PUBG/Battlegrounds Mobile India: Here Are Some of the Best Alternatives You Need To Check Out

Battlegrounds Mobile India will make its grand entry into the gaming scene very shortly. The anticipation for this game is fairly high given that this is the Indian version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mobile, also known as PUBG Mobile. PUBG was banned in India around a year ago amidst border tensions with neighbouring China. 

As we wait for the refreshed version of PUBG for India, now is a good time to check out some games similar to Battlegrounds Mobile India that offer a sweet battle royale experience.

Call of Duty: Mobile

This game received a big boost following the demise of PUBG in India thanks to its stellar graphics and gameplay. Developed by Activision, Call of Duty: Mobile has multiple game modes in addition to battle royale, making it a fun multiplayer game overall. 

Call of Duty: Mobile is available on both Android and iOS platforms, so you can enjoy it with your buddies regardless of the smartphone they use. We also like the fact that the game is constantly updated with new features, weapons, and other aspects, putting it among the best battle-royale shooters out there.

Garena Free Fire

Yet another popular battle royale game with millions of users, Garena Free Fire offers the best of PUBG, but with some minor tweaks and changes. 50 players are pitted against each other with only one surviving in the end. 

Although the game has received widespread acclaim from fans and gamers, many have complained about the game’s ability to drain you of your money if you get hooked to it. So be wary of that before trying out this game.

Battlelands Royale  

This is a fun take on the gun-based battle royale format, though it uses a non-conventional approach. The result is a 32-player game that offers a ton of excitement, coupled with the ability to create custom battles to take on your friends. 

Players who are accustomed to titles like Call of Duty: Mobile and Garena Free Fire will find Battlelands Royale to be slightly different in terms of gameplay action. This is mostly because the game utilizes an aerial format, and not a first person or third person format like most battle royale games. Check out this game if you’re looking for a multiplayer gameplay experience with a twist.

Fortnite is rated among the best battle royale games in the world today, although its reach is somewhat limited as it doesn’t offer an Apple (iOS) app following a dispute with the company. Android users can’t download it from the Google Play Store either but users can download it directly from the Epic Games website in the form of an apk download. 

While Fortnite doesn’t particularly appeal to everyone due to its limited availability, it’s still an option worth considering given the smooth gameplay. There are multiple playing modes on offer, though not as much as we find on Call of Duty: Mobile.

The game that was launched in response to the ban on PUBG has come a long way since its launch, though players say it still has room for improvement. A big distinction here is that this isn’t a multiplayer game, which leaves out a lot of fun from the experience. 

However, it’s decent enough for an indigenously developed free game, and also taps into the sense of national pride for most Indians. If you haven’t downloaded FAU-G already, be sure to give it a try.
