UK esports organisation Radiant Esports have announced they are making a world record attempt.
They are aiming to break the record for the 'longest video livestream' which currently stands at 153 hours.
Radiant will be hosting a whopping 13-day livestream at House of Gamers in Birmingham.
This event will take place from Friday April 5th at 6pm to Wednesday April 17th at 8pm, which means the stream will be around 290 hours - almost double the existing record.
Radiant clarified on Twitter that various standards are required to break the world record for the longest stream. For example, one is that there are at least two representatives throughout the entire livestream taking shifts.
The livestream promises to feature a line-up of more than 40 individuals.
More details will be announced soon.
