Although you'd be tempted to think that we're talking about a classic shooter, the gaming experience was so different from the FPS games that it generated a lot of fans in a relatively short time.
The objective of the game is still the same as you have to battle it out with 99 other players on an 8×8 km island, by collecting weapons, armor and travelling long distances using a range of vehicles. The app is now invite-only until further notice, and an Android release is expected to follow soon.
As with most PUBG Xbox updates, the game will need to go offline for around 30 minutes to make way for the new patch, starting at 1AM PDT / 9AM CET - which is 8AM GMT. So, understanding that the Xbox One version of the game has surpassed five million players should be great news, but such is not the case.
I've also played "Brothers In Arms" on the same device, and PUBG seemed comparatively tiresome with graphics. Get ready to land, loot, and do whatever it takes to survive and be the last man standing!
The media has been running with the PUBG Mobile bots story for the last few days, assuring players that they aren't actually good at the game.
PUBG released worldwide on mobile just ahead of Fortnite, the beta of which launched March 12 on iOS devices only. For Android users you will require Android version 4.3 and up.
