PUBG Xbox One Livestream Will see PlayerUnknown Give Tips to Walking Dead's "Carl"

May the odds be ever in your favor, gents.

Actor Chandler Riggs, who plays the young but sharp-witted apocalypse survivor Carl Grimes ono The Walking Dead, is giving zombie-slaying a short rest to hunt down a deadlier quarry: The clever naked apes called "humans."

Riggs will be doing all his tracking and shooting in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, of course. Did it sound like I was implying otherwise? Pardon. Brendan Greene, the titular PlayerUnknown and the creative director of PUBG, is joining him to share tips and tricks (Oh, I have one: Hit boxes for buggies are much bigger than they appear to be, so drive carefully. Or don't, I'm not anyone's mom. But we do have some legitimately good PUBG tips for your to pursue).

Technically, every player in PUBG qualifies as the walking dead.

The livestream is happening tomorrow (Thursday, February 22) at 2 p.m. PT on Xbox Live Sessions, which you can catch at the Mixer Xbox Channel.

The second half of season 8 of The Walking Dead is premiering on February 25. Riggs' appearance on Xbox Live Sessions should be a nice infusion of good publicity for the show, as well as for PUBG itself. PUBG's still very hot, but its problems with cheaters are well-known and dragging the game down a bit. Fortnite: Battle Royale is also encroaching on its territory as the number-one battle royale game on the market.
