PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds MOBILE or PUBG MOBILE continues to maintain longevity that keeps its loyal fan base.
Made optimal after each release, its user-centered game features, upcoming partnerships, and thriving community of gamers, solidifies PUBG MOBILE’s reputation as one of the first and best Battle Royale games out there, not only for veterans but for newcomers as well.
With significant game accolades under its name, being the highest-grossing game of 2020 with $2.6 billion (over PHP 133 billion) in revenue, and the 2018 Golden Joystick Awards winner of the Mobile Game of The Year category, new gamers have jumped in to try the PUBG MOBILE themselves.
However, its powerful features and content often confuse fresh blood on where to start, how to get the most out of their gaming experience, and why create a gaming journey with PUBG MOBILE.
Newcomer-Friendly Features and Updates
PUBG MOBILE provides an engaging step-by-step tutorial of the game basics, covering all the essential controls inside the combat zone, paired with generous rewards upon completion. It also offers features that provide PUBG MOBILE neophytes a smooth experience adjusting in-game and increasing their survivability on the battlefield after the tutorial phase.
The Recall Tower is one of those features. Added in the new Aftermath classic mode map, it gives players another chance to live. Teammates knocked down in water also now have a chance to be revived instead of instantly being eliminated from the battle.
PUBG MOBILE has also separated Ranked and Unranked modes. Before the update, players earned or lost rank points based on their performance in every match, determining their overall spot in the leaderboards. With the Unranked option, players can work on their skills and grind for levels and certain rewards without worrying about being demoted or hindering others from reaching higher leagues.
Despite debates on its effects on the game, the newly-implemented rank restriction prevents new gamers from being gunned down by veterans in every lobby.
Collaboration with Fan Favorites
PUBG MOBILE sets itself apart from competitors by bringing exciting collaborations to their growing community fanbase—covering music, sports, movies, and even automotive—combining maximized gaming experience and proactive support to fan favorites.
The game has partnered up with Spider-Man: No Way Home, enabling gamers the chance to swing through the combat zone using web-shooters while wearing a Spider-Man tracksuit and pitted its players, Godzilla and Kong, against Mechagodzilla in the game’s first-ever Player vs. Environment (PvE) mode known as Titans: Last Stand.
PUBG MOBILE’s other explosive collaborations in the previous years include Korean global girl group BLACKPINK; British-Norwegian DJ, YouTuber, and record producer Alan Walker; automotive company Tesla; League of Legends’ Arcane; as well as the classic anime title Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
PUBG MOBILE’s most recent partnership is with Jujutsu Kaisen, the beloved Japanese adventure manga series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami. It lets players meet and play as their favorite characters Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, Nobara Kugisaki, and Satoru Gojo through Cosplay Sets for use and collection in-game. It also introduces ‘Cursed Corpse Grenades,’ which summon ‘Boss Cursed Corpses’ that drop supplies when defeated.
In particular, PUBG MOBILE’s Philippine community seems to be loving the Cursed Corpse Grenades quite a lot. Since the collaboration’s official release, Filipino gamers have already posted hundreds of funny and clever videos and photos about them on different social media sites, showing just how much they enjoy using them for both witty and hilarious tactics.
‘Cursed Object Crates’ containing ‘Sealed Sukuna Fingers,’ the most recognizable objects in the anime, can also be found all over Erangel’s Ranked Theme mode. Collecting Sealed Sukuna Fingers provide players rewards and special achievements.
A Tight-Knit Mobile Community
PUBG MOBILE has made it possible for new and veteran players to gather outside the official game on social media sites, creating and nurturing an even more tight-knit community. This proves even more beneficial with the release of the new 8v8 Team Deathmatch special game mode, introducing entirely different team chemistry from the usual 4-man squad modes. Faster and more action-packed than other modes, it pushes combatants to connect, cooperate and communicate with their allies quicker and more profoundly to achieve 80 kills against other groups in the new Santorini map.
Best known for being a leading pioneer of the Battle Royale genre, the consistent bug and error fixes, improved performance and graphics, and engaging community content, solidifies the game as a must-try to both seasoned and novice gamers.
PUBG MOBILE ensures you’ll have the best time mowing down hundreds of opponents armed to the teeth, even if you’re only just starting.
