Valve’s ‘Free to Play’ Documents First Million-Dollar Gaming Tournament
A dark horse in a gaming race dominated by home consoles, Valve Corporation is one of the largest video game developers in the world. Seeking to validate the burgeoning world of professional gaming, Valve has produced a documentary following the lives of three gamers in their quest to win an international tournament. A million-dollar purse complicates the film – titled Free to Play – as the gamers not only battle each other, but the societal stigmas against gaming in pop culture. Enjoy the trailer above, while interested parties in the Bay Area can attend the documentary premiere next month.
