This page explains how to download Mobile PUBG and play on Android and iOS devices, along with details on what it contains too.

Mobile versions of PUBG have been available in China for quite a while now, but it didn’t look as though we’d be receiving any versions of it in the West for quite some time. Well, it turns out that PUBG Mobile found its way onto the Canadian Google Play Store all of a sudden before being rolled out to other regions soon after.

PUBG Mobile is officially licensed, so it’s not a third party offshoot - it’s the real deal. You’ll still get all the frills that come with the PC and Xbox One battle royale experience, just condensed down into handheld form. Maps, weapons and everything that’s already in PUBG is accessible to players who want to outlast the competition on Android.

As PUBG Mobile has come as quite a surprise, there’s very limited information out there on how to get the game onto your device, what mobile platforms it’s actually compatible with and whether or not you can access it in your region.

To help you out, we’ve put together a guide that’ll take you through the ins and outs of PUBG Mobile. It’s also a game that’s still largely in development, so we’ll update this page with all the latest information over time. Stay tuned!

Make sure you visit our core PUBG Guide hub when you're done here. It contains all of the most important tips and tactics you need to win more games.

PUBG Mobile: Everything you need to know

Here’s everything you need to know about PUBG Mobile in one place.

Overview

  • PUBG Mobile is available worldwide.
  • PUBG Mobile is called PUBG Exhilarating Battlefield in China.
  • It's available on both Android and iOS devices.
  • It stays true to the PUBG experience on both Xbox One and PC. You’ll have access to all the maps, modes, weapons etc. Essentially, as an experience it remains unchanged for mobile devices.

    Thank you for this guide, I learned the arrival of these mobile games there are just a few days, and it is already available. This Lightspeed port is the best done, I'm going to test that but apparently it's huge hit in China.
