Orchard Park, New York – March 31, 2020 – The smash hit new Twitch tournament series, Warzone Wednesday, is back for another round of celebrity-fueled mayhem. Hosted on Keempark and his own Twitch channel, Keemstar’s premiere celebrity Pro-Am continues with new competitors joining the fray. This week, Grammy Award-winning DJ Steve Aoki joins DrLupo and Wuskin as the trio takes a shot at winning (more) fame and glory in Call of Duty: Warzone beginning at 4pm EST on Wednesday, April 1st! No joke - tune in during the broadcast for a chance to win prizes from HyperX Gaming too.

Last week’s star-studded show saw the trio of JoshOG, HusKerrs, and Diegosaurs win a combined $20K prize pool courtesy of HyperX Gaming as crowds looked on for over one million hours, viewed by hundreds of thousands of fans. This week’s tournament ups the drama as new fighters enter the bracket for their shot at a share of the clout.

Shoutcasted by none other than Kat Gunn and Josh Sutherland, 16 teams will enter but only one will emerge victorious. Can the new team of Aoki, DrLupo, and Wuskin manage to hold off the likes of NickMercs, CrimSix, and SypherPK? Or will KingRichard, Ninja, and TSM_Albralelie come out on top? Will Nadeshot, Cloakzy, and CourageJD be the last ones standing? A full list of all teams for this week’s show can be found here.

Do you have what it takes to walk away with $20K courtesy of HyperX Gaming on Warzone Wednesday?

This week beginning Wednesday, April 1st, anyone can sign up to get a chance at competing with these giants of gaming on April 8th’s show. Each week, a team of three chosen fans will be selected to participate in the following week’s tournament.
