Achievement Unlocked is our way of celebrating the talented, passionate, and dedicated gamers in Singapore from all walks of life." Says MyRepublic Singapore managing director Lawrence Chan.
"This platform aims to provide recognition and rewards to gamers, many of whom have accomplished some truly astonishing feats beyond esports. Achievement Unlocked will also see us collaborating with local gaming content creators in order to spotlight their work to the community.”
Achievement Unlocked will be open to all Singaporeans and Singapore residents, regardless of age. Participants will have to submit their entries in the form of screenshots, photos or videos, posted on either Facebook or Instagram and tagging @myrepublicgamersg.
