PlayerUnknown's BattleGrounds aka PUBG was released as a PC game at first. The newly released game managed to attract players all over the world and it was a super hit after the release. PUBG definitely is not the first game of its kind as battle royale games existed before but PUBG was the first ever game to make the genre popular.

The game obviously did better than expected as it started earning players very fast and a lot of games were partially abandoned because of the craze that PUBG created. This was the very first time a game gave competition to Counter-Strike and DOTA 2 in the south-east Asia region.

Very soon the game was released on mobile and that was the time when it exploded with a big bang. Within 1 week of the release, the game earned 60 million players from only South-East Asia region. Now that is not only great but it's a massive and probably the craziest thing to happen to any game ever released on mobile. Add to that, Tencent Games have also announced the launch of PUBG Lite, a toned down version of the game.

Here are the 5 reasons why I think PUBG is the hottest battle royale game right now.

#1 Mobility

This is the biggest reason behind PUBG mobile's success. A battle royale PC game was made available to every mobile user who can play the game from anywhere. This game changed the landscape of mobile gaming entirely.

Actually PUBG mobile developed a pseudo-LAN scene for mobile gamers. Before we had to go to a computer cafe to play a game on LAN together, with PUBG mobile your LAN party is in your pocket.

Sit anywhere with your friends and play the game. You can literally have a LAN party anywhere with PUBG mobile. Being available on mobile was the biggest advantage for PUBG. It gathered a lot more user after the mobile release.
