It's an interesting move from Tencent to partner a movie like this. Considering that Fortnite did something similar with Avengers: Infinity War, it was only a matter of time before the PUBG Mobile team found a suitable fit for the game with Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
For what it's worth we felt that Mission: Impossible - Fallout is one of the more entertaining action flicks of the year. You can check out our review in addition to the best - and worst movies in the series right here.
Thanks to being on Android (as well as iOS), PUBG Mobile dominates Asia and China according to data agency SensorTower, with the US making up only 30 percent of PUBG’s revenue. This makes Fortnite’s loss as PUBG’s gain. Particularly in markets that have no access to PCs, consoles, or iOS devices out of cost concerns or personal preference such as Asia where Android rules supreme.
Aside from being on Android, PUBG Mobile is no slouch when it comes to bringing new features to the game, receiving updates aplenty ranging from visual improvements, the Royale Pass (PUBG Mobile’s equivalent of the Fortnite Battle Pass) and even seasonal events. Plus, it’s exceedingly well optimised — to the point where the game run brilliantly even on low-end smartphones. Fortnite on iOS, while serviceable, doesn’t run as smooth as it could on anything that’s not the latest hardware from Apple.
