ESL partners with NetEase to bring Marvel Super War esports to Australia

The new mobile MOBA title is ESL’s first foray into the space, giving Australian players the chance to play competitively from day one.

ESL Australia are branching out into mobile esports, giving Australian players the chance to go pro in NetEase’s newly-launched Marvel Super War as soon as the game launches with a dedicated competitive ecosystem.

NetEase and ESL have secured a region-first partnership in Australia, giving mobile players the best opportunity yet to try and go pro in Oceania. 

With MOBA title Marvel Super War hitting Australian shores recently, ESL and NetEase are giving players in the region a chance to play competitively from launch day, with a series of tournaments in-game.

ESL are yet to outline the specifics of the plan, but have promised “opportunities for competitive play provided for players soon after launch, with players able to compete on dedicated Australian servers.”

“To be able to collaborate with NetEase on such a well-known IP is a massive opportunity for us here at ESL,” ESL Publisher Development Lead Ben Green said.

“We are aiming to fill in the gaps in the mobile esports ecosystem that may have previously been missing, and are giving players across all platforms the opportunity to get their start in mobile esports.”

Marvel Super War officially launched in South East Asia back in December 2019. The MOBA has registered over 10 million downloads on the Google Play Store, and is also available on iOS via the Apple App Store.

ESL will be working with NetEase to produce in-game events, as well as work with Australian content creators to develop a series of videos to help new players pick up the title.

The mobile esports market is yet to kick off in Australia, with previous fleeting endeavours in Clash Royale at the Melbourne Esports Open with the Red Bull Mobile Esports Open. Other dedicated titles, like PUBG Mobile, have yet to pick up steam competitively in Oceania.


Marvel Super War launched recently in Australia and New Zealand, with in-game tournaments to start soon.
