PUBG Takes Top Prize in 2017 Korean Game Awards

PlayerUnknown Scores Six Prizes at Korean Game Awards!

PUBG is an unprecedented worldwide sensation – and version 1.0 isn’t even out yet! But while Western gamers debate whether it deserves a Game of the Year Award, that discussion is over in Korea… Just last night, developer Bluehole Studios took home six prizes at the Korean Game Awards! In addition to titles ranging from ‘Best Developer’ to ‘Game Business Innovation,’ PUBG received the overall ‘Grand Prize’ at the event. Those are some serious accolades! The Battle Royale genre has cultural ties to both Japan and Korea, so it’s not surprising that the game is such a success in that region.

Korean esports organizer OGL is even betting on PUBG’s success over the long-term… They recently announced plans to build a custom 100-player arena! The world will be watching this weekend as the best in the world face off at IEM Oakland, so get hype for PUBG esports on the rise!
