These eight games will be played at the 2022 Asian Games:
- Arena of Valor Asian Games Version
- Dota 2
- Dream Three Kingdoms 2
- League of Legends
- PUBG Mobile Asian Games Version
- Street Fighter V
Additionally, there will be two demonstration events, being the AESF Robot Masters and the AESF VR Sports.
For those who have a faint memory of esports already being a part of the Olympics: Esports was a demonstration discipline at the 18th Asian Games in Indonesia in 2018. The medals there did not count in the official medal rankings and Dota 2 was not a part of that demonstration.
It is not clear yet who will participate at the event and what the qualifying process looks like. The Asian Games will take place from 10-25 September 2022 in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.
Which Dota players do you want to see compete in the 2022 Asian Games?
