PUBG Mobile Launching In North America Soon, Beta Now Active
The race for battle royale king is heating up! It’s become rather apparent lately that Epic Games’ Fortnite and Bluehole Studios’ PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds are competing for that elusive poultry feast when it comes to being the biggest kid on the playground. Each has made the move to give players action on the go, but PUBG Mobile has previously only been announced by Tencent Games for those in China. However, it looks like the title will be making its way West very soon!
It was recently revealed that PUBG Mobile will be heading for a North American launch. The good news is that the Beta is currently alive and well – the bad news is that it is only available for Android users in Canada at the moment. Unfortunately, no word has been given as to when it will head South. Here’s a bit more from the game’s description:
1. Officially licensed PUBG on Mobile
An authentic port of the PC version. 100 players are dropped on an enormous 8×8 km battlefield. Players fight to survive and eliminate each other through strategy and skill. The last one standing wins! Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!
2. Realistic Graphics and HD Audio
Unreal Engine 4 brings a phenomenal visual experience with detail rendering, an expansive HD map, and realistic scenes.
High-quality audio with 3D sound effects and 7.1 channel surround sound makes players feel like they are on the real battlefield.
3. Realistic Shooting
With a large selection of firearms, melee weapons, and throwables with realistic ballistics and trajectories, this is the perfect combat experience on mobile.
4. Travel in Style
Drive one of a variety of vehicles to escape from your foes or to stalk your prey.
5. Team-Up with Friends and Use Voice Chat
Invite friends to team-up, head into battle together and collaborate over voice chat.
6. Fair Gaming Environment
Armed with powerful anti-cheating mechanisms and optimized for many devices, ensuring a fun and fair environment for players.”
With Fortnite‘s mobile version heading to iOS (Android later), PUBG Mobile making its way to Android (iOS possibly later), and potential winner (probably not) FortCraft (yeah, that’s the actual name…) available on both, there’s no telling who will reign champion.
