#ChickenForCharity - the games industry PUBG clash

The team roster is confirmed for #ChickenForCharity, the UK’s first games industry PUBG tournament.

Friday's event will see 100 games devs going head-to-head over four games of PUBG to decide which studio is the 2018 #ChickenForCharity champion! SpecialEffect will also be entering two volunteer teams, headed-up by special guest captains RageDarling and FlowDriver.

The tournament will be live-streamed on twitch.tv/specialeffectteam from 13.00-17.00 BST on Friday 22nd June, in a special broadcast from GAME’s BELONG esports studio hosted by The Simms, Talha and JohnPee.

Alongside the main competition, participants are also finding all kinds of inventive ways to fundraise including “Are you chicken?” dares and a challenge to see who can create the funniest team photos on Photoshop. You can find out more here: www.justgiving.com/chickenforcharity

Tom Donegan, Events Coordinator at SpecialEffect said: “It’s fantastic to see such an enthusiastic response to #ChickenForCharity from our friends across the games industry. We’d like to thank SEGA Europe for their support in helping to make this happen and PUBG Corp. for allowing us to use the phenomenal PUBG. We’re really grateful to everyone who has signed up to play and can’t wait to see who will be the ‘winner, winner’ at the end of the day!”
