We’re finally getting more details about the upcoming PUBG Global Championship 2022. This is the premier esports event that crowns the overall champions of the 2022 PUBG Esports season. It will be a global in-person LAN tournament from November 1 to November 20, and the top 32 professional PUBG Esports teams worldwide will fight for a large share of the $2 million prize pool.

In addition to the prize pool, there’s also the MVP of the PGC 2022, which receives an additional $10,000. The tournament will also involve fans with the Pick’em Challenge, an event for fans to predict the winner of the tournament and win prizes. Aside from earning free voting coupons, fans can also buy PGC 2022 items through the in-game esports tab. Similar to what was done with PUBG Nations Cup 2022, 30% of the profit from the Pick’em Challenge is added to the prize pool.
