About the PUBG API
The PUBG API enables developers to gather PUBG post-match game data about matches or players’ season stats. Anyone can use the PUBG API to create awesome PUBG applications for their own enjoyment or for the community. Get inspired by taking a look at the spotlight posts that we’ve done in the past, highlighting some of the best Featured Apps that the community developers have created so far.
Overwolf strives to empower developers to create applications and mods for the Overwolf platform that will help gamers play smarter. Overwolf has launched an investment fund with Intel and is now offering to help developers make a living off of their creations! There’s thousands of dollars on the line for this challenge.
The Overwolf API has desktop app and overlay capabilities, second screen functionality, can be used to interface with live streams, and gives you the ability to make money with in-app ads. Their realtime API includes the total number of kills in the match, the local player’s kills, the match’s map and mode, and more.
