PUBG Mobile Out Now, Goes Toe-to-Toe with Fortnite Mobile

War never changes. Except when it gets smaller and smaller.

Surprise. PUBG is available for iOS and Android in the United States and Canada. Other regions are coming very soon, according to a recent Tweet from the official PUBG Twitter account.

We already knew Tencent was testing an English language PUBG for Android, but the company isn't wasting any time getting a full release out the door. It's not surprising; Fortnite Battle Royale for mobile is currently invite-only, but it's still cleaning up on the App Store. Tencent and PUBG Corp seemingly aren't content to lean back while Fortnite-loving celebrities potentially steal away PUBG's player base.

Download PUBG on iOS or on Android. Both devices have surprisingly low requirements, since PUBG mobile's graphics have been stripped down so the game runs smoothly mobile platforms. All our tips, tricks, and guides for PUBG still apply on the mobile port of the game, so dig in.
