PUBG Mobile has become the hottest smartphone game in the world this year, and is beyond a doubt the most popular game in India right now. PUBG Mobile‘s popularity is credited to the fact that a game with open possibilities could even fit into the small form factor of a smartphone. But the makers of the game, Tencent Games, have shown that it is possible to develop the game on mobile that everyone wants to play. PUBG or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds as it is called on PC, Xbox One and PS4, has been shortened for the sake of convenience when launched for mobile.

PUBG Mobile, like its PC version, is a demanding game when played with the highest quality options on mobile. And hence generally requires some powerful specs to run best.
