Bursting into the Esports scene in the late 1990s as Founding CEO of ESL, the world’s largest Esports company, and later founding Esports investment platform ‘BITKRAFT’, Jens is joining So Couch Studios as an advisor to fuel the company’s vision for a competitive MMORPG experience and Ember Sword Esports scene.

Jens is an Esports godfather and a gaming pioneer with paramount insight into the competitive nature of games, and his knowledge and experience will end up greatly benefiting players of Ember Sword.”, said Mark Laursen, CEO and Founder at So Couch Studios.
Through on-going PvP and PvE events built directly into the game’s core, any fearless Ember Sword player will be able to compete to acquire new limited-supply collectible cosmetic items every month.
The cosmetics players win through these events can be worn in-game or sold to other players for the game’s premium currency, which can also either be used or sold.
Combined with skill-based gameplay without predatory Pay-to-Win systems and “surprise mechanics”, the company believes this will foster a new genre of small-scale Esports that is accessible for everyone.
“Ember Sword captures that magic blend of PvP-focussed RPG combat and a true persistent open world served in a format that is easily accessible across multiple platforms.
A hard design and technology-challenge that I firmly believe the team is able to deliver on. Excited to contribute my esports experience!”, said Jens Hilgers.
