PUBG Mobile - The Best Battle Royale To Go

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds revolutionized the battle royale genre.

A different mobile game

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) starts its life as a PC game before heading to console and mobile. Mobile games tend to have a reputation for being terrible, but PUBG Mobile is different.

PUBG

Defining a whole new genre

PUBG Mobile is the defining battle royale game of the whole genre. It features a realistic setting, unlike Fortnite, and more than 20 million active daily users. The beauty of PUBG Mobile is that it can run on even mid-range smartphones.

Graphics and Audio quality will depend on your device

The game takes a significant downgrade to graphics and audio, depending on your device. When players start the game for the first time, it will automatically choose the best settings. Playing on a high-powered device like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is comparable to the console version. But even low-powered devices like the Nokia 6.2 can handle PUBG mobile just fine with a lower resolution.

The game gives players granular control over the resolution, coloration, and a handful of other settings. You can also reduce the frame rate if you find your hardware is struggling to handle the game.

Audio is still essential for game-play, and audio quality has no reduction in the mobile version. You can still hear directional shots and footsteps if you play with a good set of headphones.

No plot, just survive

There's no plot to be found in PUBG Mobile; instead, your only goal is to survive. Players drop down on a map with 99 other players. There are a few arcade modes with different rules, but the classic mode is where you will find the most players.

PUBG Mobile features a lot of information on display at once, with controls that are fluid and tight. You can custom edit the information UI to suit your play style or re position them. The default UI feels very cluttered, so its recommended to customize it to your preference. Mobile touch screen controls are serviceable, but PUBG mobile is playable with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

Team play and voice chat are vital to winning the round. Players can invite their friends to create a proper team, or they can accept random pairings with strangers. Voice chat is on for teams by default, and you can often hear background noise from other players.

One-life approach keeps players invested

PUBG Mobile is one of the more unique thrills available in online gaming. Its one-life approach means players get invested in their characters during each round. The game is also approachable for beginners since everyone starts on even footing.

The mobile version of the game does feature some skill-based matchmaking, so newbies don't get stomped. If there aren't enough players on at the time, the game will fill the match with bots. Bots are easy to spot and kill due to their erratic behavior. The developers are consistently updating the game to make it a better experience for newbies and vets alike.

TL/DR

PUBG Mobile is one of the best port jobs of any PC game. The game's mobile controls are well-suited to touchscreens. PUBG Mobile is an absolute blast to play with friends while on the go.
