ESL Gaming has announced another edition into the Playerunknown's Battlegrounds tournament, DreamHack PUBG Showdown. Set to take place as an all-online event, the winter-edition tournament will feature a $45,000 prize pool, and will expand to include North America and Latin America on top of Europe.
Mike Van Driel, SVP, Game Management at ESL Gaming said; "It feels great to announce another instalment of our popular PUBG tournament. This year's previous two tournaments have been really appreciated which makes it all the more exciting to end the year by expanding into two new regions with our biggest prize pool so far."
The DreamHack PUBG Showdown Winter will be split across two different formats, Europe and the Americas. While sharing many similarities, the European side will feature 16 EU-based teams in the Grand Finals, whereas the Americas will have 10 teams from NA, and 6 from LATAM. Both Grand Finals events will take place between December 18-20, with $15,000 of the $45,000 prize pool allocated to the Americas.
