PUBG MOBILE is developed by Tencent Games and PUBG Corporation and based on PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, the original PC and Xbox One gaming phenomenon that took the world of interactive entertainment by storm in 2017. Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to do battle in a winner-takes-all showdown. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone.
PUBG MOBILE is available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play. For more information, please visit the official PUBG MOBILE accounts on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
