In September 2020, Indian PUBG Mobile fans received shocking news as the government of India banned 118 Chinese apps including the famous PUBG Mobile. Since then, there were some rumors that the game would return with special Indian version.

But it has been 6 months and now it seems that the game would most likely face a permanent ban. So, here’s a list of games you could try as an alternative for PUBG Mobile.

  1. Call of Duty

Call of Duty is a free for all online battle royale game developed by TiMi studios and published by Activision for Android and ios. The game offers many modes similar to PUBG like multiplayer and team deathmatch.

Comparisons suggest that TDM Mode of COD is better than PUBG and the classic mode of PUBG is better than COD. Graphics wise one could prefer Call of Duty over PUBG. But overall COD is a must play game and if you’re looking for an alternative, this might be the best one.
