PUBG's mobile spin-off gets a gloriously terrible CG trailer

Fortnite boasted bigger user numbers than PUBG in October

Details on the new location have been fairly limited to this point, but Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene has released a few screenshots in the past which have confirmed features such as a prison, plenty of vegetation, and urban sprawl.

Initially it seemed like Xbox One X owners were going to get a silky smooth 60fps experience, with Brendan Greene being quoted as saying "Definitely on Xbox One X, 60FPS" in GamesTM issue 194. However, that might take a while to bring to the console version. That's why we're doing Game Preview because I think the great thing about the console is it's a locked hardware system, so we can do really specific tweaks that tune it for those systems. "The last time I saw it, it was running at about 30 to 40", the Game Director explained. Although the latter title proved to be the more profitable, and the second most profitable game in Eastern markets, Fortnite is clearly making in-roads on its player base. Despite its popularity, the most constant complaint from many players is how unoptimized it is. We do know that PUBG will support HDR on the Xbox One S/X.

Longtime video game media icon Geoff Keighley broke the news earlier this week on his Twitter account, confirming that the gameplay trailer for the long-awaited new PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds desert map can be seen on December 7th during the annual Game Awards event.

An article Kotaku UK spotted in the Chinese press shows the mobile version is meant to have all of the PC's features and play in the same way. While it is still unknown if these games will ever come to the West, it is pretty interesting to see that there will be two official PUBG adaptations coming to the Android in the near future. Are you picking up PUBG when it launches on December 12?
