Want to play the popular PUBG mobile game on a computer? We’ll show you how.
Several days ago, Tencent, the developer behind the mobile version of the famous shooter game, released an official PUBG Mobile emulator.
In case the small screen of your smartphone is preventing you from fully enjoying the game, there’s actually a quick and easy way to play PUBG Mobile on a laptop or computer. This is also helpful if your desktop PC doesn’t have enough computing power to run the full-fledged PC version (or you don’t want to pay for it) of PlayUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
Whatever the case may be, we’ll walk you through the process of downloading, installing, and playing PUBG Mobile on PC.
Play PUBG Mobile using an emulator on PC
Step 1: Go to this URL to download the official Tencent PUBG Mobile emulator — http://syzs.qq.com/en/
Step 2: Click the huge download button to get the 8.4MB installer.
Step 3: You will be given an option to immediately install it or customize the location of the software.
Step 4: After running the installer, it will download the engine of the game.
Step 5: Next is the Tencent Gaming Buddy software.
Step 6: Afterward, the download of the actual PUBG Mobile game will commence. There’s no file size indicated, but I feel like it’s pretty huge because it took some time before my 1MB/s internet finished downloading it.
Step 7: Once it finishes, you’ll be greeted with the same opening screen as the original PUBG Mobile game for Android and iOS.
Step 8: Sign-in or create an account to start playing the game. For those who don’t want a lengthy process, Tencent also provided a way to sign-in using your Facebook account.
That’s it! You can now enjoy playing PUBG Mobile on your computer or laptop. With the help of a mouse and keyboard, the game will become more enjoyable.
But if you think that you’re going to get an advantage against smartphone gamers, you’re wrong. Tencent actually has an algorithm that checks which players use an emulator, so they’re matched up against each other to prevent having the unfair advantage of a more robust control pad.
