-The organizers of the first international free-to-play videogame campus in the world will announce the five chosen teams at the beginning of July.
The third edition of the F2P Campus, an initiative promoted by the Provincial Council of Álava, the Basque Government and Euneiz University, which is the first free-to-play videogame campus in the world, is on its way to becoming the most international to date. The organizers of the competition have received 17 applications from teams from 13 countries and four different continents, who all aspire to take one of the five places that will give them the chance to spend two months in the Álava capital, accelerating their respective projects with the help of some of the top experts in the industry. “We have teams from Cuba, Canada, Mexico, Korea, South Africa, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Georgia, Lithuania, Spain and even, for the first time, two from the USA. This variety of applications demonstrates the increasing visibility that our campus is achieving around the world, and represents a golden opportunity to present Vitoria-Gasteiz, Álava and the Basque Country as a whole as suitable territories for entrepreneurship in an industry which, in 2020, turned over more than 1.1 billion euros in Spain alone”, says Raúl Herrero, director of a campus that has the management support of BIC Araba. The program is also sponsored by the Vitoria-Gasteiz City Council, the Vital Foundation and the Euskaltel Foundation, in addition to the collaboration of Basquegame and Game BCN
At the beginning of July, the names of the five teams chosen to participate in the F2P Campus 2022 will be announced. The campus will start on July 18 at the Euneiz University facilities in Salburua, and will last for two months, during which participants will receive support, advice and talks from some of the best world experts in this type of videogame which is gaining an increasingly large share of the market.
