In the USA, players can already find PUBG Mobile on the respective App Store. In EU the game will also be available in a few hours. Some weeks ago PUBG Mobile was also released in two different versions in China.

Currently, Fortnite Mobile can only be played on iOS if you have received an invitation. Fortnite is not yet available on Android and nobody knows when it will be playable. Therefore PUBG Mobile is the perfect alternative for smartphone players. We have already tested a similar game Rules of Survival for you.

Here you are also in a merciless struggle for survival and can survive against 99 other players. There can only be one. You have the choice either to play as a team with your friends or to go into battle alone.

PUBG is more realistic than Fortnite. Critics often dismiss Fortnite as “child’s play” because it is more comic-style. At Fortnite, players also have the option to build buildings, towers or walls, and they can farm resources such as wood. With PUBG, on the other hand, you can also use vehicles. This is not yet possible at Fortnite. Which game is better is purely a matter of taste.

Controlling Battle Royale games like Fortnite Mobile and PUBG Mobile is a real challenge. Due to the cross display at Fortnite, smartphone players have a small disadvantage. On the PC, for example, players have much more precise and faster control than on a smartphone. But if you master the controls you will enjoy the game very much.
