PUBG Mobile is very popular in India and almost every Indian gamer plays this game. But most of the Indian gamers do not play the PC version of PUBG. Although PUBG Mobile is a copy of PUBG PC.
So why do people not play PUBG PC? Well, to get the actual answer to this question we have to look at the history of PUBG.
PUBG Origin: History of Battle Royale
PUBG (Player’s Unknown Battle Ground) is an online multiplayer battle royale game that was developed and published by PUBG Corporation.
PUBG Corporation is a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole.
PUBG was initially designed by Brendan Greene, and the concept of Battle Royale is inspired by the Japanese film Battle Royale.
In December 2017, PUBG was first released for PC. In a few months after the release, PUBG PC gets huge popularity in the video gaming world.
Due to the high demand for PUBG PC in the market. Bluehole decided to make the mobile version of PUBG.
But at that time Bluehole does not have any experience in mobile gaming platforms. So they did a partnership with a Chinese video game company Tencent.
Therefore Bluehole Company gave the blueprint of PUBG to Tencent. After that started designing for PUBG Mobile.
Finally, In September 2018, PUBG Mobile was officially released for Android and iOS.
PUBG Mobile has changed the whole mobile gaming experience. It was one of the most played video games of all time with having more than 600 million times downloads.
PUBG PC vs PUBG Mobile
Although there are many differences between PUBG PC and PUBG Mobile. But today I will talk about 5 major differences between these.
Paid vs Free
PUBG PC is a paid game on the other hand PUBG Mobile is a free game.
PUBG PC is available on the digital distribution platform Steam, X-BOX, and PS 4. Where players can buy the game and then download it.
PUBG Mobile, on the other hand, is freely available on Google Play Store for Android and Apple App Store for iOS.
The UI (User Interface) of PUBG PC and PUBG Mobile is totally different. PUBG Mobile is controlled thru touches and triggers. While PUBG PC can be played thru keyboard and mouse.
PUBG Mobile is easy to play and more understandable than PUBG PC. As people are more familiar with smartphones than a computer.
PUBG Moblie has many game modes, unlike the PC version. Apart from the Classic mode, PUBG Mobile has the Arcade and Arena mode.
There is also a mode called PlayerLab mode containing Bluehole Mode, RageGear-TDM, PayLoad mode.
There are many differences in the gameplay of both versions. PUBG Mobile has the auto pickup of items on the map, while PC players have to manually pick up and attach items in their inventory.
Minimap indicators are also absent on PUBG PC, which makes it difficult to spot enemies when they shoot.
In the PC version gameplay is slower and feels more real; weapon recoil is much more and so is the availability of 16x scopes, which frightened players getting hit by snipers.
Graphics and Overall Looks
No doubt PUBG PC is much better-looking than PUBG Mobile and it gives the players a more realistic experience.
Because the PC version uses a lot more resources than PUBG Mobile.
In May 2019, Due to the in-game violence such as blood shud, Mobile was banned in China.
However, Tencent did release a cloned version of PUBG called Game for Peace with certain changes and is currently available in China.
In September 2020, Due to the China-India war, PUBG Mobile and 117 other Chinese apps were banned in India.
