PUBG Mobile Has Now Launched In North America & Europe

That was quick...

The war between Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is fascinating to watch, and a new front has opened up between the two on mobile. PUBG first popped onto mobile in China, as Bluehole teamed up with local publishing giant Tencent to create a bespoke free to play version of the game for phones and tablets, however, it was only out in that region. Then Epic decided to go for the iOS market last week as a counter move, and that’s seemingly forced PUBG to spread from Chinese mobiles to other regions.

As of yesterday the game made the jump to iOS and Android in the US and Canada, but it’s quickly spread to other countries and regions. You can now get it in the UK, Europe and more regions are to follow. Head here for iOS, and here for Android. If you want to search for yourself, the game you’re after is “PUBG Mobile” from Tencent, and not any of the millions of feeder apps that opportunists have thrown onto the app store.

Sick burn there about being the “true” Battle Royale experience. I guess Bluehole are still bitter about this whole rivalry?

We don’t have a full list of regions where it is available, and in fact, it’s so hurried a release that the game’s website is still only in Chinese! Still, you can download it now and get playing on either platform if you’re in North America and Europe.

    I’ve just set this to download when I get home over my WiFi, no harm in giving it a go is there?

    Went onto the Play Store for this and even though it says works with Pixel 2 in the description, it says it isn’t compatible with any of my devices?! Odd!
