PUBG: 5 Reasons why PUBG Mobile is the most popular battle royale game right now
- Reasons which explain why PUBG Mobile is fast becoming the most played battle royale game on mobile devices.
#2 Cross-Platform Matchmaking
Even though PUBG PC is isolated as a PC game, PUBG Mobile is not. With the official emulator launch now PC players can play PUBG "Mobile" on their PC. The best part about the emulator is that it is not a different game with a different server. PUBG emulator is an extended part of PUBG mobile.
You can play PUBG on your computer and at the same time play with your buddies who play the game on the handheld device. The servers and ranking system is the same. The emulator is basically helping to play the mobile game on your computer which kind of defeats the purpose of having PUBG PC at all.
Why buy the PUBG PC when you can play PUBG on your computer for free?
The emulator is the game's official extension and will not ban your account as long as you are not using other 3rd party software.
#3 Being Available on Mobile
Being available on mobile gave the highest boost to the PUBG player base. This is a common fact that there are more mobile users than there are PC users. On top of that, PUBG PC came out with a price tag of 999 INR. The mobile version offered you a free game.
Even though PUBG PC was super hit after coming out, PUBG mobile did beat that record by miles when it gained 60 million players within the very first week in a single region. There are a limited number of PC gamers and a lot of those are already "grinding" hard on other games like DOTA 2 or Counter-Strike.
This will, of course, slow down the process of gaining regular players. On the other hand, PUBG Mobile can be played by anyone at any time, it's easy to learn, does not have a lot to do with reflex or muscle memory and most importantly it is first of its kind to be available on a handheld device.Published 16 May 2019, 16:01 IST
