If you’ve been hankering to start kicking ass and taking names in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds aka PUBG, you’ll be glad to know that the blockbuster multiplayer game is now available on Android and iOS for free in the US and 122 other regions across the globe. The 100-player-battle-royale title previously soft-launched in Canada last week. China’s Tencent Games, which developed the mobile version in collaboration with PUBG Corp., is gradually rolling it out worldwide; although the company officially announced only the US release, I found it to be available on Google Play here in India at the time of writing. The true…
Not to be outdone by Epic’s Fortnite, Tencent’s licensed version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds — better known as PUBG — is now officially available for the iPhone and iPad. AppleInsider – Frontpage News
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is now available on mobile in the US, on both iOS and Android. The game has already been live in Asia for quite a while and came to Canada last week, but there wasn’t a launch date for the US.
The mobile version of PUBG was developed by Tencent, the Chinese conglomerate that owns WeChat and invests in games like League of Legends. The mobile PUBG is true to the full game, although the graphics have been pared down for mobile…
Last Friday I did a hands-on with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile thanks to its availability as a soft-launch title in Canada. Today it would appear that the PUBG Mobile has launched worldwide minus of a few European regions, though it’s exactly the same version (0.3.2) as the Canadian release from last week. So short of the new areas that can access the download, nothing much has changed.
PUBG Mobile has gotten a lot of press lately with its apparent rush to market.
It is shaping up to be a spectacular month for battle royale games on iOS. After the hugely popular Fortnite landed in the App Store last week, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has made its way to iPhone and iPad. But there is a catch! PUBG was the king of battle royale games until Fortnite came along and stole its […]
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get my hands on the mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The game is pure fun and terror (hiding in a bathroom has never been more nerve-wracking), but it also currently comes with only one map, and as large at that map is, it’s starting to get stale. Fortunately, a new map is coming to the game, and it was properly shown off last night during the Game Awards. The new map is desert themed and is called Miramar. While the idea of a desert map usually connotes images of brown monotony, Miramar is actually quite varied, with all kinds of landscape features that will make for some great firefights and even crueler deaths.
The PC update that will add Miramar to the game will also add the new vaulting system, which will make PUBG a more nimble game. Few things are as frustrating as being shot at while running at a low fence and knowing that by the time you get over that tiny obstacle, you’ll be riddled with bullets. I’m very curious to see how the vaulting system will work on mobile or whether it will even make it to the platform. Now all we can do is be patient and hope to get PUBG on our phones sooner rather than later.
I have been biding my time with the recent rumors of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds coming to Android to ensure that it will indeed exist as an official release. After spending some time digging through a few Chinese sites, it does look as though the rumors are legit. As of yesterday Tencent and TIMI Studio Group released an official webpage complete with a trailer for their upcoming game. If that wasn’t enough good news, there is a second web page from Tencent that popped up for a different PUBG mobile game developed by Lightspeed & Quantum Studio.
It was only about a week ago when Tencent announced that it's bringing a localized version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to China, and earlier today, the tech giant added that it's also porting the PC game to mobile platforms — an interesting mov… Engadget RSS Feed
