Phones are now pretty damn powerful, and capable of driving some impressive looking games. For many, a mobile phone is considered a gaming platform, and more and more publishers are looking to push content to the Android and iOS stores.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds‘ Chinese publisher Tencent is aiming to port the hugely successful PC game to mobile devices. The PUBG mobile game is being described as a “full fledged mobile port” which will allow “players jumping over to mobile … to take advantage of their play on PC and maintain a consistent experience.”
Sounds a little too good to be true, but according to the (Google translated via Kotaku) press release, it’s what Tencent is promising.
This port sounds mighty ambitious, but I’d love to give it a go. Unfortunately, as I don’t live in China, I won’t be able to! (At least, not without a complicated workaround…)
What do you make of this PUBG mobile game? Think it’ll be as successful as the PC version? Let us know.
