After a lot of teasing and waiting, we are finally getting some proper Lionel Messi-themed content for PUBG Mobile. After giving the battlefield its football transformation, and giving the players the greatest mount interaction in gaming, Messi has now entered the game with a plethora of items.
There is a massive amount of items available to collect to emulate the great man himself, including Messi-inspired costumes. Other items included are covers, backpacks, helmets, a Messi pan, grenades and customised versions of many guns including the Mini14, MK47 and PP-19 Bizon.
Not content with just one set of items, the Messi Super Legend items can also be collected, which includes a set, hat, mask and parachute. Finally, the Messi Collaboration items also have a set, a plane finish and even a hoverboard. If you still haven’t had enough of the Messi gear, you can still get the PUBG Mobile x Lionel Messi collaboration Jersey by simply logging in before December 18th.
Upon the reveal, football legend Messi said “It’s so exciting to see PUBG MOBILE reveal the items we’ve been working on together, I can’t wait to see players using our amazing new outfits. It’s been a great experience working with PUBG MOBILE, and I’m really proud of the work this partnership has achieved - I’m looking forward to getting on the battlefield and using these items myself!”
In addition, the Head of PUBG MOBILE Publishing, Vincent Wang, said “Messi has been a pleasure to collaborate with, and it’s an honour to be able to immortalise him in PUBG MOBILE. This is a huge moment for PUBG MOBILE players and football fans alike, and I hope everyone enjoys unleashing their power with these truly special in-game items.”.
