PUBG Mobile is possibly the most played battle royale game on mobile platforms. It has a few localized adaptations, including Taiwan, Vietnam, and Korea.
The global and Korean versions are the most renowned ones from the list. While PUBG Corporation distributes the latter, Tencent Games publishes the worldwide edition.
The two games are indistinguishable regarding game mechanics, but there are a few differences. This article looks at the latter aspect in these two adaptations of PUBG Mobile.
PUBG Mobile KR and PUBG Mobile global version: Differences between these games
#1 - Exclusive events and rewards
PUBG Mobile Korea includes a few region-specific and selective in-game occasions that offer players chances to get various exclusive rewards.
For instance, in the sign-in event, players will get two Donkatsu Medals. They can get up to 50 medals through the Gift Box Login Event Reward.
The global version of PUBG Mobile does not have as many events for players.
#2 - In-game currency
In the Korean version, AG (Ace Gold) money is not present. It has Donkatsu Medals, which can be utilized to open a few classic and premium crates. Players stand a chance to win exciting rewards from these crates.
Players can likewise get this currency by finishing in-game tasks and events. They can also procure them as part of the every day login reward. Consequently, players can open more crates, spending no actual money.
However, the global variant abstains from offering any such medal, and all the premium and classic crates can only be opened with coupon scraps or by spending UCs.
#3 - Exclusive rewards
PUBG Mobile Korea has better rewards regarding login/sign-in events, just like other exclusive crates and events, most of which can be opened with four Donkatsu medals.
It also includes more skins and outfits than the global variant which can be easily gained from the crates for free.Published 06 Jan 2021, 12:21 IST
