PUBG Mobile, a scaled-down version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds from The PUBG Corporation, has passed 100 million downloads on iOS and Android, fewer than 4 months since its debut on smartphones and tablets. PUBG Mobile competitor Fortnite hit 100 million downloads on iOS alone in late July

PUBG Mobile is a scaled-down version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds from The PUBG Corporation, however they will deliver even more great contents to the players later this year. When PUBG Mobile started, it did not include any in-game purchases, but its developers have since introduced cosmetic items that enable players to customize their characters. In June, spending on PUBG Mobile saw a 365-percent increase thanks to the launch of a premium progression pass that is popular in other battle royale shooters like Fortnite.

While Fortnite has won the popularity contest, developer Epic Games is taking a chance when it comes to the Android version of that competitor. Instead of launching through the Google Play store, Epic is debuting its own launcher that fans will have to download and install separately.
