  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds 5 million

Following a February debut in China and a soft launch for Android last week, the free, mobile version of "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" has gone live worldwide on iOS, with the Android edition expanding to cover North America through Google Play.

Chinese publisher Tencent has launched one of the biggest PC games in the world on iOS and Android devices around the world. While Fortnite requires iOS 11 and iPhones as old as the 6S, PUBG can run on iOS 9 and iPhones as old as the 6.

With the release of Fortnite on mobile devices, already making millions of dollars, it was no surprise that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds immediately followed up with their own mobile release. But now, PUBG is live on mobile in the United States on both Android and iOS. According to a recent report from The Verge, PUBG Mobile initially fills games with easy-to-kill AI bots, then gradually increases the number of real players as your level goes up.

So, if you did get a win in PUBG mobile in your first couple of games, we are really sorry to piss in your cornflakes, but we felt like it needed to be said before you remortgage your house for a pair of brown pants.
