TikTok Is Looking For The 'Next Gaming Superstar'
As will be of no surprise to anyone, TikTok has been the premier location for all sorts of content for a while now. And while it might be the best place for trends, comedy and skits, many have been unaware that the platform has a great deal of gaming content creators running amok. It’s been especially well utilised by streamers, who will upload gameplay highlights from their streams to boost their viewer base and spread out just a little further. And, as luck would have it, it looks like TikTok has taken notice, and are looking to reward the absolute GOATs of the platform’s gamers.
What Is TikTok’s Gamers Got Talent?
TikTok has teamed up with Enthusiast Gaming and e.l.f Cosmetics to create TikTok Gamers Got Talent, a platform-wide search for the next big thing in the world of gaming. It is a seven-week series that brings a focus to the hidden talents on the platform and seeks to label creators as one of the next greatest gaming content creators in the world.
TikTok has been vague as to what the “next best thing” looks like, but we expect to see some incredible online plays paired with some great entertainment value from the player.
There’s a whopping $25,000 prize pool for the absolute winner, plus a bunch of prizes from e.l.f Cosmetics. The winner of the search will be determined by some famous faces and gaming vets like Nickeh30, Muselk, Toripareno from Luminosity Gaming, and more.
How Do I Enter TikTok’s Gamers Got Talent?
Unfortunately, if you want to be a part of this new platform-wide search, you’ve missed the deadline. The window of opportunity lasted from April 27th to May 2nd, so you’re out of luck! But still, you’ll be able to sift through the hashtag and check out the contenders for the grand prize before one of them will be crowned the ultimate champ.
TikTok is proving itself to be the next best home for gaming content and a haven for streamers showing off their best clips. But who knows, you might not even need the competition- get uploading your stream highlights, and you could become TikTok gaming’s next biggest star even without their help.
