Sigh. The times they are a-changin’. You never know what changes when and which face-off in which part of the world comes knocking on your doors. With India joining Iraq, Pakistan and Jordan in the list of countries who’ve banned PUBG, finding yourself alternatives to everything around you is the order of the day. And while you’re at it, here are Top 5 alternatives to PUBG that we should all get going with!
Call of Duty: Mobile
Quite an open secret that this game is the closest a game can get to rival PUBG. Both in terms of popularity and experience for the gamers. Comes complete with game modes, this game has close to 250 million downloads as of June this year. And counting. With a 100-player battle arena, person to person combat and a bunch of deadly weapons on offer, Call of Duty is video gaming finesse. Wait, just did a background check on the developers. All we can say is, try your hand at this game before it makes an exit too!
The USB of this game is its simplicity. Not that I’ve played PUBG aggressively myself, but from what we read online, the easy-to-navigate interface is what gives this game an edge over PUBG. The casual battle-royale game has 32 players and battles of 3.5 minutes each. No waiting, no complications, no mind-numbing strategizing. As the makers of the game put it, just play, parachute, loot, shoot and survive.
A battle-royale outing. Involves 100 players on a large island, but again reviewers claim that the visuals are somewhat cartoonish. What’s the harm in that though? It’s no small deal that Fortnite is one of the top favourites for gamers the world over. Once on the island, you find yourself with no means to arm yourself. And for survival, you’ve got to get all the weapons you can. And strategize well. Pretty good PUBG alternative. Sorry, Apple users.
Garena Free Fire
A battle royale game and developed by a Singapore-based company, this award-winning game is quite the thrill for gamers. You get to battle fellow gamers in battles, until it all comes dwindling down to the last man standing. Get your selection from a choice of weapons and get involved in all sorts of strategizing and winning over combatants.
Infinity Ops Sci-Fi
Create your own clans, navigate through terrific 3D graphics with the ease of the control offered in this game. A multiplayer game set in a sci-fi setting, the game unfolds against the background of a reality where humanity has surpassed all limits of technological development. Survive, regroup and win the battle, amidst utter chaos and warfare.
Does the list help you move on?
This quiz might too. Just saying.
