PUBG Mobile Star Challenge Prizes
PUBG Mobile offers exciting awards for streamers. The game developer will use in-house funding to promote those who succeeded on the battlefield. There are even official PUBG Mobile contracts available.
Although the exposure is already a great offer, the prize money is still better. PUBG is offering a remarkable $600,000 prize money all in all. The company was able to gather such amount from sponsors and, of course, with the help of their partner Samsung Galaxy Note 9. To strengthen the partnership, Tencent made sure that the PUBG Mobile can be played on the Samsung Galaxy Apps.
If you’re a Samsung phone user, you can now download two of the most popular games today – PUBG Mobile and Fortnite – via the Samsung app store. You can always get the game via the Google Play Store, but having it in the Samsung app only means the mobile giant continues their push into the mobile gaming era.
The regional semi-finals are already underway so don’t be late.
