PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is growing more and more as an esport, and now G:loot has announced a Global Loot League with a $50,000 USD prize pool as part of a regular season featuring 80 top teams, with qualifiers starting on February 2 and running until the end of April.
"Last year we entered a partnership to explore the world of PUBG. We saw the potential with the early adopters, quickly realizing this game had a clear potential to become one of the biggest esports titles in the world. It turns out we were right about that," said Simon Sundén, VP and Head of esports at GLL.
"Now anyone, anywhere in the world will have a chance to qualify for the regular season with all the pro teams, we're also proud to announce that there will be much more at stake than just the glory," he continued. "All the regular season matches will be played every Wednesday both for the European and North American divisions. Everything will be broadcasted live from Stockholm in a brand-new studio, driven by the same production team that the community praised during the pre-season. This time we'll add more production resources to bring it up a notch and do it even better."
The league will be broadcast on Twitch, with the grand final weekend happening on April 22 to 24. For more on G:loot, though, check out their official website, and you can register for the tournament here. Will you be trying to compete?
