PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been very popular among the gaming community ever since it was released as early access title, the game has taken the battle royale formula to another level that Epic Games introduced Battle Royale as a free-to-play mode for Fortnite and now it seems that one Chinese developer has straight up cloned PUBG.
A footage of a mobile game has made its way on the internet, which you can see above, and yes it looks almost exactly the same as PUBG itself and can be labeled as PUBG mobile clone. Furthermore, the developers of this PUBG mobile clone have done very little to even change anything in the game.
This mobile game reportedly supports up to 50 players in each match, and what this game has to do with Terminator 2? you might ask and frankly, even I don’t know and even Terminator 2 theme playing in the background doesn’t make it look or feel awesome.
It will interesting to see how Bluehole will respond to this mobile clone of their popular title as the studio was not amused by Epic Games introducing Battle Royale in Fortnite as a free-to-play mode.
We’ve had an ongoing relationship with Epic Games throughout PUBG’s development as they are the creators of UE4, the engine we licensed for the game. After listening to the growing feedback from our community and reviewing the gameplay for ourselves, we are concerned that Fortnite may be replicating the experience for which PUBG is known.
In related news, PUBG has surpassed Dota 2 on Steam in regards to its concurrent players which recently were over 2 million players. However, the PUBG has also surpassed League Of Legends in Korean PC Bangs.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a multiplayer survival game currently in early access for PC and will launch for consoles later.
