The real battle royale is not happening between players in PUBG Mobile, it's happening right now on the App Store. Both PUBG Mobile and Fortnite have been ported to mobile and are fighting over iPhone and iPad users. It is kind of reminiscent of Android and iOS, if you think about it. Both games offer basically the same features, both are free, both were available on other platforms before coming to mobile, and most importantly both want to hook you on their ecosystem. The more players each game recruits the better the competition, and hopefully that leads to more players spending money on whatever DLC or IAPs each games decides to offer in the future.
So far reviews are good for both games, praising their high quality graphics, controls, matching systems an so on. As mentioned above, both games are free so you can try each of them out and decide which is best for you.
If you have never heard about PUBG Mobile or Fortnite, they're online multiplayer battle royale games. Hundreds of players are dropped off on giant maps and must search for weapons and gear to battle to the last man standing. PUBG Mobile features 100 player battles on an 8x8 km battlefield, high quality graphics powered by Unreal Engine 4, HD audio, a large selection of weapons, vehicles and voice chat. It is available now for free on the App Store.
