Looks like your mom won’t nag you anymore about your passion for computer games.

For the first time under the International Olympic Committee, Esports will now be a medal event at the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.

Limeng Lee, chief strategy officer of gaming computer and accessory maker Razer announced the milestone. They are the official esports partner of the Philippine SEA Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC) and is part of the group who led the bid to bring esports to the games to be held here in the country.

Only the game Mobile Legends Bang Bang has been confirmed so far. Five more games are expected to be announced in the following months, including one other mobile game, two PC games, and two console games.

Qualifying tournaments will determine who can represent their country and compete at SEA Games, though no further details have been released yet. You don’t need to worry, however, if you’re an established gamer or is just beginning to make a name for yourself. Both amateurs and pros can try out, qualify, and/or compete.

Do you have what it takes to be among the first esport athletes to medal at the SEA Games?
