Knowing very well, the Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) made a name for itself last year. It was launched on Windows, but got a mobile version earlier this year for both Android and iOS.
Users like Tunechi on our group is eager to play the mobile version on PC by the help of emulator all in the name of allowing the use of mouse and keyboard something that gave these PC users better controls than users who played the mobile game on their smartphones.
The good news is that with the help of Tencent’s official Android emulator, PC users can now play PUBG Mobile for Android on PC via windows.
Guide on how to Download, Install & Play
To play the mobile version on PC, users are expected to download the official Gaming Buddy emulator, which has been developed by Tencent Games, to start playing PUBG Mobile on your Windows PC.
The installation package is 8.4MB in size, though the game takes a few minutes to download the engine and install its presence on the machine. It is also worth noting here that you may observe some lag while playing the game as the Android game is still in its beta version.
Once installed, the PUBG Mobile emulator offers the gaming experience at a frame rate of 60fps. You can switch between HD, Full-HD, and Ultra-HD resolutions, depending on the display of your system. Pro users can tweak the engine’s performance by selecting appropriate memory, processor, and DPI settings.
Furthermore, there are options to choose between Auto, Smooth, Balanced, and HD display quality. You can also record your gameplay right from the emulator.
The controls on the emulator are similar to any native PC games; you need to click the mouse to attack the opponents or move the pointer to rotate the character. There are also on-screen buttons that match the original Android version. Additionally, there is a fullscreen mode to give you enough room to find and kill other players on your journey.
In our initial testing on a Windows convertible, we found that unlike its original Android version, the PUBG Mobile emulator doesn’t support touchscreen displays, though the experience was decent when played using a mouse and keyboard.
