The biggest names on Twitch and PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS [PUBG] pros and streamers battle it out for $300,000 at Seattle’s Paramount Theater at PAX West. Transporting attendees to the Broadcaster Royale Grand Finals I from the Washington State Convention Center is an immersive, three-block, full-scale, authentic recreation of PUBG’s game experience. Once at the hot drop, fans experience the Grand Finals in a complete, Twitch/PUBG Paramount Theater takeover.
Attendees exit the convention center and climb aboard the Vietnam vintage 6x6 transport truck while a PUBG cosplay/squad leader readies the team for the theater hot drop as they are transported three full Seattle blocks. The last leg of the mission [a 9th Ave. takeover] starts by getting past the security tower. Our gritty team is enveloped with explosive, giant red plumes from iconic PUBG supply crates as the truck traverses obstacles such as a Unimog transport truck, burned-out cars and Tuk Tuks; the entire block is an authentic recreation of game sights and sounds. PUBG cosplayers meet the transport as it pulls up to the theater and our heroic attendees disembark. A deflated parachute hangs off the edge of the marquee still connected to a PUBG supply crate on the sidewalk. The intrepid Twitch attendees are rewarded with extra swag as they enter the Paramount Theater.
Once inside Paramount Theater, attendees experience a full Twitch and PUBG property 2D/3D takeover from the lobby to the stage; authentic game-sourced objects such as parachutes, crates, vehicles and more. Photos ops include a game-sourced UAZ Jeep and a Twitch Prime green screen experience. Ice cream and snow cones are served from an authentic PUBG supply crate. Gear is available for purchase at the Twitch/PUBG Swag Store as fans grab a seat to watch the Battle Royale action. The stage, flanked left and right by two game image 55 x 30 ft. graphic backdrops, includes a play-by-play commentator’s zone with game action projected on a large center screen. A three-quarter scale PUBG paratrooper with inflated parachute hangs above the players’ pods positioned in front of the stage. Players, famous and infamous, stopped by for interviews and autographs. A perfect environment that hits all the right chords for the PUBG Season 1 Grand Finals.
