We know that esports punters are always interested in what is available when it comes to PUBG betting, and the good news for them, as well as fans of the game, is that PUBG Corportation has announced a new partnership with esports tournament organisers DreamHack for a brand new PUBG tournament for players in North and Latin America.

The tournament will stand alongside the DreamHack PUBG Showdown Winter Europe event that gets underway on the 30th November with the Open Qualifiers. This will be fully open to all teams in Europe willing to participate, with a 384-team cap. Sixteen teams from the qualifiers will earn themselves a place in the Stage 1 finals, played over two days from the 7th to 8th December.

Stage 2 will follow with 7 teams advancing from Stage 1 to join the 17 teams already seeded into Stage 2. From there fourteen teams will progress into the finals played from the 18th to 20th December which will include two invited teams, who were the winners of previous seasons.

Americas expansion

The expansion into the Americas will feature two separate tournaments, one for North American teams and one for Latin American teams. Both begin with Round 1, which will see 80 teams in North America and 64 teams in Latin America competing to become one of the 32 best teams to advance into the second round of the competition.

The first round in these two new tournaments starts on the 28th November for Latin America and on the 2nd December for North America.

In both new tournaments, the second round begins on the 5th December and will see the 32 qualifiers competing against each other over two days to try and earn one of eight qualifying spots for the third round.

The third round starts on the 9th December in Latin America and the 11th December in North America and will feature 16 seeded teams alongside the eight that qualify from the second round. These teams will battle it out across 18 maps to whittle them down to the 10 best teams to advance to the finals from North America and the six best from Latin America.

At this point, the two tournaments then merge with the 16 finalists from both North and Latin America competing against each other in the finals to decide who will take home the lion’s share of the $15,000 prize pool.

A competitive edge

The expansion of the PUBG DreamHack Winter Showdown into North and Latin America is an attempt to boost the competition available for teams in that region towards the end of the year, when the schedule has looked a little barren as most of the top events have finished their seasons at this point.

The matches from the tournament will be available to watch on live streams from PUBG’s Corporation’s official streaming channels on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch.

The announcement confirms that PUBG and DreamHack will continue to work together after doing so successfully at a number of other top esports events, including the DreamHack Open Austin 2018 tournament.
