’s Competitive RTS Will Live-stream Fall Qualifying Rounds Leading Up to Finals at PAX South
HOUSTON and LAS VEGAS – Sept. 8, 2015 – Grey Box, Six Foot, and developer Petroglyph have announced the Grey Goo® Tournament Series (GGTS), a set of competitive multiplayer events for their real-time strategy (RTS) game, Grey Goo. Three qualifying rounds throughout the fall will pit Grey Goo’s top players against one another, all leading up to a final showdown from Jan. 29-31, 2016 at PAX South, where Grey Goo launched earlier this year. Grey Box and Six Foot are putting up a pool of cash and prizes estimated at $75,000, including a free trip to PAX South for the qualifying participants.
The first qualifying event in the GGTS is planned for Sept. 26, with subsequent matches coming in October and November. The top four finalists from each qualifier – as well as eight separate wild cards – will receive an invitation to compete at the championship at PAX South, with travel and lodging provided by Grey Box and Six Foot. From each qualifying round to the final battle in San Antonio, the entirety of the GGTS will be live-streamed with full casting and commentary at www.twitch.tv/greygoogame.

Grey Goo combines the best elements of classic RTS design with modern enhancements and an emphasis on tactical base-building and unit management. Three distinct factions – the industrious Betas, technological Humans, and shapeshifting Goo – wage war across the game’s single-player campaign and four-player local (LAN) and online multiplayer. Grey Goo has evolved since its original release with campaign DLC, free maps and a variety of other features, including terrain editor upgrades, a spectator mode, replay mode and dedicated multiplayer servers.
Grey Goo is now available on PC via Steam. It is rated T (Teen) by the ESRB. For more information on the GGTS as it unfolds, please visit www.greygoo.com/ggts, and follow the game on Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch.
