The battle royale game “Playerunknown's Battlegrounds”, or “PUBG” for short, wants to make it big. A separate World Cup for the game will be launched in 2019. Professional esports teams are fighting for a place in the Global Championships next November.

The professional players shoot each other in nine independent regions: North America, Europe, Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Southeast Asia, Latin America and Oceania.

The season runs throughout the year and is divided into three phases. The first phase is scheduled to start in January, the second in April and the last in August. In these phases, all participating teams will play simultaneously for a starting place for the World Cup, which will take place in November 2019.

Two global tournaments are planned between the individual regional phases, in which the best from the respective regions compete against each other. Before the final phase, an all-star tournament is to take place, in which the most popular "PUBG" players and streamers engage in a virtual struggle for survival for fun.

Clear rules and high prize money

The rules are already set: A game contains 16 teams, each consisting of four players. The view is the first person perspective and the Miramar and Erangel cards are selectable. In addition, there are uniform system settings for all players.

Each region has the opportunity to send a team to the big showdown at the end of the year. The winner deserves the title of the world's best “PUBG” team and a large sum of at least two million US dollars. Viewers can follow the whole thing on the “Twitch” streaming platform.
