So Tencent is not only doing one but two games of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in China, both for Mobile. The first one, we’ve posted here and the game will be called PUBG: Army Assault . The second is what you check out in the trailer below and it will be called PUBG Thriling Battlefield.
The curious thing is that at the end of the trailer, there is the link of a website. However, this site only contains information from the PC version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and that’s where the confusion begins. On this site there is the download page of an application, a companion app of the PC version, called iPUBG, and many people thought this was the game. At this point, Tencent even removed the app that was on pubg.qq.com because of the confusion generated.
PUBG: Army Assault is being developed by Timi Studio while PUBG Thriling Battlefield is being developed by another team and another studio, Lightspeed & Quantum Studios. Both are being developed in Unreal Engine 4 and both in partnership with Bluehole, the producer of the original version for PC.
Officially, representatives of the Tencent games refuse to tell how this game is different from PUBG: Army Assault, just recognizing that both games are still under development and is not an appropriate time to discuss this issue. However, it was mentioned that one of the mobile games of PUB will be “original” while the other “official”. I know, it is getting confused, but Tencent Games promised that both titles will be “high quality” products created using Unreal Engine 4. It seems like Tencent is getting into a frenzy over PUBG!
