Tencent unveils 2022 esports roadmap for PUBG Mobile’s Chinese game Peacekeeper Elite
The Elite Peacekeepers League (PEL) is undergoing big changes, the league announced on Weibo today. The number of seasons has been reduced from four to two, and the competition will now also be played from a third-person perspective (TPP).
The PEL is the highest level of competition PUBG-Mobile in China. Twenty teams compete in this franchise league to become regional champions. PUBG-Mobile is available in China as Peacekeeper Elite (also known as Game for Peace).
This year, the ELP has been divided into spring and summer seasons. Each season will include a regular season, playoffs and the grand finale. The spring season will start on March 10. Tencent has yet to reveal the full schedule or prize pool.
One of the biggest changes in 2022 is the shift from a first-person perspective (FPP) to a third-person perspective (TPP). Worldwide, PUBG-Mobile esports competitions are held in TPP, meaning China will now follow the same format as teams around the world.
Additionally, four new teams will join the PEL in 2022. KONE, Vision Esports, J Team entered the league after acquiring slots from Royal Never Give Up, Da Kun Gaming (DKG) and Qing Jiu Club (Q9) , respectively. PeRo Esports has also crossed the influencer trail.
