Blackpink to Take Part in PUBG Mobile Gameplay Show This Month
PUBG Mobile has a brand-new gameplay show coming, and they couldn’t have picked bigger stars if they tried – BLACKPINK will be on tap! We’ve seen a lot of this partnership lately, with the collaboration being officially announced in September. Who cares about Mountain Dew in-game? BLACKPINK is the real star of the show. They won’t be alone though; South Korean singer Kim Hee-chul and a pair of streamers (DDEDDEDDEDDE, BEENU) will be taking part as well!
Not a Heartless Collaboration:
It’s not like BLACKPINK is unfamiliar with PUBG Mobile, either. In this recent collaboration, if you give in-game gifts to the members of BLACKPINK (Jennie Kim, Kim Jisoo, Lisa Manoban, and Rosé Park), you could win signed BLACKPINK albums. To do this, the girls’ real in-game IDs were revealed. So the Kpop act has in-game chops when it comes to PUBG Mobile. This is on top of the theme visual, lobby music, the airplane/airdrop skins, the billboard, and way more.
Though the in-game collaboration just ended (Nov. 2nd), PUBG Mobile revealed that their new gameplay show will star the girls from BLACKPINK, showing off their skills. This “Fun Match” gameplay show will have Blackpink, Kim Hee-chul, DDEDDEDDEDDE, and BEENU all playing this exceptional mobile Battle Royale game. PUBG Mobile’s no stranger to huge collaborations, but we’d argue this is far and away the biggest.
In many celebrity collaborations, the average fan likely thinks the stars in question don’t really play the game, but nothing seems to be further from the truth. This is a fantastic way to expose Blackpink to people who may not already listen to them to get them on board, and vice versa. This collaboration is what really introduced this writer to BLACKPINK, if we can be honest. It promises to be a lot of fun to watch; the Blackpink girls are known to be hyper-competitive, so this ought to be 100% worth a view.
However, this is the end of the details we have on the upcoming gameplay show for BLACKPINK x PUBG Mobile. We do know it will be streamed on their Facebook and YouTube channels, and that it will be this month. Perhaps there will be news about new Blackpink music, or other in-game shenanigans. We won’t know until it goes down, so we hope you’ll tune in alongside us. Once there’s more information, we’ll surely pass it along.
