Best PUBG Mobile Alternatives (Battle Royale Games)

Not that you would need one, but, if you are looking for PUBG Alternatives, here’s our handpicked list of some of the best ones.

PUBG Mobile can be said as the most popular online multiplayer game in India and it has been awarded the people’s choice best game of the year 2018 by Google Play. The game is based on previous mods that were created by Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene for other games, inspired by the 2000 Japanese film “Battle Royale.”  In the game, up to one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. The available safe area of the game’s map decreases in size over time, directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round.

1. Fortnite

Fortnite is one of the most popular Battle Royale games right now attaining highest viewership in Twitch, YouTube and other streaming platforms. It is developed by Epic Games and was released in 2017.

Fortnite Battle Royale is a player-versus-player battle royale game for up to 100 players, allowing one to play alone, in a duo, or in a squad. Weaponless players airdrop from a “Battle Bus” that crosses the game’s map. When they land, they must scavenge for weapons, items, resources, and even vehicles while trying to stay alive and attack other players, eliminating them. Over the course of time, the safe area of the map shrinks down in size due to an incoming storm; players outside that safe area take damage and can be eliminated if they fail to quickly evacuate. This forces the remaining players into tighter spaces and encourages player encounters. The last player, duo, or squad remaining is the winner.

Its popularity is evidence of the fact that it drew more than 125 million players in the first year of its release and earning hundreds of millions of dollars per month. Despite all these phenomenal numbers, it does not enjoy much success in the Indian subcontinent. This is mainly due to the fact that a lot of users like to game on their Android mobile phones and Fortnite for Android was released late last year when PUBG Mobile had already become a part of the culture of the region. In addition to that, Fortnite requires high-end hardware configurations to run. But if you own a device which meets its hardware requirements, you should try it out.

It is available on both Android and iOS. (Note: It is not released in the Google Play Store. One need to sideload it from Epic Game’s official website or the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store if using a Samsung device. Check the system requirements before installing it.)

2. Rules Of Survival

Rules of Survival is one of the first games in the battle royale genre. It is developed and published by NetEase Games and claims to have more than 150 million players registered worldwide. It is based on the standard form of the battle royale genre, where players fight to be the last person (or team) alive. Players can choose to enter the match in different modes: Solo, Duo, Squad (four players), or a Fireteam (five players) and the last person or team left alive wins the match.  The battle royale game includes 120 players in intense PvP action. It is very similar to PUBG Mobile in terms of gameplay and controls. It has a great range of weapon collection and the in-game graphics look great as well.

It is available on both Android and iOS.

3. Garena Free Fire

Garena Free Fire is yet another popular battle royale game which has the potential to be a good alternative of PUBG Mobile. Developed by Garena Interactive Holding Limited in late 2017, Free Fire was the second most downloaded game on the Google Play store in Q4 2018 and was the fourth most-downloaded game worldwide in 2018 on the iOS and Google Play Store combined. It received approximately 182 million downloads in 2018 and grossed approximately $19.3 million in monthly revenue as of December 2018.

It is based on the battle royale genre with 50 players parachuting on a remote island where they scavenge for weapons, items, resources, and even vehicles while trying to stay alive and attack other players, eliminating them. The playing area shrinks in size over the course of time. The last player or team remaining wins the game. Controls are easy and gameplay is nice making it an apt alternative of PUBG Mobile.

It is available on both Android and iOS.

4. Hopeless Land: Fight for Survival

Hopeless Land: Fight for Survival is a battle royale game developed by HERO Game and is targeted towards low-end devices. It is one of the lightest battle royale game available. The battleground in the game is themed according to Asian terrain and architecture. At one time, it supports up to 121 players who will try to eliminate every other opponent in the game to be the last man standing while searching for weapons, armors, and vehicles in the meantime. One can achieve very respectable frame rates even if it is being run from a budget device. The smooth gameplay does not mean that its developers have compromised on the graphics.

It is available on both Android and iOS.

5. CrossFire Legends

CrossFire Legends is an online tactical first-person shooter developed by Smilegate Entertainment in partnership with Tencent Games (The one responsible for PUBG Mobile). With its beta version launching in 2008, its popularity has increased by leaps and bounds with over 660 million players worldwide. It was the world’s top-grossing online game as of 2014 and went on to become one of the highest-grossing video games of all time, having grossed USD 10.8 billion in lifetime revenue, as of 2018.
