NEYMAR will appear in battle royale shooter PUBG as a purchasable skin.
PUBG announced its collaboration with the Paris Saint-Germain striker, which includes a skin, billboards, building decorations and soccer balls.
He will be available in-game after PUBG’s 20.2 update, which is due November 9th for PC and November 17th for console players.
Alongside this update, another player from Paris Saint-Germain is also said to be coming into the game.
Earlier it was announced that Messi would appear in PUBG.
However, now that Neymar’s involvement is known, more details about the release have been revealed.
Both Neymar and Messi appear to be avid gamers, with Messi notably expressing his love for PUBG Mobile.
However, PUBG isn’t the only shooter the couple is rumored to appear in.
Dataminers examining the code of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 found a list of soccer player names in the list of currently unpublished operators.
They included the pair Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.
After launching the game, players found the models for Neymar and Pogba in multiplayer.
However, Messi was absent. When his PUBG debut was announced shortly after, it was assumed he wouldn’t be coming to CoD:MW2.
Now that we know Neymar will appear in both games, the PUBG deal doesn’t appear to be exclusive.
This means that Messi could still come to CoD:MW2, but his model will come into play at a later date.
CoD:MW2 hasn’t officially announced their collaboration with the trio, so no release date has been confirmed for their performances.
When they appear in-game, they’ll likely be as purchasable skins or DLC if the release follows the pattern of previous collaborations.
Most interesting is the announcement of Neymar soccer balls, which has fans wondering how they will be used in the game.
People speculate that they could be used as some sort of weapon or distraction against opponents.
