There are two mobile games based on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in the works, and while we don’t know a whole lot about one, the other is already out in China and people are able to jump in and play to their heart’s content. The mobile games come as a result of the massive Chinese company Tencent having purchased the rights to publish PUBG in China. One is a simple rendition of the regular game ported to mobile, and the other features more vehicular-based combat, with development handled by Tencent Timi Studio.
PUBG: Exhilarating Battlefield is coming from Lightspeed & Quantum Studio, meanwhile PUBG: Army Attack is the land, sea and air combat game from Tencent Timi Studio. You can see some footage of Army Attack captured by a Chinese player, if you’re curious, in the video below.
Tencent hasn’t announced just yet if we’re going to see an English version of the game coming westward, but given PUBG’s massive, mind-blowing popularity, the likelihood of us seeing a localized version seems quite high. As far as the game itself, it’s very similar to the type of gameplay you’d see in PUBG itself.
What do you think about the mobile game? Would you play it if a western version became available?
