PUBG or Player Unknowns Battle Grounds has been out for quite some time for the PC. But recently it made its way to both IOS and Android. I was surprised when I found out that PUBG is coming to mobile with such high graphics. Even though PUBG has its Pros and Cons, you have to admit that such a beautiful game running on a device that can fit inside your pocket is commendable.

The most important thing to see is that PUBG having a competition with Fortnite. Thus, they released the game for free on both Android as well as IOS. PUBG to be launched on mobile devices did a collaboration with Tencent Games. The game works at 60FPS on a mobile device, which is very impressive.

There are still many things that are not present in the mobile version of PUBG if we compare it to the PC version. There is only one map to play at, with a promise that more maps will be added in the near future. But nothing yet has really happened. If we compare the game with XBOX the textures are better, the frame rate is more stable and most importantly it hasn't crashed. Yes, it is a multiplayer game and having only touchscreen controls is not enough. Even though it is better than other shooter games but not that great. The way of playing with a joystick is still better.

After playing a few matches I started to get used to the controls, even if they’re nowhere near as sharp. But PUBG Mobile isn’t supposed to be better than the other versions, it just feels like a nice way to play the same game anywhere at any time. Tencent Games has still made a few good adjustments to the game like whenever you walk over a gun the character will automatically pick up the gun as well as the ammo. Some major improvements have also been made with the textures of the game to make it suitable for mobile. If a person is playing without headphones, they should have no problem. Neither are there any microtransactions/In-app purchases inside the game nor any advertisements. The mobile version even has some progression mechanics like getting rewards for daily login, seasons to work towards time rewards.

Due to its easy accessibility players can connect their Facebook account with PUBG and play directly with their friends.

PUBG Mobile is a remarkable technical achievement and deserves commendation for being a fully playable, feature-packed, and stable iteration of a demanding PC and console game. The touchscreen controls are difficult to handle, but nothing a little bit of practice cannot fix. Due to its stable servers, great graphics etc. PUBG will always have a special place in my heart.

RATING: 8.9/10
