You know how I had to give all my info to China to play PUBG on my phone? Well now if you live in North America you can just grab it from the Play or App Stores! You will need Facebook to log in and keep all your data, but other than that just download it and go nuts!
If you are somewhat decent at using your phone for games or understand the PUBG concept it is a great time to start playing because most people are still just trying to figure it out right now. It is kind of like PUBG on easy mode out there. I have a few dozen kills and a second place finish after just three matches. Meanwhile The Paladin has already feasted on that sweet chicken dinner.
It looks like they have also upped the graphical fidelity a bit from the Chinese release. The windows and house interiors are still gone, but there is more grass around, and the shadow draw is just a little further out. Still not great compared to the Xbox One or PC releases, but pretty good for a phone game. A matter of fact it runs so well, Bluehole may want to ask Tencent to give their other versions of the game a once over just to get some extra FPS out of them.
All in all this is a great mobile game. I am amazed with what Tencent has accomplished. Hopefully we will see the other maps and more content show up soon.
