The Toyota Gaming Engine has created a platform for this year’s FIFA 22 tournament that puts thumbs, the unsung heroes of gaming, on centre stage. Thumbderdome: Battle of the Opposables is a FIFA competition that immerses gamers into a world of thumbs, complete with match thumb commentators - or thumbentators - Sam "Tech Girl" Wright and Glen Biderman-Pam, as well as thumb training content and pro tips from some of SA’s professional FIFA players.
In the tournament, players will have to thumb through their opposition for the Grand Prize of R30 000 cash, with R20 000 and R10 000 going to 2nd and 3rd place, respectively.
