  • PUBG Tests Weapon Skins and Region Locking in New Update

PUBG Mobile gets a thumbs-up from us.

With the news of Fortnite garnering more moolah than PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in the month of February, Bluehole had to come up with a solution.

Who doesn't know about Fortnite right?

Actually, we didn't, and took on some more rounds to find that the game is not as bad as one would think.

The work-in-progress preview had been shown during Greene's March 23 talk at the Game Developers Conference, charting his progression from a developer of community modifications to the creative director at South Korean "PUBG" studio Bluehole Inc.

The games which are made by PUBG are generally made to get an angle on the opponents.

While I personally prefer Fortnite's aesthetics, I can appreciate PUBG Mobile and enjoy it as well. "It will offer a higher player density and shorter matches and we want to get it into your hands early this time around so we can use your input to make it a great experience for everyone". It's kept separate from the player customization, and players will need to click through to see the different acquired skins.

This new map may be just what the PUBG esports scene needs.

Conflicts Prevent diGenova From Joining Trump's Legal Team
President Trump claims plenty of good lawyers want to work with him - as two attorneys pulled out of joining his legal team. Trump's lead lawyer, John Dowd , resigned last week and former U.S. attorney Joseph diGenova joined the Trump team .

Fortnite feels more immediate.

One year of parachuting onto a deserted island, scrambling for weaponry and supplies, and then scheming, sneaking, and shooting in order become the last person standing out of 100 hopefuls. Both PUBGand Fortniteare now available on iOS (and Android, in the case of Greene's game). "It grows the genre", Greene added. This is because not only does Epic have a flagship game i.e. Fortnite, but they also have an fantastic product, in the form of Unreal Engine 4.

The game begins with all players jumping from a plane, with most players parachuting down to populated cities to begin searching for weapons and ammo.

Which is to be expected given the map's relatively diminutive proportions. These cosmetic unlockables allow players to personalize their weapons and give them a bit more flair on the battlefield. PUBG also has an entry price of $30.

Some eagle-eyed PlayStation 4 players have spotted that starting tomorrow, players will be able to purchase a Fortnite Battle Royale Starter Pack for the popular game.

"Note: Items do not transfer between the Battle Royale mode and the Save the World campaign".

Despite all that, Fortnite's success hasn't derailed PUBG or its colossal influence in the game industry.
