PUBG Corporation has announced it is launching the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Console Carnage League – the first ever PUBG console community league in Europe.
The tournament is being hosted online on October 18th and 25th, and November 1st and 8th. Qualifiers will be running from October 7th to 9th.
The event is open to players on PlayStation, Xbox and Stadia, and will be held in a league format with 16 matches taking place over four weeks.
At the end of the competition, the roster with the highest number of points wins.
The action will be live on the PUBG Europe Twitch channel, casted and observed by UK PUBG YouTubers and streamers The Beard Guys.
PUBG Corporation is also inviting its community to vote on various aspects of the battle royale tournament, such as whether it hosts duo or squad matches, and which additional maps will be played on.
The team members from the winning roster will each receive a 4K 27″ UHD monitor. The second placed roster players will each win a SCUF Gaming Performance Controller of their choice, while third placed finishers will be gifted PUBG merchandise.
The UK has a strong background in competitive console gaming, with talent in the likes of Call of Duty, FIFA, Street Fighter and more, so it’ll be interesting to see which teams and players emerge from this new community competition.
At the top level, PUBG has a host of esports tournaments including the PUBG Continental Series.
