PUBG Corp, following up the announcement last month of the PUBG Global Invitational (PGI 2018) esports tournament, announced today the PGI North America Qualifier that will determine the three teams to represent North America at PGI 2018. The qualifier will have a prize pool of $150,000 to be split between the top 20 teams.
While Fortnite is mucking around with Disney tie-ins, Player Unknown’s BattleGrounds is focusing on the professional aspect of battle royale gaming. This is the second esports tournament announced in the last month and chances are there are more to come since this is a qualifier for the larger tournament. There will be other qualifiers around the world. The North American qualifier is for (surprise) the United States, Canada and Mexico.
