According to a blog post on the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds website, the event will be split into two sessions for each regions with 128 streamers participating in total. Each session will host 64 players in duos mode only, which works out to 32 teams per region. After each region completes a three-match set, the winner will be chosen based on highest overall placement.
All money raised during the event will go to Gamers Outreach, an organization dedicated to providing “equipment, technology, and software” to children in hospitals.
“Ever since I started the Battle Royale game mode back in Arma 2, I have always wanted to use my game mode to help those in need when possible.”
