PUBG and Call of Duty, the battle royale games from Krafton and Infinity Ward, feature PSG and Brazilian player Neymar Jr right now as World Cup 2022 takes off alongside Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.
As we previously reported, Neymar loves video games – he has participated in several PUBG competitions and occasionally streams the multiplayer shooter on Twitch. Paying tribute to his surprisingly devoted fandom, PUBG Update 20.2 launches a new Neymar collaboration, with billboards, in-game décor, and care packages all featuring the likeness of the PSG and Brazil striker scattered across every map. Deston will also return to the normal map pool starting with the next PUBG update, and vehicle spawns will also be rebalanced across the game.
Thus, PUBG becomes the second multiplayer shooter to feature Neymar this month, as the footballer is now playable in Call of Duty as well. New Modern Warfare 2 Operator Packs let you take control of #10, complete with his own custom outfit, weapon loadout, and run move. Paul Pogba and Lionel Messi are also falling for the FPS game as the soccer world works on the common ground between online shooter fans and World Cup devotees.
It’s a bit weird, frankly. Of all the things that could improve or cheer up PUBG and CoD, the introduction of PSG and Brazilian striker Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior will probably appear in the second half of the list. It’s not the strangest video game tie-in I’ve seen though. That prize goes to Microsoft, which on the occasion of the release of Halo 2, printed an official Master Chief condom. And no, I’m not making this up.
Make sure you have the best PUBG settings to ensure your battle royale runs smoothly and well. You can also get the best PUBG weapons, as long as you know where to look. Alternatively, if you’d rather experience Neymar via CoD, grab the best Modern Warfare 2 weapons and take the field.
