There are various versions of the massively popular battle royale PUBG Mobile. From Global to Korean, there are also Taiwan and Vietnam versions of this title.

The ban of PUBG Mobile came as a nasty shock to battle-royale mobile gamers in India. Ever since then, Indian mobile gamers have shifted their attention to the Korean version of PUBG Mobile.Β 

The Global version of PUBG Mobile may not be accessible to Indian players anymore, so many gamers can opt for the Korean version as the game mechanics in both the games are very similar.

However, despite its similarities, there are a few differences that capture the attention of battle royale enthusiasts. This article points out a few of the differences between the Korean version and the others.

Major differences between the PUBG Mobile (Korea) and other versions

The major differences are as follows:

1. Events

2. Rewards

The Korean version of PUBG Mobile has also been known to give away good rewards to its players. On multiple occasions, it has been noticed that the rewards offered by the Korean version were much better than the Global version. The daily bonus rewards have also been appreciated by many players.

3. In-game currency

The Korean version has its very own Donkatsu Medal which can be used by players as in-game currency. Players win Donkatsu Medals by taking part in events. They can then use these medals to unlock classic and premium crates without spending a penny. The Daily Login Reward is also given to players in the form of Donkatsu Medals.

One of the major highlights of the Korean version is that the players get access to updates faster than the Global version. They can download the updated version a few days before everyone else and this gives them a chance to be ahead of the curve compared to players on the other versions.

Disadvantages of PUBG Mobile (Korea)

Even if the Korean version of PUBG Mobile is getting a lot of attention from Indian mobile gamers, there are a few disadvantages of this version which cannot be overlooked. They are:

  • Players cannot connect their Global ID with this version and a separate ID needs to be created.
  • Players cannot connect with their Facebook friends. If they want to add friends, they need to do it manually, using the User ID.
  • Royale Pass cannot be requested from players who play the Global version of PUBG Mobile.
  • Players need to have an international credit card or a debit card to buy Royale Pass.
  • Players cannot be a part of clans in the Global version.
