The Asian Games is a multi-sport event that’s held every four years, in which Asia’s best athletes compete.

The Asian Games first paved the way for esports representation with its inclusion as a demonstration sport in 2018. In 2020, and now 2022, esports is part of the official program and a medalled event. In the 19th Asian Games, the game will join seven other games in the program: Arena of Valor Asian Games Version, DOTA 2, Dream Three Kingdoms 2, EA SPORTS FIFA branded soccer games, Hearthstone, League of Legends, Street Fighter V.

As one of the largest and most accessible esports programs in the world, the game’s esports circuit has seen massive growth in 2021 with 14 new leagues and a total prize pool of $15,000,000 USD for the year, the highest in mobile esports history. PUBG MOBILE’s inclusion in the 2022 Asian Games shows its continued worldwide growth as one of the most popular mobile esports games, having recently surpassed over 1 billion downloads worldwide.
