Tencent's PUBG Mobile is Available for Download in the US Right Now

If you're looking to take your favorite PUBG moments on the go, PUBG Mobile has finally made its US debut. 


Not one to be left in the dust behind Epic Games' recent Fortnite Mobile release, Tencent has released the hotly-anticipated PUBG Mobile for iOS and Android users in the US today. After a soft launch last week in the Canadian Google Play Store, the mobile version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now up for grabs via the App Store for iPhone users and Google Play Store for Android owners. It's free to download and play, and it looks like a pretty faithful representation of the console and PC experience.

The 100-player strong battle royale will rage on now across mobile devices, with a recreation of the PC version for mobile devices that includes voice chat as well as special tweaks to make the game more mobile-friendly. You can automatically pick up items, use aim assist, and rely on on-screen controls to steer and drive vehicles.

If you're interested in playing, you'll need iOS 9.0 or later though you can use an iPhone as old as the iPhone 5S, so no need to upgrade your device just to take PUBG with you. Fortnite: Battle Royale's mobile edition does require you to have at least an iPhone 6S or newer, so it's obvious that was something taken into consideration when launching this mobile heavy-hitter.

Ready to take your chicken dinner on the go? Head to the App Store now.
