PUBG gameplay could become addictive, making players oblivious to their surroundings.

We’ve all played PUBG Mobile and for some people, it has reached the levels of addiction, playing for long hours, forgetting everything in life.

But what if we tell you that a real-life PUBG arena is on the cards and this particular anonymous gentlemen is looking for people to make it happen on an island? Yes, you’ve read that right. In fact, anybody who helps the person replicate the space of a PUBG-like arena, will be paid handsomely as well.

All this is happening through a website called also known as the ‘Amazon for Millionaires’ which is helping this wealthy man to fulfill his wishes of playing in Battle Royale-like tournament against real people.

The unknown millionaire in question is yet to acquire the island, where the tournament will take place. Once he’s got the space, 100 applicants will be invited to compete in the tournament, where no real guns will be used, of course. But that’s not all, the person helping him create this arena will be paid 45,000 pounds (Rs 40.57 lakh approx), which is quite a lot of money.

PUBG Mobile is a popular game, with over 50 million users from India itself, actively putting themselves to test to win the ‘Chicken Dinner’ on a daily basis. If at all, the millionaire gets his wishes.

PUBG Mobile has made the news for various reasons, but in recent times, the popular game has found itself on the wrong side of critics, and law enforcement as well.

The game was banned in select cities in India earlier this year, and youth have also died because of their penchant to play the game, without knowing their surroundings.

This forced PUBG Mobile’s hand into putting a time limit on the game, which irked players across the country, making them feel like kids who couldn’t control their urge to play the game, which sadly was indeed true.
