When is 'PUBG' Squad Showdown and what is it?

In celebration of Amazon Prime Day July 16, PUBG Corp. has teamed up with Twitch for an event that brings celebrities and streamers together.

Where to watch the Squad Showdown stream

As of now, the only place to watch Squad Showdown is via the official PUBG Twitch channel, embedded below. It's possible participants may host streams on their Twitch channels too, but we wouldn't expect this Twitch-sponsored event to be on any other streaming platforms.

Who are the Squad Showdown Teams?

The exact team lineup hasn't been revealed yet, but the following streamers are confirmed for the festivities:

The most controversial inclusion on this list is Shroud, who was just recently banned from PUBG for fraternizing with hackers during a match. We imagine he'll be temporarily unbanned or use a new account to join in on the fun. We'll do our best to update this article with proper team alignments when the event begins.

What about the Squad Showdown Twitch Prime Loot?

In true Twitch fashion, those with Amazon Prime and Twitch Prime accounts will be able to score exclusive in-game loot for watching Squad Showdown. In addition to giveaways and other content reveals during the stream, all Twitch Prime members can unlock deadmau5-themed gear starting July 16.
