Gaming

  • PUBG MOBILE is one of the most popular mobile games in the Philippines , with over one million monthly active users.
  • PUBG MOBILE players in the Philippines can now complete daily challenges for prizes and 'Ember Points' that can be exchanged inside the Globe Gamer Grounds platform for Steam gift cards, in-game currencies, and more.
  • In April 2022 Globe Telecom rolled out Swarmio's proprietary Ember gaming and esports platform to its 85 million customers under the brand name Globe Gamer Grounds . Revenues generated from subscriptions and transactions inside the platform are shared between Swarmio, Globe Telecom, and TM WHOLESALE.
  • Swarmio's Ember platform enables game publishers and developers to reach, engage and monetize the 2 billion gamers in Asia , Africa , the Middle East and Latin America , where credit card penetration is relatively low and access to bank accounts is limited. By partnering with telecom operators, Swarmio enables gamers to purchase in-game items using telco payment channels such as digital wallets and Direct Carrier Billing (DCB).

Swarmio Media Holdings Inc. (CSE: SWRM) (OTC: SWMIF) (GR: U5U) ("Swarmio" or "the Company"), a technology company focused on the global deployment of its proprietary subscription-based gaming and esports platform, and Globe Telecom (PSE: GLO) ("Globe"), the Philippines' largest mobile network and broadband service provider, announce the launch of a promotional event (the "Promotional Event") inside PUBG MOBILE in the Philippines in partnership with Level Infinite, a subsidiary of Tencent Games (OTC: TCEHY) (" Tencent ").

Until September 28th , PUBG MOBILE players in the Philippines will have the chance to complete daily challenges to win 'Ember Points' that can be exchanged inside the Globe Gamer Grounds platform for Steam gift cards, in-game currencies, and other prizes. The Promotional Event is being launched on behalf of Globe Telecom, Swarmio Media, and Level Infinite to drive gamers to subscribe to the Globe Gamer Grounds platform, which was launched to Globe's 85 million customers across the Philippines in April 2022 . PUBG MOBILE is one of the most popular games in the Philippines , with more than one million monthly active users.

As previously disclosed , Globe Telecom launched Swarmio's Ember gaming and esports platform under the brand name Globe Gamer Grounds in a revenue share agreement whereby revenues generated from subscriptions and in-game purchases are split between Swarmio, Globe, and TM Wholesale (the global and wholesale arm of Telekom Malaysia Berhad).

Subscribers to Globe Gamer Grounds enjoy all the features the Ember platform has to offer, including an ultra-low-latency playing experience, access to exclusive competitive challenges and tournaments, unique gaming content, managed communities, gamification and points system, online store, and gamer e-wallet.

Tencent , the world's highest-grossing multimedia company, launched PUBG MOBILE, a free-to-download and free-to-play game, in 2018. It has since become one of the world's most downloaded and most played games, with approximately 30 million daily active users globally and more than 700 million downloads in 2022 so far. PUBG MOBILE has also consistently been one of the highest-grossing games in the world, generating USD $ 2 billion in revenue in 2021 , mostly from in-app purchases.

"This is a very exciting time for Swarmio, as it marks the beginning of what we hope will be many strategic partnerships with game publishers, developers and distributors," stated Timothy Thornton , Swarmio's Director of Growth. "By partnering with major telcos such as Globe Telecom to launch our Ember platform around the world, we are giving more gamers the opportunity to discover a better way to game – including low latency and the chance to purchase in-game content and items using alternative payment methods such as e-wallet and Direct Carrier Billing. Through our Ember platform, game developers and publishers are also able to access large yet underbanked populations of gamers that have proved challenging to monetize in the past, due to a lack of payment options. We're incredibly honored and excited to be partnering with Level Infinite, and for the Ember brand to be featured in PUBG MOBILE, one of the most loved and most played games in the world."

Ralph Aligada , Head of Games and Esports for Globe Telecom added: "Globe Gamer Grounds is proven to be very popular with the Filipino gamers, so it made perfect sense to promote the platform inside PUBG MOBILE, one of the most popular games in the Philippines . We look forward to giving all our customers who game a fun and rewarding way to join in and connect with more gamers in their communities."
