Some of the world's biggest console games are joining Esports Moguls' (ASX: ESH) growing catalogue of titles.
Fortnite, with over 200 million players worldwide, will be available on Esports Moguls' Mogul.gg platform a fully automated tournament and matchmaking platform.
These console games will be part of one of the biggest tournament series ever hosted in the APAC region; Silver Slam.
The tournament has a $275,000 prize pool and is bound to attract even more players with the addition of some of the world's biggest video games.
The console games which can now be hosted on Mogul.gg are:
- Fortnite (200+ million players worldwide)

Esports Mogul says that offering these games will "aggressively" drive user acquisition.
