Well, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has come out on mobile. This isn't a clone, this isn't a riff on the battleroyale mechanics of the game, it's the official mobile port by Tencent. But there's a little bit of a hitch.

Because right now the game is only out in China. And as you might be able to imagine, that means that the version of the game you might be able to find a way to download, is all going to be in Chinese.

That's certainly what James over at AppSpy video found out when he went hands-on with the battle-to-the-death, hide-in-a-barn shooter. You can check out his video below to get an idea of what to expect when PUBG comes out for mobile in the west.

Although it's not set in stone that that's going to happen. Tencent is publishing the game in China, but whether or not this official mobile port is ever going to get translated for an English-speaking market has never been confirmed.

Of course, there are plenty of other PUBG clones you can play on the App Store. Some of them are even developed by Tencent, although they're likely to have the same translation issues that make this one a little on the confusing side.

PUBG is the big seller in the gaming world right now, so it's hardly a surprise to see it coming to mobile. Is it actually any good though? Well, it's got the usual problems that shooters have on touchscreen, as you can see in the video above.

It might have controller support, but it's a bit hard to tell when you can't read any of the menus. But if you're looking for your PUBG fix on the go, it's probably going to be worth checking out.

We will, of course, keep you updated as and when we find out anything more about the game coming out in the US and Europe. In the meantime though, feel free to have your say about what you think about PUBG coming to mobile in the comments below.
