Chinese app ban: Top 4 picks if you are looking for similar smartphone games like PUBG

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 28 July 2020, 13:53 IST

PUBG Mobile is among the most popular games in India. Recent reports however, suggest that the game might be under scrutiny from the Indian government, and could possibly be banned in India.

If you are a PUBG enthusiast who is worried by this , you are not alone, but the good news is thar there are many popular alternatives than you can try as well.

1) Call of Duty, Mobile:

This game was launched in October 2019, and since then the game has rapidly grown to match the popularity of PUBG.

While it is a first person shooter first, it has a Battle Royale mode with map that even includes zombies. It does not have the variety of maps that PUBG offers, however you can choose a class for yourself.

The game also gets updated every month and new game modes and weapons are regularly added. It is available for free on Android and iOS.

2) Frotnite:

Fortnite is most likely the name that comes to your mind after PUBG when listing battle royales.

The cool thing about this game is that unlike PUBG Mobile, Fortnite on your smartphone supports cross platform functionality, so you can play against computer and console players.

While the aesthetics of the game distinguish it from PUBG, you also have build mechanics, where you're supposed to build walls, ramps, ceilings, roofs and floors to build fortifications around you.

This helps you take strategic cover when engaged in combat or even while using a med box.

3) Garena Free Fire: Rampage

This is surely one of the underdogs of the smartphone battle royales.

Regardless of as many as 100 million downloads, this game has not become as famous as PUBG, but we couldn't really find anything wrong with it.

You'll feel very much at home if you're coming from PUBG to this, except that the duration for a single battle royale is 10 minutes and 50 people can take part.

4) Battlelands Royale:

The only thing that comes to our mind when we play Battlelands Royale — “omg so cute”. It builds on the same method as other battle royales, however it with its own twist.

This game offers a top-down perspective and simplifies a lot of things. Like, only 32 players play in one match, dropping down on the map only takes seconds instead of taking forever with a parachute and because of all these simplifications you get non-stop, no-frills action.
