An invitational tournament cup commencing this Thursday May 4, 2017 will feature 128 live-streamers from around the world in a PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds bracket of epic proportions. Each region plays three matches leading up to the final three match event which will all be tracked and totaled factoring out the top players who can be named champions. Bluehole, Inc. has remained vigilant in their stance of keeping the connection running smoothly during matches, stating “all participants can play on servers with the least ping possible, and to ensure as fair a match as possible for all involved.”
The event will benefit a charity selected by the developer, “We have chosen Gamers Outreach as our first charity, as the work they do to provide equipment, technology, and software to help kids cope with treatment inside hospitals is something I think is well worth supporting.”
The developer announced that this Invitational Battlegrounds Charity Event had raised $123,559 which the developer will match totaling the amount given to charity at $247,118.
Developer Quote: “In celebration of reaching 2 million games sold, Bluehole will be matching every dollar contributed up to $100,000! Help unlock these funds by spreading the word and making a donation to the campaign!”
“Today, I am delighted to announce we will be continuing to help those that need it with PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, and are hosting our first charity invitational next week, on Thursday May 4th. We have chosen Gamers Outreach as our first charity, as the work they do to provide equipment, technology, and software to help kids cope with treatment inside hospitals is something I think is well worth supporting.”
