What is PUBG MOBILE?

PlayerUnknown's Battleground (PUBG) is the mobile edition of the popular battle royale person versus person (PVP) console and PC multiplayer strategic action game. Offering a full experience, the PUBG Mobile offers all of the options console and PC players are used to, but in an on-the-go format.

 

The PUBG Mobile app is rated for players ages 17 years of age and older, is free to play, but does feature in-app purchases.  This app can be found in both the App Store and the Google Play Store.

 

PUBG Mobile is a kill or be killed game, with the goal of being the last man standing. A player versus player game, allowing up to one hundred players, PUBG pits live players against each other in a nail-biting game of strategy similar to the Hunger Games concept.

 

In PUBG players are dropped into the war zone with nothing and must search for resources and weapons as well as build protective forts and ramps.

 

PUBG is an all-out battle royale, where players will enjoy pitting their resources and strategic strengths against other players in the live action game.

 

PUBG's game currency comes in the form of Unknown Cash, which can be purchased in packages ranging in price from $1.39 to $139.99.

 

Many of the in-app purchases are for what are known as "loot crates" which contain helpful resources for players, as well as sought-after articles of clothing. Because players are dropped into the PUBG Mobile world in just their skivvies, they must scavenge clothing they find along the way or remove off of fallen players unless they purchase articles of clothing.

 

And while players earn points or currency through playing, many players will be drawn to customizing their character which is where the draw to make in-app purchases comes into play.

Is PUBG MOBILE safe for my kids?

Parents familiar with the popular Fortnite game will already know what PlayerUnknown's Battleground is all about.

What they may not know, however, is that Fortnite is actually a copycat version of PUBG. Developers just beat them to releases a mobile edition.

Since Fortnite's minimum age is younger, parents should be aware that PUBG Mobile terms of use require players to be 17 years of age or older to download the app without adult consent.

Is PUBG safe for kids to play? Parents need to know that the sole objective of the PUBG Mobile app is to be the last man standing, which means players must kill one another to meet the objective.

Violence is the driving force behind the game, and weapons feature heavily. However, player deaths are not gory nor is blood displayed, players simply disappear in a green mist once they've been taken out of the game.

Parents should know that PUBG allows players to form teams, either by inviting friends or combining forces with other players on the platform.

While there are not text communication capacities for team members, they are able to communicate via voice chat, which is something parents will want to take into consideration, should they allow their child to play PUBG.

Parents should also discuss in-app purchase expectations prior to letting their child play, and then monitor purchases from there.

PUBG - Mobile is safe for older kids.
