Well, it seems the organizers have one more thing up their sleeves to surprise attendees, with hugely popular streamers Guy “Dr DisRespect” Beahm and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek set to make an appearance at the event.

Competing in the challenge will be none other than Shroud and Dr DisRespect so this is a true chance to test your skills against PUBG Legends!”
