#GamingBytes: Why is PUBG Mobile popular than Fortnite in India?

PUBG Mobile had captured the Battle Royale market on mobile platforms long before Epic Games launched Fortnite for Android and iOS devices.

Despite the overwhelming popularity of Fortnite on most platforms including PC, PUBG still dominates the Indian mobile gaming circuits.

Here we take a look at the reasons which make PUBG Mobile more popular among Indian gamers than the mobile version of Fortnite.

Reason 1

PUBG Mobile enjoyed a first mover advantage

PUBG Mobile enjoys greater popularity than Fortnite due to its first mover advantage.

PUBG Mobile released on February 9, 2018, globally, while Fortnite only came to Android on August 9. The initial beta version followed by rolling-out to all devices also took time.

By then, PUBG had already established itself as the best Battle Royale game on mobile platforms and garnered a loyal following.

Reason 2

Realistic graphics make gameplay more intense and immersive

Fortnite has much more animated graphics and often tends to have cartoon-like characters in the game.

On the other hand, PUBG Mobile sticks to realistic graphics and characters. The added realism in visuals not only makes the Battle Royale experience more immersive but also more intense.

This is why Indian mobile gamers have opted for the more realistic Battle Royale than the comical one.

Reason 3

PUBG Mobile has more map variants than Fortnite

Different content is a sure-fire way of gaining Indian gamers' approval.

While PUBG Mobile has realized that and introduced various maps of varying sizes and terrains, Fortnite still sticks to one map, within which it keeps on introducing changes.

At present PUBG Mobile has a grassy map, a desert map, a forest map, and a snow map.

It makes gameplay interesting and intense.

Reason 4

Shooting mechanism and weapons are more realistic in PUBG Mobile

Out of all the Battle Royale games that are in existence at the moment, PUBG has the most realistic shooting mechanism.

This realism naturally found its way into the mobile version of the game, making gunfights highly engaging and interesting.

The weapon damage does not depend on rarity classifications like Fortnite (Legendary, Epic), making looting much simpler and smoother on mobile devices.

Reason 5

Building distracts gamers from the actual game in Fortnite

When gamers play a Battle Royale, they are more focused on looting and killing opponents in order to emerge victors.

Fortnite unnecessarily complicates this by introducing the building feature, where players can build various structures by collecting materials in-game, to allow them defensive or tactical advantages.

PUBG Mobile sticks to the basics of looting and killing making it more enjoyable on smaller mobile screens.
