Enter “Mission: Galaxy” a next-level mobile gaming tournament with a futuristic creative direction that showcased the new Samsung device’s advanced technology and features. Pairing the Galaxy S23 Ultra with eight of the most popular Tribe creators, we brought to life the ultimate battle. Tribe Gaming echoed our creative direction across their channels and released a series of unique unboxing social videos to raise hype in the run-up to the event.  On the day of the event, the tournament featuring eight Tribe competitors was live-streamed across the platform, with content amplified by Tribe Gaming’s vast social community to increase viewership. The livestream itself also included midroll content during “intermission” there were unique “ads” Tribe created with Samsung approval, and Samsung also provided some of their product ads to include in the block.


The $15,000 1v1 tournament is available to view online.
