Ever wish you could sentence that obnoxious camper to a day of real bootcamp? That’s not too far from the plot of The Controller, a new Battlefield 3-based reality show that pits six of the world’s most elite gamers, including pros like TSquared (Thomas Taylor) and Mrs Violence (Kelly Kelley), against a slew of brutal physical challenges.
To be clear, The Controller isn’t all about obstacles courses. With a $50,000 prize on the line, each pro will also have to coach a complete gaming amateur through a series of Battlefield 3 challenges – all without ever touching the controller themselves. Check out the clip below for a preview of the action:
The first episode of The Controller is set to air this Friday, October 21, at 11pm PST. Tune in to GameSpot's official YouTube channel for a new episode every week through December 9.
