PUBG released on iOS and Android in the US

The World's biggest "battle royale " video game competition become more competitive on Monday with the announcement of Playerunknown's battlegrounds is free for the mobile version across the world. Playing the game on iOS requires an iPhone 5s or newer, though an iPhone 6 or newer will offer the best results, according to Tencent.

In one month, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds - you might have heard of it - had amassed 3 million players on Xbox One. But now, PUBG is live on mobile in the U.S. on both Android and iOS.

Unlike the original game on the PC, PUBG Mobile allows players to pick up items automatically, have access to aim assist as well as a variety of on-screen controls, including steering and pedals for driving. Pretty much, if you've seen a streamer pull off some ridiculous stunt on the PC version, you can do it on the mobile version, too. However, both provide an exceptional battle royale experience on touchscreens, so players just have some decisions to make as to which games they want to spend their time and money on going forward. And Android version of Fortnite is coming at a later date. A counter has also been added to the initial drop, counting the number of players remaining on the plane. This is not explicitly stated anywhere, but apparently the game starts out novice players predominantly against CPU players, and as they level up, the ratio of real players to bots increases. Get ready to land, loot, and do whatever it takes to survive and be the last man standing! Well, help is on the way as the game developer today released a maintenance update to address these issues and many more. In fact, Bluehole says it's not happy with the current performance gains, but at the same time, it has managed to release a mobile version of PUBG. PUBG is available on Xbox as well, but the game does not support cross platform data access while Fortnite does.
