- PUBG Mobile has hit 1 billion downloads globally on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
- To mark the achievement, the battle royale game is gearing up to roll out a new update.
- PUBG Mobile is not available in India as it is banned under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act.
PUBG Mobile was released globally in March 2018. The game became an instant hit and has been steadily growing ever since. Tencent has been keeping fans engaged with a constant outflow of new content that includes modes, maps, and more.
Three years later, the game has crossed the billion mark in terms of downloads across Android and iOS. Tencent announced during the game’s third-anniversary party on YouTube today.
For the third-anniversary party, PUBG Mobile teamed up with popular DJs Alesso, Lost Frequencies, and R3HAB for a live performance. The three DJs debuted new singles in the performance. Alesso’s “Going Dumb,” Lost Frequencies’ “Rise,” and R3HAB’s “Stars Align” were revealed during the party today.
Players will be able to see clips of the DJs’ live performance on the spawn island and cheer park in PUBG Mobile. The three singles, along with K-pop group BLACKPINK’s remix version of “DDU-DU DDU-DU” will be also released into the game.
PUBG Mobile general manager Vincent Wang said:
“We want to thank our committed development team at Lightspeed and Quantum Studios and especially thank the devoted players around the world that continue to inspire us with their passion and dedication. We will continue to set the bar for mobile gaming and look to deliver even more great contents to our players later this year.”
However, do note that PUBG Mobile is not available in India as it is banned under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act. The game was banned in the country in September last year along with hundreds of other Chinese apps over cybersecurity concerns.
PUBG creator Krafton has been making efforts to bring back PUBG Mobile in India, though it is unclear as of now if the game will re-launch in the country soon.
