Tencent brings one of their most popular shooting games to mobile. Players are getting simplified controls, updated graphics, and gamepad support.
Survive the battle-royale
This game comes with a separate server - you won’t encounter any PC players online. It makes sense since the controls are a little more difficult to use on the phone. Actions and other movements are now gesture-based. Also, some mechanics that were manual on PC have become automatic on Android.
Unlike its PC version on initial release, PUBG mobile has fewer bugs. That’s not to say that the game is lag-free. Due to such a large player base, frame drops and stuttering are part of the gameplay. By changing some of your phone’s settings, you may have a lower disconnect rate.
The file itself is somewhere between 2 to 4GB, but this will change as updates come. Make sure you have at least 20% free storage on your device if you plan to play beyond casual. For an optimal experience, you want an Android 9.0, but any other version can run the game.
There are also graphics adjustments that allow you to play at a lower resolution if you have an older phone. Lower settings on newer models can also provide less lag.
Kill to win
PubG mobile delivers what its PC players expect in terms of gameplay. The complexity and graphics remain outstanding features. While the frequent updates are great, they also compel you to update your system.
