  1. Following the whole PUBG fiasco in India, Nepal has now banned the popular Battle Royale title. God, is this ever going to end? The move comes after the Nepal Metropolitan Crime Division filed a Public Interest Litigation with the Kathmandu District Court on Wednesday. Just a day after the filing, the Nepal Telecommunication Authority has called for all ISPs and mobile service providers to block its users from playing the game. © PUBG Corp. While speaking to the Kathmandu Post, the Metropolitan Crime Division chief Dhiraj Pratap Singh said, “We received a number of complaints from parents, schools and school associations regarding the effect of the game on children. What's more interesting is that Singh said the ban was inspired by the advice from psychiatrists, who apparently said the violence in the game was making people aggressive. “We also held discussions with psychiatrists before requesting the Kathmandu District Court for permission to ban the game,” Singh said. Officially, the ban comes into effect from Thursday, following which the people will not be allowed to play the game anymore. Nepal, however, isn't the only nation concerned with PUBG addiction. We all know how fierce the authorities were in India, right? People were literally getting arrested for playing the game in public. On the same lines, even China wanted to limit PUBG's play time. So, it's very clear that there's a lot of bad press around PUBG.
  2. While there are certainly plenty of 'rich people' who choose to spend money on expensive houses, sports cars, and luxury hotels, there are plenty of millionaires who choose not to spend all their money frivolously on eye-candy items. They have other plans like recreating a battle royale game in real life. That's right, an unnamed millionaire with deep pockets is planning to set up a real-life 100-person PUBG battle royale event on a private island. Ya right, talk about PUBG addiction. © YouTube According to an advertisement on HushHush, a luxury product marketplace dubbed the 'Amazon for millionaires', an anonymous rich guy is looking for a gamemaker who can help organize the three-day battle royale event. There's still a lot that we don't know about this competition, but we do know that it'll happen on a private island and the last person standing will walk away with £100,000. It'll apparently be a 12 hour competition during which the players will also get food and camping equipment. And don't worry, nobody's getting killed in the game because the players will be using airsoft gun instead of a real gun. Well, that's all the info that we have with us about this event right now. Hopefully, the richie rich will talk more about it as things begin to take shape. In the meantime, interested gamemakers who are willing to help making this a reality can apply for the position at the HushHush website, and the project pays around £45,000 for a six week contract. Yeah, this person is literally spending close to £150,000 (over Rs. 1 Cr) setting up this event, so let's see how it goes.
  3. PUBG Mobile is currently one of the most popular games in the country, with millions of active players, and a fair share of controversies. They all go hard when it comes to all the customization and in-game rewards, so Tencent has decided to launch new subscription packages with better rewards. With the latest PUBG Mobile update 0.11.5, the new Prime and Prime Plus subscription are now live in India. These new subscription packages will allow players to purchase Unknown Cash (UC), discounts, and also the option to buy items with Battle Points (BP). The option to buy these subscription packages should show up as soon as you start the game. Here are all the details - © PUBG Corp. Both PUBG Mobile Prime and Prime Plus subscription will get you particulars like UC and the option to buy items with BP. Of course, the rewards are going to be greater with the Prime Plus subscription over the regular Prime subscription. So, with Prime Plus subscription, you'll get the option to keep the items purchased with BP permanently, more UC, RP, etc. What's not included in the Prime subscription are daily free RP points, and other miscellaneous items like one-day advance room card, premium crate coupon, and more. So you'll essentially be shelling out more on the Prime Plus subscription for additional rewards. © PUBG Corp. The PUBG Mobile Prime and Prime Plus subscription package price for Android-based devices starts from Rs 85 per day. For Prime Plus, you'll have to pay Rs 400 per month and the amount goes up to Rs 850 after the first month. For iOS users, the monthly subscription is for Rs 79 and Rs 419 for Prime and Prime Plus respectively. The amount for Prime Plus goes up to Rs 799 after a month.
