PUBG MOBILE and GameWorks announced today they are teaming up to host a one-night-only open event at all seven GameWorks locations, as a part of PUBG MOBILE’s summer-long “Team Up Celebration.” The PUBG MOBILE Chicken Dinner Open, to be held on Thursday, August 15, welcomes teams of players who compete on their mobile devices for prizes, including the grand prize, a fully loaded chicken dinner.
With players across all seven GameWorks locations competing, the PUBG MOBILE Chicken Dinner Open will pit hundreds of players against one another in a free-for-all, mobile-based tournament for pride and prizes. Locations include those in Virginia (Chesapeake), Denver (Northfield/Stapleton), Las Vegas (Town Square), Minneapolis (Mall of America), Cincinnati (Newport on the Levee, Ky.), Chicago (Schaumburg) and Seattle (Downtown).
“We were incredibly excited to partner with GameWorks on the creative idea of a PUBG MOBILE tournament where the prize is an actual chicken dinner,” said PUBG MOBILE’s Head of North American Publishing, Neo Liu. “We love to support opportunities for PUBG MOBILE fans to get together and compete. We can’t wait to see who wins.”
To celebrate the event, a new PUBG MOBILE chicken dinner will be featured on The Works Kitchen at GameWorks menu all summer long. The Works Kitchen at GameWorks is its branded, chef-imagined Modern American restaurant, featuring an eclectic menu. Guests attending the tournament can get a $3 discount on their PUBG MOBILE chicken dinner by showing they’ve installed PUBG MOBILE on their device.
“As an established national leader in esports and operator of branded, in-store restaurants, GameWorks is the perfect partner to align with PUBG MOBILE for this tournament. We have the capacity, scope and necessary expertise to host these types of events across our national platform, which was appealing to PUBG MOBILE. Our Works Kitchen at GameWorks brings it all together by having the resources to create the grand chicken dinner prize,” added GameWorks Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Philip N. Kaplan, GameWorks
About PUBG MOBILE
PUBG MOBILE is based on PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, the phenomenon that took the world of interactive entertainment by storm in 2017. Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to battle in a winner-takes-all showdown. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone.
PUBG MOBILE is available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play.
