Competitive platform Faceit and PUBG Corp. have announced that they've partnered to launch the latter's game on Faceit, with a closed beta starting this Friday. According to the press release "the Faceit platform will deliver a structured progression system for competitive PUBG, setting a new standard for competition within the battle royale genre, and igniting the PUBG community."
PUBG joins a number of other big games on the platform, and this new deal will provide players, organisers, and more to create competitions using Faceit, as well as customise server settings and gather stats. As for Faceit, this is just more good news for them this year, as after hosting successful Minor competitions last month they'll be hosting a CS:GO Major in London in September.
"PUBG is one of the most successful video games of all time, and riding on the wave of the recent success of the PUBG Global Invitational, we are looking forward to the opportunity of playing a role in the development of its competitive scene. It has an incredibly devoted and talented fanbase, and we're in a unique position to provide the community limitless opportunities to progress their skills and play competitively at a whole new level. We worked closely with PUBG to develop the integration and ensure players have a truly seamless experience," says Niccolo Maisto, CEO of Faceit. "Faceit's integration offers players, of all levels, a clear and motivating progression system. We're absolutely thrilled to welcome PUBG players to the Faceit community, and can't wait to watch the leagues develop."
