PUBG Mobile enjoyed a first mover advantage
PUBG Mobile enjoys greater popularity than Fortnite due to its first mover advantage.
PUBG Mobile released on February 9, 2018, globally, while Fortnite only came to Android on August 9. The initial beta version followed by rolling-out to all devices also took time.
By then, PUBG had already established itself as the best Battle Royale game on mobile platforms and garnered a loyal following.
PUBG Mobile has more map variants than Fortnite
Different content is a sure-fire way of gaining Indian gamers’ approval.
While PUBG Mobile has realized that and introduced various maps of varying sizes and terrains, Fortnite still sticks to one map, within which it keeps on introducing changes.
At present PUBG Mobile has a grassy map, a desert map, a forest map, and a snow map.
It makes gameplay interesting and intense.
Shooting mechanism and weapons are more realistic in PUBG Mobile
Out of all the Battle Royale games that are in existence at the moment, PUBG has the most realistic shooting mechanism.
This realism naturally found its way into the mobile version of the game, making gunfights highly engaging and interesting.
The weapon damage does not depend on rarity classifications like Fortnite (Legendary, Epic), it has real guns like Kar98K, M416, M16A4, etc.
THESE MAY BE SOME REASONS WHY PUBG MOBILE IS MORE FAMOUS THAN FORTNITE IN INDIA.
