Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Columbia Pictures and Twitch, have teamed up to create an epic showdown.  On September 19, from 4pm until 6pm PST, you can tune in to Twitch for a live Counter-Strike: GO exhibition game.  Fans can join in on the action as seven of the top CS:GO gamers test their skills as Saviors vs. Bandits through a special Western-themed map.

Airing live on Twitch as well as on www.Mag7Showdown.com, the event will allow viewers to interact with the seven gamers and suggest handicaps as they battle each other to become the last gamer standing. To the victor go the bragging rights on an epic gun battle.

Hosted by GoldenBoy, along with commentator John “Blu” Mullenm, the live stream will feature Twitch’s “Magnificent Seven” broadcasters Summit 1G, TimTheTatman, iiJERiiCHOii, HayliNic, JoshOG, Reynad27, and 2MGOverCSquared.  The live event will also include special messages from film stars Chris Pratt and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as well as exclusive footage from the film.

Elias Plishner, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Digital Marketing for Sony Pictures, had this to say about the event:

Twitch has never before brought so many respected and skilled gamers with such a huge following together for a single game. As these seven face off, this is an unparalleled opportunity to bring the action, intensity and fun of The Magnificent Seven to millions of fans worldwide.
