It’s no secret that Deadmau5 is a big gamer, he regularly streams games of PUBG and even has some cosmetic items on Rocket League — so it’ll come as no surprise that he’s developing his own first-person shooter.
His own game, which is being developed on the popular Unreal Engine, is currently in alpha testing phase, according to the producer.
The outspoken Canadian producer recently revealed that he plans to open his own LAN/gaming centre in Canada where gamers can come and play games with him, too.
Deadmau5 has won $20,000 in a charity tournament based on the online battle royale game ‘PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds’.
He was one of a number of people to compete in the tournament, taking part alongside a team of fans captained by esports organisation Cloud9, YouTubers The Try Guys and streamer Jericho.
The money has been donated to Extra Life which raises money to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in the US. The tournament took place at the newly-opened OGN Super Arena in California.
