The creators of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds have launched iOS and Android versions of the Fortnite rival, so you can play it on mobile wherever you are.
"This week we're celebrating yet another milestone for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) on Xbox One: we have now passed 5M players!" Tecent has released a mobile version of the game on both iOS and Android for free. That wait, it appears, is over with the release of PUBG Mobile in the Play Store.
In case you're wondering, the mobile version of PUBG is a port of the PC and console versions, and not just a dumbed-down title specifically designed for mobile phones. To unlock some cosmetic item for your PUBG soldier, you can go through various in-game challenges for a slow shot at the loot box. No word on if Fortnite is beating PUBG on iOS yet, but you can bet the competition is tight.
For those who are unfamiliar with PUBG, the battle royale game has 100 players drop onto an island to fight to the death.
Adding bots is, arguably, a clever way to introduce new, more casual players to PUBG (Twitter is rife with people bragging about winning their first-ever game). The beta for the game has also been available in the U.S. Developer Epic has launched Fortnite in a testing phase that is invite only, but that has not stopped it from rising to the top of the download and grossing charts on iOS.
One of the most popular games of the past year, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now available for smartphones.
PUBG Mobile is free to play and is rated 17-plus.
Like with Fortnite, PUBG mobile requires a newish device.
TenCent has already confirmed that the game will be coming to "more regions", but it seems Europe hasn't lucked out.
