MWEB GameZone Masters Series Cape Town Call of Duty Ghosts LAN

Cape Town LAN

MWEB GameZone’s Call of Duty Ghosts Masters Series hits its first LAN event on 5 and 6 April. The two day LAN tournament is set to happen in Cape Town, and will see the group stages on the Saturday, followed by knockouts on Sunday.

We’re pretty pleased to say that along with a number of other major players in the gaming industry (MWEB themselves, Xbox SA and Gunnar) in South Africa, we’re part of the sponsors. Not too bad for a bunch of grumpy zombies, but proof that a human/zombie alliance is a very real possibility.
