Taking the Steam charts by storm, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has redefined multiplayer online combat and taken it to a new level. PUBG’s “Battle Royale” style game mode has caught the hearts of millions of gamers as they try to get that sweet, sweet “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner”.
As the game sits on the top of the Steam charts daily and has recently become the first non-Valve game to have the most concurrent players on the platform, it was only a matter of time before PUBG made its way into E-Sports competitions.
