According to the infographic, a total of 32 teams from across the globe will be vying for the US$2 million prize pool. Admittedly, it’s nowhere near tournaments like Dota 2‘s International, but it’s still a very tidy sum. There will be 4 teams each from North America, Europe, Korea and China, 3 from Southeast Asia, and 2 each from Chinese Taipei, Japan, Latin America and Oceania. The remaining 5 slots are wild cards, reserved for the top regions from each of the 3 PUBG Classic events.

They’ve also laid out some details for the PUBG Southeast Asia Championship series, which will run in three seasons.

Each season will comprise of 16 teams from the SEA region duking it out for a US$50,000 prize pool and a place at the global championships.

Make sure to note April 16th down on your calendar, as this will be the first global PUBG event for the year. It will be held in London, featuring a sizable prize pool of US$400,000.
