Earlier this week, a live action trailer for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was released and it quickly went viral. There were two main reason for this; firstly it was excellently produced and exciting to watch, but the real surprise was that it was advertising PUBG on mobile phones. Yes, you heard right, PUBG, the game Team Eurogamer play way too much of, is now playable on Android and iOS devices. Bonkers!
Getting to play PUBG on mobile is a bit of a mission, however, as it’s currently only available to download in China. Happily, there are a couple of ways to trick the system and play the game in your own region and it’s not especially hard to do. I mean, if I can work out how to get it working on my iPhone 6, surely you can.
Be warned though, it turns out there are actually TWO official PUBG mobile games available to download. PUBG: Army Attack puts an arcade style spin on the original concept and includes things like naval battles, whilst PUBG: Exhilarating Battlefield (or PUBGEB as I’ve decided to call it) comes much closer to recreating the feel of PUBG on the PC.
