PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – Battle royale title wins big at annual Korea Game Awards

In an era where mobile games run rampant, one PC game stood out like a sore thumb in a good way. At the annual Korea Game Awards held the day before G-Star begins, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds won the Presidential Prize by shaking off competition from high-graphics mobile games such as Lineage II: Revolution (which won the consolation Grand Prize), Three Kingdoms Blade, and Dark Avenger 3. The last time a PC title won the biggest prize was in 2013 by ArcheAge. Overall, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds won in 6 categories. Developer Bluehole will continue to build the esports business for the game in 2018.
