PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mobile Games Have Launched In China

3.9
While PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is garnering a huge audience across both Xbox One and PC, it just debuted a new format overseas – and is making just as big a killing over there, if not bigger.

A while back, Tencent garnered the publishing rights to PUBG games in China, where it expected to launch not one but two mobile games surrounding the hit multiplayer battle royale hit. And this past weekend, both games launched, and to surprisingly resounding numbers.

PUBG: Army Attack and PUBG: Exhilarating Battlefield are available now in that country, and based on early numbers, it’s already a colossal success, with more than 75 million players pre-registering for both titles. Exact download numbers weren’t given yet, but both games are clocking in at number one and number two, respectively, on the download charts. So, yeah, they could be something big.

Now, as far as why there are two games, they actually divide up the action across different fields. Army Attack, for instance, was developed by Tencent’s Timi Studio, and focuses exclusively on land, sea and air battles; while Exhilarating Battlefield acts more as the traditional PUBG style of experience, put together by the developers at Lightspeed and Quantum Studio.

As far as whether or not the PUBG formula can carry over to the mobile front, there’s some gameplay below that features it in action on the iPhone X – and it looks quite close to its PC and Xbox One counterparts, mind a few glitches here and there.



As far as how the gameplay works, we haven’t had a chance to check it out, since the game wasn’t released on our shores. However, it looks like both games support touch-screen play, as well as the option to use a controller – probably something a lot of players prefer.

It’s very unlikely we’ll see these games wind up on our shores, since they were made exclusively for the Chinese gaming market. That’s a shame, because they would certainly push PUBG’s popularity to new heights – especially to on-the-go players.

Don’t fret, as you can still enjoy the original PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for PC and Xbox One right now.

Adam I'm super glad that the enhancements of mobile tech recently has actually achieved something good. This game, for mobile, looks amazing. I wouldn't have assumed that It would have came out like it has, and the framerate looks solid. Defo needs a controller mind you.


The sad thing is you need to purchase a nice phone (800+) just to play this game on your phone.


That is the problem nowadays and big name games on mobile, you cant run them on an old phone.

ehh I feel like this is goig to be good when it first comes out and then there will be bugs everywhere and will need a overhaul update to fix everything. Mobile games arent really known for their bugless games xD

SR20DET Looks better and probably runs better than the Xbox version. lol


not even close to performance on the Xbox version. This is lack of graphics, frame rates, and lag compared to Xbox. lol

Nice to see China do this, I just dont think it will do very well, I mean its bad enough gfx and lots of problems already on the Xbox console let along on an iPhone lol, would be very interesting on some feedback from the users playing on mobile devices. Even if they released PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on iPhone over in the UK, I think the game would just drive me nuts lol.

Got to give props to China for doing this. Never played the game on Xbox or PC. I do wish that they will bring the game to PS4.
