PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) took the mobile gaming realm by storm after hitting the store shelves last year.
Taking its skyrocketing popularity into consideration, Tencent Games launched an official emulator so that avid gamers who fancy playing their favorite games on their desktop or laptop can enjoy mobile version of its well-received online multiplayer battle royale game.
Despite lagging behind Epic Games’ equally well-received online video game Fortnite, PUBG Mobile continues to garner huge popularity in India.
In fact, a recently surfaced report suggests PUBG Mobile was the most downloaded mobile game during the first half of 2018.
It is imperative for you to have a high-end smartphone that can churn out the high frame-rates without breaking a sweat.
Much to the delight of avid gamers that do not have a capable smartphone, there’s another way to experience fast and smooth gameplay and it involves using an emulator.
A large number of PUBG fans are unaware that Tencent Games has an official emulator that allows them to play the game on a PC or a laptop.
More importantly, since this is an officially launched emulator, there’s no way you could get banned.
However, it is worth noting that players playing the game using an emulator will be matched with other players that are using the official emulator as well.
