PUBG! One of the most popular games of 2018 for both PC and Mobile is causing a huge turn of the tide and bringing Battle Royale games back into the spotlight. In the latter parts of 2017, a new Battle Royale games seemed to be getting released every other day but PUBG has set the standards so high that it is the last man standing when it comes to the Battle Royale genre.
It was launched for Windows in 2017 and after its unbelievable success, a mobile version was released in 2018 for both Android and iOS devices. In the game, there are 100 people including you who are dropped on an island from an aeroplane. You are required to start your quest to be the last one remaining while collecting guns, grenades, and ammunition for offence, and first aid kits, bandages, and painkillers for healing. The aim is to kill as many people as possible while not giving an opportunity for others to kill you instead.
There are two types of versions of this game available
- PUBG for PC
- PUBG for Mobile
PUBG for PC
PUBG was originally created for PC users and it is played via steam. It is one of the toughest games when played on PC as you don’t get any indication where the person is shooting from and everything is manual, right from opening the door to collecting the ammo.
PUBG for Mobile
PUBG for Mobile is an easier and less intense version of PUBG for PC. This one is fairly easy as picking up and opening doors are automatic. If an enemy fires at you or nearby you, there is an indication mark displayed on the screen from which you can estimate the location of the enemy.
Can PUBG Mobile be played on PC?
Yes, PUBG for Mobile can be played on a PC. After the release of PUBG Mobile, the users were quick to try this version on their PCs using emulators. However, this caused a huge controversy as with the use of mouse and keyboard there was a huge advantage for emulator users over mobile users. Addressing this backlash, Tencent has now officially released an Android Emulator named Tencent Gaming Buddy Emulator which comes with support for PUBG Mobile. This gives all emulator players an opportunity to play PUBG Mobile on their PC along with other emulator players.
Does emulator give a better user experience than mobile?
Once you have installed PUBG Mobile on your PC via an emulator, you will get to experience the game at a frame rate of 60fps which is quite amazing. You will also be able to switch between low, HD, Full-HD, and even Ultra-HD resolution which was not possible in mobiles unless you had a costly high-end device. The Pro users will be able to tweak the engine’s performance by selecting their preferred memory, processor, and DPI settings. They will also be able to choose the quality from the following modes – Auto, Smooth, Balanced, and HD display.
The pro players who have a PUBG related YouTube channel will also be able to record their gameplay or live stream their gameplay directly on their channel. This was very hard to do when using the mobile version.
