The annual Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS) convention held in the Philippines will now be fully accessible online.

Similar to other gaming events this year like Gamescom and the GDC, ESGS will present itself as an online digital event as a precaution against the COVID-19 pandemic. The long lines for entrance tickets are gone, and might be replaced by virtual queues this time around.
