'Video Game High School' Final Season Trailer Teases Big Laughs, Even Bigger Effects
The gaming ends Oct. 13
Freddie Wong plans to end his YouTube series with a bang.
The trailer for the third and final season of Video Game High School promises to be the most action-packed season yet.
The series, set in a fictional world where video gaming is the biggest competitive sport in the world, picks up in the halls of elite gaming academy Video Game High School, where competitive gamer Brian D (Josh Blaylock) is gearing up for a showdown against Napalm Energy Drink High School. But rivalries, relationships and tragedy threaten Brian and his group of friends.
The trailer, which teases explosions, car chases and even a CGI dragon, tips its hat to popular video game genres, including car-racing games, adventure quests and first-person shooters. The final VGHS season will also feature a number of celebrity cameos, including Conan O'Brien.
Wong, co-creator of Rocket Jump Studios along with Matt Arnold, is known for his effects-heavy style. He broke a web-series crowdfunding record in February when he raised more than $900,000 on Indiegogo to finance the third season of VGHS. In total, RocketJump, which has more than 6 million subscribers, videos have accumulated more than 1 billion views.
VGHS is produced by Rocket Jump Studios and Collective Digital Studio.
The final season debuts Oct. 13 on YouTube.
