Famed music producer, DJ and gamer Deadmau5 competed it a celebrity gaming tournament to win $20,000 for Extra Life, a charitable organization that raises funds in support of the Children's Miracle Network. The funds raised by the non-profit go towards children's hospitals, medical research, and community awareness initiatives.
To raise the $20,000, Deadmau5 competed in a -Battle Royale'-inspired game dubbed 'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.' The online multiplayer game is developed and published by PUBG Corporation. Throughout the game, players explore an island, where they have to scavenge to find the equipment and weapons they'll need to destroy their opponents. As players get eliminated, the map and the associated "safe areas" decrease in size, making it more difficult to avoid conflict. The winner is the last player standing.
