PUBG or Player Unknown's Battle Ground made its first global appearance 4 years ago. The game was launched for PC gamers first. However, the mobile version was launched in 2018. Tencent Games with Krafton Inc. distributed the game globally, and the game was created by Lightspeed & Quantum Studios, an in-house agency of Tencent Games. Till last month, PUBG Mobile has been downloaded over 100 million times. Likewise, it has profited over $ 4.3 billion from the Market.
In Classic mode, a group of 100 players is stationed on a certain map. The contestants are dispatched there through a plane and land on with their parachute only. Apart from their customized clothes, players do not have extra baggage to affect their gameplay at the beginning of the match. Armors, weapons, several types of equipment, and vehicles are given throughout the map. Players are required to search and explore towns, buildings, and other sites to collect them. Some areas are abundant with these items. Those are marked as high loot zones and are more likely to have close combats. Players can also kill their opponent to collect the gears and upgrade theirs. The Classic mode here can be described as the Last-Man-Standing-Survival mode. The player or group that remains alive, eliminating others, until the end of the game will be declared the winner. Players can enter the match as Solo (The player itself), Duo (Two players together), or Squad (Four players in each team). The playable area on the map shrinks down every few minutes. Players are warned on their screen about the safe zone marked and are required to reach there before the time ends. Straying outside the play zone after the time stops, proves to be as lethal as costing the avatar's health points to zero. In the safe zone, some areas are marked as red zones and bombs drop in there for a while. Then the mark shifts to another area. Also, some loot boxes are distributed through planes on the map while the game is ongoing. These boxes contain items that are generally unobtainable on the map. Signaling the players with a cloud of visible red smoke, the area around the boxes gets a high chance for encounters.
The Evoground Mode has two types of gameplays viz Payload and Rage Gear. In Rage Gear mode, players have to chase and take down their opponent from inside their vehicle. In Payload mode, grenade launchers and rocket launchers can be used to shot the enemies. Players get respawned as soon as they are killed. Though they have to look out for the shrinking play zone.
In Arena, there are 4 different modes to play. The Arena Training mode allows the players to sharpen their skills. In Gun Games, players are given random guns and the guns change as soon as they make a kill. Domination mode requires the players to capture and hold at least 2 areas of the given 3 to ensure their win. Team Deathmatch is a 4v4 mode where 4 players fight with another 4 on a small map. Players can choose and customize their weapon loadout. Different weapons and attachments unlock as the players' Evo level increases. Assault and Ruins are two modes of Team Death Match.
Quick Match, Sniper Training, and War are 3 types of Arcade games. Quick Match allows 28 players to fight. In war, the target is to obtain 80 points. Players participate in Squads (group of 4). In sniper training mode, players have to take down enemies with snipers. On the map, there will be provided snipers and pistols. No assault rifle or SMG is available throughout the map. Players can enhance their sniping skills here.
The game can also be played in First Person Perspective (FPP) and Third-Person Perspective (TPP).
B. In-Game Currency
Players earn in-game currency after every single match. The amount is based on the performance of the player during the match. This currency can be used to buy crates from the store. These crates consist of cosmetic items to customize the characters and weapons of the players.
It consists of 4 main maps viz Erangel, Sanhok, Miramar, and Vikendi. Another map titled Livik made its debut in the July 2020 update of the game.
