PUBG MOBILE will celebrate the sporting icon’s one-of-a-kind career as part of the Version 2.3 Update in November, bringing the superstar to players’ devices all over the world and setting the bar as the only battle royale mobile game to officially partner with Messi.
“Video games have always been a big part of my life,” Messi explained. “I find them incredibly useful for relaxing and having fun when I’m not training, as well as connecting with my teammates, friends, and family.”
“PUBG MOBILE is a lot of fun, and I am one of its millions of fans all over the world.” “I am proud of what we’ve accomplished and would like to invite all players to join me in PUBG Mobile,” he added.
“We’re incredibly lucky to have such a global sporting superstar join PUBG MOBILE!” said Vincent Wang, Tencent Games’ Head of PUBG MOBILE Publishing.
“Knowing that many PUBG MOBILE players are already big football fans, we can’t wait to champion the sport in-game and spread its joy to new fans,” he added.
