    Thanks to a new partnership between ESL and SLIVER.tv, the upcoming Oakland Intel Extreme Masters Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and League of Legends tournaments will be broadcast in virtual reality for the first time.

    The VR broadcast will include live statistics and viewing options integrated into the stream, allowing VR spectators to view each round from the normal floating camera, and from the perspective of players simultaneously.
