The winner of the PUBG Southeast Asian Championship will go to the PUBG Global Invitational in Berlin.
Just a few months after saying that PUBG wasn’t esports ready yet, Brendan Greene seems to have given into the demands of the fans of the game. PUBG yesterday announced that they will be hosting the first ever PUBG Global Invitational tournament, which will see 20 teams from around the world battle it out for a $2 million prize pool.
The tournament will take place in Berlin in July, with third-person matches taking place on July 25-26 and first-person matches taking place on July 28-29. There will be a winner for each of the perspective mode, with a prize pool totaling $2 million. But before that, the SEA fans will get to prove their mettle in the PUBG Southeast Asia Championship.
This tournament is officially sanctioned by the PUBG Corp. and will be the lead up to the PUBG Global Invitational, and the overall winner and the Thai National Champions will get to represent the region in Berlin in July.
