Filip, who’s competed in the World Championship Finals and Stanley Cup Finals, is an avid player of popular video games such as NHL, FIFA, and, to varied success, Fortnite. He explains, “My love of gaming probably started back when I played Sonic and NHL 94 on SEGA. Gaming for me is a way to relax and socialize with friends. When I am gaming, I like to wear a good headset to immerse myself into the game, so it’s great to team-up with HyperX, which is known for creating quality products for PC and most recently console, as PS4 is my main platform.”
Filip will join HyperX’s global campaign, “We’re All Gamers,” which launched in Europe earlier this year and has already received over 165 million impressions. Filip will join the animated gaming spirits of Post Malone and Marco Reus who transform into gaming spirits with unique powers inspired by their real-life features and talents.
