It’s no secret that Tencent is working really hard to improve the mobile version of PUBG since its release. It’s the reason why PUBG is still being downloaded by everyone and the daily number of active players is increasing day by day.
According to Gadgets 360, PUBG mobile has been downloaded more than 200 million times and it has more than 30 million daily active users. It’s a big achievement for Tencent and the team. Tencent revealed this achievement in a statement.
The numbers show that the game is a huge success in countries like China and India. One of the reasons for it being a success is because of how the game runs smoothly on new and old mobile devices. Tencent has even released a lite version of PUBG to allow everyone with low spec devices to experience the world of Battle Royale.
Interestingly this total number of downloads doesn’t include China which is the biggest market for the game. It was also reported last month that PUBG revenue surpassed that of Fortnite.
In other news, PUBG has been banned in China according to the reports. It’s not confirmed but according to the news, PUBG has been banned in China for blood and gore content. If it turns out to be true then PUBG will take a big hit as it’s the most popular in China.
Not only there, but PUBG has been also banned in India. It’s being reported by the India media that PUBG has been banned from Vellore Institute Of Technology. Vellore Institute Of Technology has banned PUBG because playing online games like PUBG disturbs fellow roommates and spoils the atmosphere of their hostel.
As for how to update PUBG, just go to your Play Store and download the latest update. You will be also required to download the new map from the map selection menu before you can start playing it tomorrow.
