PUBG MOBILE has announced its new partnership with soccer star Lionel Messi, through which it will bring Messi into one of its games.
PUBG Mobile will soon celebrate as part of the 2.3 version update next November, the career of the Argentine footballer, as it will bring the star to players’ devices around the world and will be the only Battle Royale game that officially cooperates with Messi.
“Part of my life”
Messi said: “Video games have always been a huge part of my life, and I find them useful to relax and enjoy my time outside of training and to connect with my colleagues, friends, and family. PUBG Mobile is so much fun and I am among the millions of fans around the world. I feel proud of our collaboration and would like to invite all Players to join me in PUBG Mobile.
Vincent Wang, Head of PUBG Mobile Publishing at Tencent Games, said: “We are very fortunate to have a global sports star join PUBG Mobile. And because we know that many PUBG Mobile players are football fans too, we can’t wait to celebrate this. Sport is in the game and spread the atmosphere of the ball among the new fans of the game.”
Messi is considered one of the most important football players and is widely seen as one of the greatest players in the world.
He has won the Ballon d’Or 7 times and the European Golden Boot six times. He is also known for his philanthropic efforts on global children’s issues such as his work with UNICEF.