  4. Just when we thought the whole PUBG addiction fiasco has come to an end, we hear a new story about someone taking their own life. This time, it's an Indian teenager from Hyderabad who has committed suicide, after his mother allegedly scolded him for playing PUBG on his phone during the board exams. The 16-year-old boy named Kallakuri Samsbashiva, who was a class X student, hung himself from the ceiling fan of his room. Apparently, he latched his bedroom from the inside after being scolded by his mother for playing the game for too long instead of studying for his board exam. © PUBG Corp. As soon as the parents and the neighbors knocked down the door and found him hanging, they rushed him to the nearest hospital, where he was declared dead upon arrival. While speaking to Deccan Chronicle, sub-inspector K Sanjeeva Reddy said the boy has been playing the game for months, which led to his addiction. The news about the boy taking his life comes as a surprise, especially when just heard that the ban on the game has been lifted. It's high time that people start taking this more seriously and act responsibly. Or else it's only a matter of time until the game gets banned and people start getting arrested, again.
  5. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) has been in hot waters for a while now in India. From being banned to people getting arrested for playing it while the ban was in force, there has been a lot of chit-chat about the game. But now after a lot of criticism on social media, the ban imposed by the state of Gujarat on PUBG Mobile has finally been lifted. The decision came straight from the police commissioner A K Singh, after taking feedback from the public. © PUBG Corp. “Today is the last day of the proclamation we had issued. Yesterday, this matter came up for review and we decided that as the exam session is over and the direct trigger to initiating the action is not valid any more, we will not renew the proclamation. We have also taken public reaction into account, said the commissioner.' The game, in case you don't know, was banned for being violent and for inciting violence. It was also leading to accidental deaths, kids stealing money to buy in-game items, and more. Of course, banning the game wasn't an ideal solution, but that's apparently what the majority of people wanted. © PUBG Corp. Well, now that the ban has been lifted, let's not get carried away and spend all of our time playing it. It's high time that we, the players of the game, give it some thought and take some responsibility of our actions. Unless you are looking to dive in professionally, gaming is just a form of entertainment. Too much of it is not good for both your physical as well as mental health. As it turns out, you may even end up getting a game banned or end up in a jail for playing too much. So, let's focus on creating a healthy gaming environment, and enjoy ourselves while we are at it.
  6. PUBG Mobile is back in the news again. No one got arrested this time, but sadly two people lost their lives as they were run over by a train while playing the game near the railway tracks. Officials said that the incident happened at Khatkali Bypass in Hingoli, which is over 570 kilometres from Mumbai. The two men, Nagesh Gore and Swapnil Annapurne, were playing PUBG near the railway tracks. They got run over by the Hyderabad-Ajmer train. © PUBG Mobile The bodies of the two men were found late at night by the locals living in the vicinity. The officials have noted that an accidental death report has been registered at Hingoli police station. Also, this isn't the first negative report about PUBG Mobile this month. The game has been hitting the headlines since the beginning of the year for all the wrong reasons. Recently, the Rajkot police even arrested 10 people who were playing the game in public after the ban.
  7. Last week Rajkot police issued a notification to ban PUBG Mobile citing the game to be 'addictive' and harmful for youngsters. Well, if you thought that people would get away playing the game after the ban, then guess what? You were wrong. Within just five days, Rajkot police have arrested 10 youngsters for playing the battle royale game and violating the ban in different parts of the city like Junagadh, Nana Mava Road, Vaswani Road, Atmiya College Road and Jagannath Chowk areas. All these youngsters were aged between 19 and 25 years, and they were playing the game in a public place. © PUBG Mobile The accused were arrested and their mobile phones were seized. They were released on bail later. However, it does send out a stern message that the ban won't remain just on paper. While speaking to TOI, Police Inspector VS Vanzara of Rajkot taluka police station said, “All these students were arrested for violating the notification issued by police commissioner. They were released on bail later.” The ban notification, in case you're wondering, was issued on March 7 by the Rajkot police commissioner, and it's currently in effect in the city. Anyone caught playing the game would be liable to action under sections 144 and 37(3).
