PUBG was great until it met its competition in the form of Fortnite and now, Fortnite is one of the biggest games on the planet with over millions of players globally. PUBG took its great leap by making it available on smartphones, and to be honest, that was indeed a great move.
Players who didn’t have the privilege of buying a good computer to play the game can now play it on their smartphone. Fortnite has also done the same thing but, it’s currently in beta, and the beta was available for iOS, and finally, Android users will able be able to get their hands on the game as it is now available on the platform as well.
The main reason behind the delay is pretty straightforward as they were working on different tweaks and all other things just to ensure that Android users get a smooth experience. When you’re that big and popular, you have to take care of every little detail. Many iOS users have said that the Fortnite on the phone feels the same so its fair enough to assume that Android users also get that kind of experience.
Now, there could be one issue if you play on mobile, I’m talking about the controls, as you already know this is a competitive game and players are accustomed to playing with their controllers [Gaming Consoles] or mouse and keyboard [on PC], so switching directly to mobile could be a bit tough but, if you have played any fps games from Gameloft or EA on smartphone then, you’re pretty fine. So, having a little experience is recommended as you’ll get the hang of it, or else you might face the rage of others.
