PUBG Corporation has revealed details around its next premier esports event, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS Continental Series 3 (PCS3). PCS3 consists of four regional tournaments across Europe, North America, Asia, and Asia-Pacific. Each of the teams will fight for the right to be crowned their region’s Grand Champions and to win a share of the $200,000 USD regional prize pool (a total of $800,000 USD winnings across all regions).
Prior to the PCS3 Grand Final, each region will host their own qualification round. The PCS3 Europe Group Stage takes place from October 13-18, with matches starting from 18:00 CEST. During the Group Stage, 24 top teams – including previous PCS winners FaZe Clan, TSM and Northern Lights – will battle it out for one of 16 places in the Grand Final and a share of the $200,000 prize fund. PUBG esports fans can watch all the PCS3 Europe Group Stage action on Twitch and YouTube – where they will be joined by expert Talents James ‘Kaelaris’ Carrol, Steven ‘Toffees’ Pierce, Martin ‘Avnqr’ Gøth, Patrick ‘Frosz’ lu, Tobias ‘TheNameIsToby’ Wiinblad, Richard ‘TheSimms’ Simms and Michael ‘hypoc’ Robins.
