PUBG Details $2 Million Global Championship
PUBG Corporation mapped out the inaugural season of its global pro competition for PlayerUnknown’s Battleground with nine regions now locked in to compete to reach the Global Championship at the end of the season and become the world’s greatest PUBG squad.
Beginning in January, the inaugural season will feature three Phases, with every regional competition beginning and ending within the same windows of time. After Phases 1 and 2, the top teams from each region will compete head-to-head in third-party-hosted global events, followed by a global All-Star Games. At the end of Phase 3, the top-performing teams throughout the season will gather for a Global Championship where the survivors will have a shot at a $2 million prize pool.
Regions will include North America, Korea, China, Europe/Middle East/Africa, Japan, Chinese Taipei/Hong Kong/Macau, Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Oceania – competing under universal rules, games settings, and points systems. Sixteen four-member squads will fight in first person perspective games across Miramar and Erangel.
