Vivo partners with PUBG for PUBG MOBILE Open Club 2019, to offer $2.5 million as prize money


UBG MOBILE has undergone a substantial amount of controversy in the last few months. The game rose to immense popularity and impressed the critics on both Android and iOS platforms. However, at the same time, PUBG MOBILE has also been gathering a lot of criticism for its involvement in spoiling children’s attention on academics as well as even affecting grown-ups. That said, PUBG MOBILE is increasingly coming across as a platform for pro gamers with various e-sports events. And now, there’s more good news on this front.

PUBG MOBILE is hosting the Open Club 2019 eSports event in association with Vivo. The 2019 event is offering up to $2.5 million prize money, which is the biggest amount in any PUBG MOBILE event so far. The tournament has been divided into the Spring Split and the Fall Split. The Spring Split Global Finals will take place in July 2019 with the Fall Split taking place later in December.

“We are excited to partner with Vivo, as they have a strong reputation in being innovative and putting the consumer’s needs first. As an innovative brand ourselves, this partnership highlights our dedication to bring the best experience possible to our players and fans around the world. This partnership is just the beginning, we want to continue building a strong portfolio of partnerships with industry-leading companies, such as Vivo, to provide the best mobile gaming experience possible,” said Vincent Wang, General Manager of Global Publishing Department, Tencent Games.

While promoting its eSports events, PUBG MOBILE is also catering to its loyal players across the globe. The game has recently got the latest beta update that adds a couple of features to make the gameplay more exciting as well as fix older bugs. The most noticeable change in the new beta version is the inclusion of dynamic weather. Players will now be able to experience witness weather changes while playing in Erangel and Miramar. Similar to the PC and console version, the mobile version will offer a variation of weather between sunny skies to rains, thereby making it challenging for players to keep a vigil on surroundings. Apart from the dynamic weather, the Tukshai 3-wheeler has finally come to PUBG MOBILE.
