BOSTON BREACH ANNOUNCE TICKETS ARE ON SALE FOR CALL OF DUTY LEAGUE MAJOR II & CHALLENGERS TOURNAMENT

ICONIC FENWAY PARK WILL HOST CHALLENGERS TOURNAMENT IN STATE STREET PAVILION

Oxygen Esports (OXG), the owners of the Boston Breach, are excited to announce that tickets are now on-sale for both Call of Duty League™ (CDL) Major II and the second event of this year's installment of CDL's amateur circuit, Call of Duty ® Challengers. The Breach and Fenway Sports Management are thrilled to share that Boston's second Challengers tournament will be hosted at the State Street Pavilion inside one of America's most iconic sports venues, Fenway Park .

"Growing up just outside of Boston , it is surreal to have the opportunity to host an event inside of Fenway Park," said Co-founder of Oxygen Esports Jack Vandervelde. "Given the significance of Fenway and Lansdowne Street in Boston sports legacy, it is fitting that Boston's coronation as an esports destination takes place on these storied grounds."

Fenway Park , the home of the Boston Red Sox since 1912, is the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball and one of the most famous sports venues in the world. In recent years Fenway Park has expanded its entertainment offerings, hosting the NHL Winter Classic, NCAA Football Bowl Games, concerts and many other interactive entertainment experiences.

"Bringing new and unique events to Fenway Park has been part of our ownership group's mission for the past 20 years," said Senior Vice President of Fenway Park Events Carrie Campbell . "There is no doubt esports competitions like the Call of Duty League Challengers circuit will play a big part of the events business moving forward, and we are pleased to welcome competitors and fans alike to Fenway for a first time."

This will be the first esports event to take place inside Fenway Park . With the addition of the new MGM Music Hall just steps away from Fenway Park and the wide array of hospitality offerings in proximity, Fenway Park is a world class destination for esports events.

To buy tickets for the Call of Duty League™ Major II at MGM Music Hall, while supplies last, visit the event information page on Ticketmaster .

STABILITY AI PARTNERS WITH KRIKEY AI TO LAUNCH AI ANIMATION TOOLS

An AI Text to Animation tool that generates 3D, animated, interactive characters

A new AI Experience lets users generate animations in minutes

Krikey.ai, an AI tools company, announced an AI Animation partnership with Stability AI today. Krikey's AI Text to Animation tool enables users to use a text phrase to generate avatar animations in minutes. Users can then export a video file or fbx file to their social media account, 3D game engine or film editing software of choice. Krikey's tool also allows users to customize their 3D Avatar and then generate an AI animation for that avatar. The AI Animation tool launches today and is available at www.krikey.ai more Avatar customization features will be launching this quarter.

Usually an animation takes 5+ business days to create, but with Krikey's AI tool it takes minutes to generate. The animations are mobile optimized and also immediately usable in AR. This AI to AR pipeline empowers creators and democratizes content creation. AI can never imbue a character with emotion so the role of artist and animator remains the same in the production pipeline. Creators and developers can visit www.krikey.ai to generate their own AI animations today.

"Stability is always seeking out AI innovators and the Krikey team has put together one of the best tools to democratize creative expression. Now anyone can animate a 3D character with a few words in a text box ," said Emad Mostaque , CEO of Stability AI. "We are excited to support the Krikey AI team and work together to empower the next generation of AI creators and developers."

In Krikey's AI Tool, users will be able to explore and try a set of basic motion prompts including variations on walk, run, jump, wave, climb and more. The website www.krikey.ai has a prompt guide to help guide users enter and experiment in the world of AI Animation. More complex prompts like moonwalk, zombie march and tai chi also lead to engaging results. Generated animations can be seen in the dashboard within your account and users can download video files or fbx files. Within the animation tool, users can also change the camera angle, add or remove shadows, backgrounds, change the animation speed and customize their Avatar before exporting to share with friends.

"This is the beginning of a revolution in how 3D content will be created ," said Ketaki Shriram , Co-founder and CTO at Krikey.ai. "Generative AI Animations have applications in numerous industries including film, gaming, metaverse avatars, social media and cloud computing. AI Animation could be the foundation of the next creator economy."
