Over the past year, players have been presented with many new game modes. The game also made various collaborations with many brands. Thanks to all this, it has reached a significant fan base in the field of mobile e-sports. The game, which has reached more than 600 million downloads worldwide, has 50 million daily active users. Of course, we should mention that China is excluded in this issue.
When we look at the modes added to the game last year; Survive Until Dawn, Darkest Night, Arena, Infection Heavy Weapon Mode and Winter Festival.
PUBG Mobile also appeared with working with popular movies, famous athletes and names that are fans all over the world. Among these collaborations, Alan Walker, with his two song partnerships, “On My Way” and “Live Fast”, collaborates with basketball superstars to bring together sports and play, and for the production of both in-game and real clothing with streetwear brand A BATHING APE. partnerships took place. PUBG Mobile also collaborated last year with productions from the TV and movie worlds such as The Walking Dead, Angry Birds, Godzilla, Resident Evil 2 and Mission Impossible.

PUBG Mobile’s head was constantly in trouble with cheaters. For this, Project BAN PAN was established. The Color Blind Mode was introduced for players with color blindness and collaborated with Global Green in the # Fight4theAmazon campaign to protect the rainforest.

Earlier this month, PUBG Mobile launched its 2nd anniversary celebration with the announcement of the “2gether We Play” Royale Pass Season 12 and the new giant update. Players will be able to jump from the sky to fun events such as Amusement Park and special prizes in Erangel.
All of these went down in history as the steps taken by PUBG Mobile last year. However, let’s go back a little bit more.
The PUBG game for PC, designed by Brendan Greene and developed by PUBG Corporation, was actually the beginning of everything. A year later, Tencent developed the mobile version of the game. The game, which first appeared in China on February 9, 2018, was presented to users on March 19, 2018, in the USA and 122 other countries. We can say that this is an advantage for the game that comes to both Android and iOS platform at the same time. Another advantage was, of course, that the game was the same as the desktop version, except for the controls.
While Battle Royale is just a mod, it has now become one of the most popular game genres of the world.
