PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is an online multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation. The game that defined the battle royale genre in 2017 received multiple game of the year nominations and also won the Best Multiplayer Game of the Year at the 2017 Game Awards.
In the game, one could set up huge multiplayer matches with up to a hundred players on a single PUBG map. The primary objective of the battle royale mode would be to become the last person standing by eliminating the opponents on an isolated island, who like the player are parachuted onto the place. However, things get interesting over time as the playable area constantly shrinks due to the presence of a powerful field, effectively enforcing faster pace and increased battle scenes towards the end of the game. In-game loot and supply drops allow the player in PUBG to replenish ammo and other supplies to stay competitive in the game.
The company behind the franchise has expressed PUBG to become a popular game for Esports and has set up a slew of tournaments to encourage the same. The first-ever PUBG stadium event organised by Intel in November 2017 featured a record prize of $200,000. PUBG has four versions now, PUBG PC, PUBG Mobile, PUBG Xbox and PUBG PS4. Recently, PUBG laid a year long plan when they announced PUBG Mobile Club Open 2019. The PUBG Esports tournament will be held all over the word with the finals scheduled to be held at year end.
Recently, Tencent Games and PUBG Corp. has announced another PUBG Mobile tournament in India called the PUBG Mobile India Tour 2019.
