What’s up, gamers? PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been an incredibly popular PC game this past year (like, really popular.) From its record-breaking downloads on Steam to mammoth purchases on consoles for their “chicken dinners”, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has definitely been the star of the gaming industry. And now, it is poised to continue its impressive run with its entry into the mobile arena, and we’ve got the definitive guide and updates about PUBG’s mobile versions!
First, a little recap. Back in December, gaming giant Tencent announced the release of two mobile games based on Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds.
The first mobile PUBG game is called Army Attack, produced by Timi Studio. It includes all-out naval warfare, where players can control ships and blast each other down. Players can also use helicopters to take down enemies or parachute out of. These are both marked changes from the traditional battle royale set-up, with the teaser suggesting an overall arcade-style gameplay.
The second PUBG mobile game is called Battlefield, which is more aligned to what Tencent teased when it announced the move to mobile. The game, developed by Lightspeed and Quantum Studio, features PUBG’s standard “last man standing” setup, with players fending for themselves on a deserted island.
Just this month, Tencent released a totally-awesome live-action trailer to signal the launch of the two games in China. The trailer follows the narrative of the game, beginning with characters parachuting out of an airplane as they prepare to fight to the death on the ground. The characters are shown doing all manner of PUBG things such as scavenging for equipment, either alone or with a team (Solo vs. Squads). It even shows PUBG’s famous bullet-stopping frying pan!
Of course, Tencent also released a gameplay video to ease their players into mobile.
[PUBG Mobile Update] Our Canadian friends can thank their lucky stars, as PUBG Mobile is already live in Canada!
