In the 19th Asian Games, PUBG MOBILE will join seven other games in the program: Arena of Valor Asian Games Version, DOTA 2, Dream Three Kingdoms 2, EA SPORTS FIFA branded soccer games, Hearthstone, League of Legends, Street Fighter V.

As one of the largest and most accessible esports programs in the world, PUBG MOBILE’s esports circuit has seen massive growth in 2021 with 14 new leagues and a total prize pool of $15,000,000 USD for the year, the highest in mobile esports history. PUBG MOBILE’s inclusion in the 2022 Asian Games shows its continued worldwide growth as one of the most popular mobile esports games, having recently surpassed over 1 billion downloads worldwide. 

James Yang, Director of Global Esports, Tencent Games, said “It’s an honour for PUBG MOBILE to be included in the 2022 Asian Games. We’re incredibly lucky to have a number of extremely talented players from several countries in the region, and can’t wait to see them compete as part of such a prestigious event. Fans of the game can look forward to exciting competition between the region’s best PUBG MOBILE players as they’re celebrated alongside the best athletes in Asia.”

Minu Lee, the head of the PUBG MOBILE Strategic Marketing Department at KRAFTON, stated, “I’m glad that PUBG MOBILE is selected as the official medal event at the Asian Games Hangzhou 2022, which will be an opportunity for people from all over Asia to come together as one. I hope that fans and players will be able to unite through a new version on PUBG MOBILE, which we developed with PUBG IP specifically for the Asian Games.”

Legion of Frostborne 1.8 Update

As the next round of Legion of Frostborne was about to enter its war phase, another update arrived amidst the ice and snow on January 13th.

SuperGaming, one of India’s leading game development companies announced its mobile multiplayer shooter MaskGun has crossed 60 million players. January also marks the game’s third anniversary.

To celebrate this, MaskGun gets a new update known as the 3rd Anniversary Update. It brings a revamped user interface, fresh skins, and hotly-requested 1v1 mode. It’s out now via the App and Play Store.

“The MaskGun anniversary update is our biggest one yet,” says Roby John, CEO and co-founder. “1v1 in particular has been the most requested feature from the community. It aims to be a test of true skill to show off the best talent from MaskGun’s 60 million plus players as there won’t be a team to make up for your lapses or carry you in a match.”

As the name suggests, 1v1 pits one player against another in a no-holds barred contest to see who is the best. Select from three weapon types — assault rifle, shotgun, and sniper rifle and square off against your friend (or enemy) and settle rivalries once and for all. You can check out what to expect from 1v1 in this handy trailer:

Beat your rivals consistently and you could find yourself a spot on MaskGun’s leaderboard and win unique in-game rewards too. You can access the mode from the Rumble section of the game’s menu. Other additions include new female agents and dragonborne weapon skins. You can download MaskGun for free right now on the App Store and Google Play.