  8. When it comes to gaming and audio, most gamers tend to choose an over-the-head headset that delivers great surround sound. I use one myself. However, I find it extremely difficult to use one when playing on mobile or even my iPad. There are quite a few options out there that you can use but not many come in an earbud form. The HyperX Cloud Earbuds are one of those that wants to challenge its bigger brothers and has crafted earbuds for people who like to game on the go. These earbuds in our initial use provide balanced sound with a profile that makes it ideal for daily use. It comes with a case to store the earbuds so that you don't get them easily tangled and offers one of the best overall experience when it comes to portability. I've been using the earbuds particularly for playing PUBG mobile and even when playing single-player games on the PlayStation 4. It has a solid mic for communication with fellow teammates and can also be used for listening to music. The earbuds come with various fit options so that it can fit snug as a bug for every ear type. Design © HyperX In terms of design, the Cloud Earbuds have a very long wire, approximately four feet and has black rubberised earbuds.The tips are grey in colour, has triangular attachments and is translucent. The earbuds also have something along the lines of 'wings' that basically aides in keeping the earbuds in place within your ear. It's a very popular design that has been seen previously is music oriented earphones like the 1More Triple driver earphones; however, this is the first time we've seen something like this from HyperX. Apart from the basic design, the earbuds look fairy similar to other earbuds you may have seen before. You can however adjust the length of the words thanks to a plastic clip. There's even a button that can be used for various purposes such as making calls, play/pause music or even fire up Google Assistant. The beauty of these earbuds is that it can double up as a regular earphone as well. How Is It For Gaming? © YouTube Even though the HyperX earbuds look fairly simple and regular, the earbuds are compatible with any device that has a 3.5mm headphone jack. Having said that, regular earphones often have the bass boosted or has muddled sound which is not the case with these earbuds. It provides the best sound balance possible with more emphasis on sound effects. When playing PUBG mobile, I could clearly hear my enemy's footsteps that gave me the extra edge. © HyperX The HyperX earbuds can also be used for gaming on consoles such as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While playing Apex Legends and Red Dead Redemption 2, the sounds were crisp, clear and full of substance. The microphone was also great to use on the PlayStation 4 as friends in my party could hear me clearly without any muffled sounds. Having a goof microphone is essential for online gaming and the HyperX Cloud earbuds have nailed it in this department. Music As we mentioned before, these earbuds puts more emphasis on sound effects and when it comes to music, that statement remains true. We listened to some Weeknd, Drake and George Fitzgerald where the sound was not up to the mark as compared to other earphones. It puts vocals at the front and centre which is alright if you listen to a lot of pop music. However, I would not listen to bass heavy tracks on these earbuds if I were you. The Final Say For Rs 5,990, the HyperX Cloud Earbuds is the perfect investment for mobile gamers. If you want that extra edge when playing PUBG mobile or any other competitive game on your phone, you shouldn't look any further. While it is primarily meant for mobile gaming, you can even use it for single-player games on consoles.
  9. Tencent is probably not happy about the state of PUBG Mobile in India, as the game has found itself in the news for all the wrong reasons. The negative stories around the game have been pilling up and it doesn't seem to be getting better as a new story has showed up online. © PUBG According to a new report, a 15-year-old boy in Jalandhar has apparently stolen Rs 50,000 from his father's account to spend on PUBG Mobile. The teenager, who's a student of class 10th, used the money to buy himself a gamepad to play the title. As for the rest of the money, he is said to have spent it on the game's cosmetic items like skins, weapons, etc. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The matter was brought to light when the father filed a complaint with the local police. As it turns out, the boy used his father's account to transfer money to his friend's Paytm account, which was later used to buy the items online. The boy has since confessed on the matter and even revealed that he had deleted all the OTPs and transaction texts to keep his father in the dark. The cyber cell ended up launching an investigation, but the father dropped all the charges after discovering that his son was behind the whole fiasco. No wonder PUBG Mobile has been receiving a lot of flak lately. It's incidents like these that puts the game in a weird spot. In case you don't know, the game was recently banned by the Rajkot Police, and the authorities might take the necessary actions against the players found playing it in the banned region.

