Last year in 2018, DreamHack held a successful tournament and event in Mumbai. DreamHack is returning to India in 2019, hosted in Delhi. DreamHack is not just an ordinary gaming tournament, it's a place for gamers to gather and celebrate the festivities in the gaming world.

The event will be held between 6 December and 8 December at the NSIC Exhibition Grounds, Okhla, New Delhi. DreamHack events not only contain gaming events, they also host cosplays, live music, streamer zones, comedy shows and more.

We're going to take a look at what gaming events are being held in DreamHack 2019. Here are the different events DreamHack 2019 will entail.

Casual Participants can earn a share from a total prize pool of ₹1.5 Lakhs.
