4 PUBG Mobile Alternatives That Aren’t Chinese | Games Like PUBG In 2020


PUBG Mobile is an immensely popular game with millions of players worldwide. However, recently, the Indian Government decided to ban the free battle royale game because of its Chinese connection. In India, #PUBGBAN was trending as several people wanted the government to ban the game like the other 59 Chinese apps, and it looks like their prayers are answered. That’s why, Indian mobile gaming community now have no other choice but to look for PUBG Mobile non-Chinese alternatives.

If you’re one of those players who are looking for some non-Chinese alternatives of PUBG Mobile, then you’re in luck. In this article, we’ve mentioned some PUBG Mobile alternatives for both Android and iOS.

PUBG Mobile Alternatives

1. Garena Free Fire

Garena Free Fire is a free-to-play battle royale game for Android and iOS. Garena, a company based in Singapore, published Free Fire and Vietnam-based 111dots studio lead the development of the game.

Free Fire’s game mechanics are very much similar to PUBG Mobile. However, instead of 100 players, Garena Free Fire consists of 50 players fighting each other for survival.

PUBG Mobile players may hate Free Fire for its average graphics, but no one can deny that the game has a huge player base. For instance, Garena Free Fire was the most downloaded mobile game of 2019. Also, the reason behind Free Fire’s insufficient graphics quality is that the game is optimized to run smoothly on low-end smartphones.

Nevertheless, for players obsessed with amazing graphics, Garena is working on an enhanced version of Free Fire, which will be called Free Fire Max.

Platforms: Android and iOS

2. Call Of Duty: Mobile

If you play PUBG Mobile, then you must know about Call of Duty: Mobile. That’s because Call of Duty Mobile is the only battle royale game that stands strong against PUBG Mobile.

Like PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile is also developed by a subsidiary of Tencent Games, TiMi Studios. However, the game is published under the banner of Activision, a company based in America. In short, despite the fact Activision pays a small portion of revenue to Tencent for the development, the game is fully owned by Activision.

The fact that distinguishes COD Mobile from PUBG Mobile is its fast-paced gameplay. There are two modes in Call of Duty Mobile – Battle Royale and Multiplayer. In battle royale mode, 100 players go against each other to be the last one standing. Also, each player in the battle royale game has to choose an operator class, which makes the game even more exciting.

On the other hand, Call of Duty Mobile Multiplayer mode puts you in a 5v5 situation with amazing weapons and militaristic operator skills.

Platforms: Android and iOS

3. Battlelands Royale

Battlelands Royale is a 32-player battle royale game developed by Finnish developer, Futureplay. When compared to games like PUBG and Call of Duty Mobile, Battlelands Royale looks completely different. The graphics make everything in the game look cute, but that doesn’t mean the game doesn’t get competitive.

32 players drop together and make use of all the available resources to kill every other player on the map. There are different game modes in Battlelands Royale to provide you with more variety.

The only bad thing about Battlelands Royale is that it doesn’t have a voice chat feature, which makes it impossible for players to communicate with each other.

Nevertheless, it is a great game and the developers are working hard to make the game even better. So, if you plan to shift from PUBG Mobile, then Battlelands Royale is worth trying out.

Platforms: Android, iOS, Windows

4. Fortnite

Fortnite-PUBG mobile Alternatives

Fortnite is developed and published by Epic Games, an American company. It is one of the biggest competitors of PUBG for PC and consoles. On the other hand, the mobile version of Fortnite is far behind from COD Mobile and PUBG Mobile in terms of the player base. However, it is definitely a great game, and if you’re not into other PUBG Mobile alternatives we’ve mentioned above, then maybe you can try out Fortnite.

It doesn’t matter how much you hate Fortnite for its cartoonish graphics, you’d have to agree that it is a well-executed game that is loved by millions of players around the world.

In Fortnite Battle Royale, 100 players drop from an airbus empty-handed. After landing on the island, players have to utilize the resources and weapons they find to eliminate all the other players.

Unfortunately, when it comes to Fortnite for Android and iOS, players without a controller would sometimes find themselves at a disadvantage. Despite that, Fortnite is an amazing game that is worth trying out if you’re leaving PUBG Mobile.

Also, you should know that Tencent has 40% stake in Epic Games, but we can’t really call Fortnite a Chinese app because of that, can we?

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Mac, Windows, Nintendo, Android, iOS

So, these are the best non-Chinese PUBG Mobile alternatives. We hope that one of these games can fill the void in your heart after losing PUBG Mobile. Is there any other game that is worthy of being on this list? If yes, then do let us know in the comments.
