FACEIT is set to officially launch PUBG on the platform on September 28th in Europe, North America and South America. The launch comes after an extremely popular closed beta that started in August, which saw over 200,000 players sign up. With its online competitive leagues and partner tournament organizers, the FACEIT platform will deliver the first structured progression system for competitive PUBG, setting a new standard for competition within the battle royale genre.
To celebrate the launch, FACEIT is going to reward the first player to reach 338 Chicken Dinners with an iconic FIAT 500.
PUBG on FACEIT offers players organised online leagues with a clear progression system to get them noticed by talent scouts and major team organizations. PUBG on FACEIT also offers region lock, the latest game competitive settings with faster zones and adjusted loot and a solid anti-cheat system. Players can also earn FACEIT points while playing, which can be exchanged in the FACEIT Shop for valuable in-game items such as weapon skins and crate keys.
“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,” says Niccolo Maisto, CEO of FACEIT. “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.”
“The FACEIT integration offers our community a uniquely competitive framework to play PUBG at a level they haven’t experienced before. The closed beta proved the value of our partnership, and we can’t wait to watch the competitive scene develop further,” said Hyowon Yoo, Head of Business Development and Operations, NA/EU, PUBG Corporation.
PUBG’s successful integration into the FACEIT platform provides players, partners and organizers with the opportunity to create competitions, tournaments and leagues that feature customizable server settings, instant lobby creation and automatic stats and results fetching.
