About PUBG Mobile
Although PUBG was initially designed for just PC and Consoles, due to the incredible rate of growth of its popularity, the company released a mobile version of PUBG for mobile devices in China with Mandarin as the default language.
At first, PUBG mobile did not have as much popularity as expected of a game of its caliber due to the fact that Mandarin was its default language and there were some bugs in the game engine.
However, once the game was released in other languages including English and the bugs and game engine were fixed and updated, the game quickly became one of the best and most popular FPS battle royale game on Android and iOS mobile devices.
