YOODO - Malaysia’s customisable digital mobile service has launched its exclusive Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile add-on.
Malaysia’s first dedicated gaming add-on will provide gamers with greater freedom to game with specific data reserved for playing PUBG Mobile – one of the world’s most popular multiplayer games. To kick-off the launch and as an extra gift to gamers, the add-on is currently free for all Yoodo users.
Commenting on the announcement, Yoodo head Chow Tuck Mun said, “Earlier last month, Yoodo announced its intention to increase focus towards gamers. Just a month later, we have delivered on the next phase of this plan with the launch of this exclusive PUBG Mobile add-on.
“Through the add-on we are empowering gamers by giving them greater choice and control of how they purchase and consume data.”
Chow added that in order to show that Yoodo is serious about supporting gamers, the add-on is absolutely free right now. “This means that Yoodo users will get their chance to feast on chicken dinners everyday no matter where they are. They can leverage on our widest 4G coverage and best of all they won’t have to worry about spending a cent on data to play the game,” he added.
This announcement was made during the opening ceremony of the grand finals of Malaysia’s First Official PUBG Mobile National Championship (PMNC). PMNC is organised by PUBG Corporation and Tencent Games with Yoodo as the official digital telco of the tournament.
The tournament spanned one month, with four qualifiers across Malaysia – in Johor, Sabah, Sarawak and Kuala Lumpur, featuring 256 teams or over 1,000 players with RM60,000 up for grabs.
The event culminated at Sunway Velocity amidst a huge crowd with a win for team Gank.FTY who walked away with a RM20,000 cash prize and free one-year mobile plans from Yoodo.
Speaking on the tournament and Yoodo’s participation Chow said, “We are incredibly proud to have partnered with Tencent Games to help realise this tremendously successful tournament. Its impact has been far reaching, providing immense entertainment, bringing communities together, creating new stars and further cementing Malaysia’s position on the global e-sports stage.”
As part of the festivities for the PMNC grand finals influencers and other streamers were also called in for a show match with participants including Luqman Podolski, AdibAlexx, Christina Xiao Ting, Liyee and The Face Gaming team (Chii, Revoluzion, Han10k and Rascal).
To enjoy Yoodo’s exclusive PUBG Mobile add-on, users have to navigate to the add-on tab within the Yoodo app and then select the PUBG Mobile add-on from the add-on list.
With this, users will be able to enjoy free 20GB of PUBG Mobile-specific data for the month.
