PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is a popular Battle Royale Game initially developed by Bluehole Corporation for PCs. It was banned in China and several countries for being accused of promoting violence, blood, and gory additions. PUBG developers had never thought of creating a mobile version until this incident.

Tencent Holdings’ game division, Tencent Games, negotiated with Bluehole to become the distributor of PUBG in China after conducting necessary adjustments as required by the government guidelines. The company also proposed the development of the mobile version of the game to target a broader Chinese audience. There were two installments eventually distributed: the original PUBG Mobile that we all know, and the arcade-styled PUBG: Army Attack.

PUBG: Army Attack was developed by TiMi Studio, a subsidiary of Tencent Games, and later was renamed to PUBG Mobile Marching. The basic concept is retained: 100 players drop on an island where they loot, combat, and try to survive to the very end. However, new buildable elements such as stairs and shields, are what make it stands out from the original version.
