The partnership comes out from the closed beta they ran in August. More than 200,000 players signed up to get involved and were excited about the new direction for the battle royale game.
PUBG players are about to get a far more enriching competitive experience with a partnership with FACEIT. This partnership brings PUBG to the FACEIT platform where players can signup to get involved with a new progression system, competitive scene, and partner-sponsored tournaments.
The progression system should make it easier for talent agencies to seek out the truly gifted players, streamlining the process to get them on a competitive team and fighting in the official tournaments. The FACEIT platform also makes it easier for organizations to create their own tournaments on customized servers and invite select attendees.
Niccolo Maisto, the CEO of FACEIT, had this to say:
“Whilst we anticipated high levels of success with the closed beta, we were blown away by the positive feedback and the number of sign-ups. The integration we developed with PUBG allows players to be in a match within seconds and we’re excited to welcome everyone on the platform to jump in and experience our competitive battleground. PUBG is continually proving its fierce potential as an esport, and we’re thrilled to be a part of that exciting journey by offering players unprecedented opportunities to develop their skills.”
To celebrate the launch of the partnership, FACEIT is rewarding the first player to earn 338 chicken dinners with a FIAT 500. Join in on the FACEIT platform to enter the competition and put your survival skills to the test!
