The charity invitational event kicks off on Thursday, May 4 at 10AM-1PM ET in Europe, and 2PM-5PM in the US. As for the event, there will be two sessions for both regions, with 128 streamers taking place in the event - each session will host 64 players in duos mode only, seeing 32 players per region. Each region will fight against each other in a set of three matches, with the winner being chosen from the highest overall placement.

 

Gamers Outreach, an organization that is dedicated towards providing "equipment, technology, and software" to children in hospitals, will receive all of the money raised during PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' charity invitational.

 

Brendan Greene, the creator of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, said: "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. Back in Arma 3 I held two charity events in support of Extra Life, and with the tremendous support of the community and streamers we raised over $70,000 for the kids!"
