PUBG is a fast-growing online battle royale game. This mobile version called PUBG Mobile is practically non-existent. Therefore, in this article, we will explore how to play this game on PC.
What is PUBG mobile?
PUBG Mobile (Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds) is a project of the Timi Studio Group (made up of 6 development teams) under the wing of publisher Tencent Games. Previously, the developers dealt with Honor of Kings, now known as Arena of Valor, as well as other games. Now their portfolio has been replenished with a mobile battle royale shooter powered by Unreal Engine 4. The project is based on the PC version of PUBG and is a stripped-down copy of it. It contains maps from the original, weapons, and even rules, and the interface with controls is adapted for mobile devices.
PUBG mobile differs from PUBG PC, primarily in that it is free. The mobile version has simplified graphics, which can be seen in the visual effects. Because of this, the game is less demanding on the system characteristics of the PC. The desktop version will work without freezing even on a weak computer.
The essence of the battle royale concept is to become the last player standing. The player who will survive in the end will be the winner. But at the beginning, up to a hundred players land on the island at once. They begin to collect weapons and equipment scattered across the territory for defense and attack. So that the participants in the battle do not constantly sit out and collide with others, the game location is constantly decreasing.
