“Winner winner Chicken dinner.”
PUBG is currently locked in a gaming war with Fortnite for whose battle royale is a better gameplay. Fortnite recently launched cross-platform online gaming between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with PC and Mac. They have also tried 20v20 squads and they’re constantly upgrading the games’ accessories, while being a free game.

PUBG cost $29.99, so in some ways, the pressure is on PUBG Corporation and Bluehole Studio Inc. to make the game just as good as or even better than its rivals.
PUBG provides players with a more realistic feel to the battle royale and the mobile update definitely widens the possible reach for the game.
