Ubisoft’s popular Just Dance game is now going to be part of the eSports game lineup for the 11th Electronic Sports World Cup. Other titles that are going to be in the competition are Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Call of Duty: Ghosts. “We are very proud to widen the definition of eSport with Ubisoft. Competitive gaming has to welcome all kind of players, has to be developed in partnership with the games publishers and has to showcase the most advanced technologies which link the body to the game. Just Dance is for ESWC the perfect medium to reach those goals” Matthiew Dallon, founder of the Electronic Sports World Cup said in a press release. This competition has qualifiers running from July 13th through September 21. Finals will be running from October 29th through November 2.
