For those unfamiliar with PubG, it stands for “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” and is a massive multiplayer title that is extremely popular online. Developed and published by Bluehole, it is currently available for PC but plans to port the game to the PS4 and Xbox One consoles are underway. Players engage in life-like environments with the goal of killing off enemy players, without getting eliminated themselves. The game was initially released in an early access phase for Steam users and over four million copies had been sold in just under three months, a fact that lends evidence to its success as an esports title.
The game has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from stream viewers as per donations for organizations such as the Gamers Outreach Foundation to celebrate the product’s success. As such, we’re pretty eager to see how the invitational turns out this Saturday, and we hope you share in that eagerness!
See you this Saturday! In the meantime, follow this blog and the pages below to stay informed on all news regarding the StreamMe PubG Invitational.
