WHAT: Today Red Bull announced a brand-new gaming content series, uncovering the thrilling and extraordinary underground esports communities – “Other Worlds” – alongside the debut of the official trailer. Hosted by Red Bull gaming athlete and well-known speedrunner David “GrandPOOBear” Hunt, the nine-episode series highlights less popularized and unconventional competitive gaming, and the passionate gamers that continue to fuel their respective spaces. Episode one, which spotlights the emergence of the “Hades” speedrunning scene and one of the most wholesome communities in all of gaming, will premiere Tuesday, April 26th at 9 a.m. PT on the official Red Bull Gaming YouTube Channel, with additional episodes uncovering new game titles launching monthly.
 
Just a few games get the vast majority of esports coverage, but there are countless gaming scenes fans rarely hear about. In “Other Worlds” hosted be GrandPOOBear, viewers will get a deep dive into unconventionally competitive gaming scenes and uncover the incredible communities that drive gaming at every level. GrandPOOBear will meet the people and players in the scene, learn how the communities formed and finally take a whack at learning the meta that drives the competition for each game.
 
GrandPOOBear is a Red Bull Player and professional speedrunner, with popular channels across Twitch and YouTube. He was previously a semi-pro snowboarder, when a career-ending spinal injury put him in the hospital. During his year-long recovery, GrandPOOBear discovered his talent for speedrunning video games. Since then, he's continually pushed the level of speedrunning competition forward as a 7-time world record holder. GrandPOOBear has amassed a loyal following and carved a name for himself as an innovative, charitable trailblazer within the growing speedrunning community.
 
This new series is part of Red Bull’s larger upcoming slate of gaming content launching throughout 2022, including this month’s premiere of the analytics focused content series – Analytics of Daigo’s Guile in SFV – in partnership with Panda Global’s PGstats.com. Viewers can watch Red Bull Gaming content series on the official Red Bull Gaming YouTube channel and Red Bull TV.
