Tencent announced that PUGB Mobile has broken through another milestone, with a total of 1 billion downloads worldwide. Although this number does not include mainland China, it is still an important presence for games that are already large enough.
Since its release in 2018, PUGB Mobile has been considered one of the most popular games on the planet. In 2019, it surpassed the mark of the highest-paid mobile game.
After the news broke, Tencent also announced a partnership with Godzilla vs. King Kong. Players will be able to participate in in-game activities and upcoming movies, including game modes and themed content. Tencent will also open the classic map Karakin to mobile players on April 7.
Developers will continue to support mobile games with updates including maps. Earlier this year, Tencent announced a new mobile phone entry for the series, namely PUBG: New State. The game is expected to be released on Android and iOS later this year.
