The list of esports teams participating in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ first ever esports event has grown by two: Noble Esports and Mythic Reborn will both participate in the event.

Noble and Mythic join TSM, Cloud9, Team Liquid, and Luminosity, as well as numerous other teams made up of streamers and content creators.

Mythic Reborn has roots in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It’s made up of former and current pros, including Erik “Fl0m” Flom, Eric “Adren” Hoag, Todd “Anger” Williams, and Alex “LeX” Deily.

Noble Esports will be represented by Darren “DazFPS” Rourke, Kade “Edakulous” Borel, Nick “Interrogate” Raposo, and Mario “DNBoom” Tancon.”

In July, Twitch viewers watched 60 million hours of PUBG on Twitch, and the game just recently surpassed 600,000 concurrent players on Steam. But this invitational event will be PUBG’s first taste of real esports on LAN.

The gamescom PUBG Invitational will consist of games played in Solo, Duo, first person Duo, and Squad formats. There is a total of $350,000 in prizing on the line at the event, which takes place from Aug. 23 to 26.
