Limited ‘Soft Launch’ of Official PUBG Mobile Game Surprises Everyone (Not Really…)
In a bid to counter the rising popularity of Fortnite – not to mention the imminent release of Fortnite Mobile – PUBG Mobile has been released in Canada. The game is billed as the “officially licensed PUBG on mobile”, and is said to “perfectly recreate the PC version.” that’s a bold, but reasonable, claim – footage from the Chinese pre-release, which you can see below, is an impressive recreation.The game, which was developed by Lightspeed and Quantum Studio and published by Chinese company Tencent, is now available to download in the Canadian Google Play Store.The Google Play Store in Canada suddenly offered to download the PBUG game on phone.This particular soft launch is good news for two reasons.Utilizing user feedback, the game has already received a number of upgradations, with the ninth optimization patch being released on 2nd March, which has improved vehicle feedback, sound effects, matchmaking and more.There’s no doubt that mobile devices have gotten extremely powerful, but I do wonder how the game will hold up.While the vast majority of PUBG players play the PC version, the Xbox community has been steadily growing as well. One of the top tier Battle Royal mode games is Player Unknown’s: Battlegrounds. No word on an iOS version at this time. You will need Android Lollipop 5.1.1 or above and 2GB (or more) of RAM.PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile impressions are now scattered at best, but it seems that much like Fortnite, the game runs well if you’ve got a semi decent phone, but does suffer from a lack of physical controls.
