Battle Royale games such as Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds or Fortnite are extremely popular on the PC and console. But what about Fortnite and PUBG for iOS and Android? Do they even exist? And if not, what are the alternatives?
Is there Fortnite for the smartphone and tablet?
Unfortunately not, but there is Fortnite on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and on the PC. Whether the game will ever be released for iOS or Android is questionable, but of course not impossible. Recently, it has only recently been discovered that Fortnite is the most played Battle Royale game. They lost PUBG with that. However, it has to be said that Fortnite is also available on the PS4, while PUBG is only available for the Xbox One and the PC.
What do Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds look like?
Recently, two PUBG games were launched for the smartphone in China. To a PUBG Exhilarating Battlefields and another PUBG Army Attack. The developer Tencent has secured the rights to the franchise in China and already has millions of players. In the USA and Europe, there is no official PUBG iOS or Android game yet. According to the South Korean manufacturer PUBG Corporation, however, this situation is set to change. In addition to a smartphone and tablet version, PUBG will also be released for PlayStation 4 at some point in the future. But nobody can say exactly when this should be so far. Until now, the PC and Xbox One versions are in Early Access.
What is an alternative to iOS and Android?
Our team tested some Battle Royale games for iOS and Android, but the best was probably the game “Rules of Survival“. Here too, players are flown to an island and fight either against each other (solo) or partly also against each other (in teams). Weapons and other items (HP, helmets, vests, ammunition, visors, etc.) can be found in buildings and in nature. Rules of Survival is available in many different languages and several servers are available. These can be chosen before the game begins. If you want to have more than just combat, you can buy the Premium In-Game currency, with which you can customize your character. So you can buy clothes or special weapons in this game.
Every day there are different quests, with which you can open boxes where there are items or coins in them. Of course, there is also a ranking list and a level system. To advance a level you need points. These you get at the end of the game and depend on how many kills you have and on which place you survived. It takes some getting used to using the smartphone, but it is absolutely feasible. Running, aiming and shooting is easier than you can imagine at first glance. Bugs and mistakes in the game have never been made in our 5 hours of playing time. Everything went flawlessly and without lags.
Rules of Survival is also available for iOS and Android.
So if you need entertainment for traveling and are a big fan of Fortnite or PUBG, you can try Rules of Survival.
