PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has increased in prominence over the past year, with multiple esports tournaments cropping up around the world as battle royale fever kicks in.
It's a last-man-standing shooter. Starting with nothing, players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a battle to be the lone survivor. This realistic, high tension game is set across a few huge maps with players able to hide, explore and hunt down their enemies.
Last week, the PUBG Global Invitational (PGI) took place in Berlin, with Gen.G Gold taking first place in the third-person competition, Team OMG winning the first-person tournament and Team Papa winning the Charity Showdown.