  10. If you have been following the news around PUBG, then you are probably aware of the fact that it's been receiving a lot of flak for being highly addictive. Earlier this year, the Gujarat government banned school kids from playing PUBG, and now, it looks like the Surat district administration has imposed a ban on PUBG Mobile because of the increase in violent behaviour among the children. According to the administration, the game was affecting the academic performance of the students The circular to ban the game has reportedly been sent to a number of primary education officers of the district. The primary objective is to reduce the number of cases coming from PUBG Mobile addiction. As per the notice, the ban will be imposed in Rajkot from March 9 to April 30. Anyone can file a complaint and inform the nearest police station against whoever is playing the game. The police is said to take action under the Central Government Act Section 188. © Tencent Mobile Jagruti Pandya, Chairperson of Gujarat Child rights body, has also issued a recommendation to the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) in order to ban PUBG Mobile in the state. Jagruti was quoted saying, "The NCPCR had sent a letter to all the states and recommended a ban on the game. All the states are required to implement it. Looking at the negative effects of the game, we had recently sent a letter to the state government recommending a ban on the game." Source: Timesnownews
  11. Tencent Games recently pushed an update for PUBG Mobile, which introduced zombies in the game as a part of their limited time event. It's a result of a collaboration between 'Resident Evil 2' and Tencent, and it's quite intense. You might want to check out some tips and tricks to survive the zombie attack. If the YouTube creator MrGhost Gaming is to be believed, then it looks like we'll be getting a new zombie mode where the players themselves might get to become zombies. © PUBG Corporation Yes, you read that right. PUBG Mobile could soon be getting an update following which you'll be able to play as a zombie and hunt down other normal players. There's no official word from PUBG Corp. or Tencent as of now, but the mode is being speculated to arrive with the next update. © PUBG Corporation In one of his recent video, MrGhost Gaming claims that PUBG Mobile published a Facebook post last month collecting feedback and new ideas for the zombie mode. The post seems to have been deleted now as we couldn't find it on PUBG Mobile's official page, but the video does suggest that the developers were onto something similar. © PUBG mobile/MrGhostGaming As a zombie, you won't be able to pick up any weapons or other items, and you'll be dealing with the human opponents using only melee attacks. It's also being speculated that this new mode might be made available in custom rooms, so you can play with your friends. It is said to arrive with the version 0.13 or the 0.14 of the game, so keep your eyes peeled for the same.
  12. PUBG Mobile is undoubtedly one of the most popular titles which you can play on both Android and iOS devices. Millions of players are showing up on PUBG's servers to play the game on a daily basis. Despite the staggering success, the game's developer and publisher Tencent Games is currently dealing with a lot of criticism, thanks to the reports which claim that the game is highly addictive and is affecting the mental health of the players. © Tencent Mobile Following the serious backlash, Tencent Games has now decided to impose a digital lock that will lock out players under the age of 13. Tencent Games is said to have imposed the restriction to support the Chinese government's crackdown on gaming addiction, and players below 13 years of age will need a parent or guardian's permission to play. Tencent is said to be using technologies like facial recognition and player ID checks to ascertain the age and identities of the players. They are using similar technology to ban players in 'Honour of Kings', which is yet another popular Tencent Games title. In addition to the digital lock, Tencent has already imposed limits on how long players can play the game, streaming restriction, and more. © PUBG Corporation As of now, only the Chinese version of the game seems to have the digital lock. The ban has been imposed in 12 Chinese cities including Beijing, Chengdu, and Changchun. But considering how Indian parents have been complaining about the game's addictive nature, we think it's only a matter of time until we see a similar digital lock being imposed on the Indian version of the game as well. In a statement released following the backlash, Tencent said, "To foster a healthy and balanced in-game environment, we are developing numerous new features and enhancements which enables us to provide an environment for players to enjoy PUBG Mobile in a rewarding and responsible manner. We are honoured to have a passionate community of PUBG Mobile players in India and globally and continue to welcome their feedback to make PUBG Mobile the best game ever!" Source: Xinhuanet
  13. Steam is home to a lot of popular games as we know them. Thousands of games are added to Steam's library every year, but as always, a few titles are more popular than the others. 'PUBG' is definitely on the top when it comes to popularity as it took the gaming industry by storm when it arrived. 'PUBG' dominated Steam's player count chart for a long time by surpassing the likes of 'DOTA 2', 'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive', and more. But is 'PUBG' still the most popular title on steam? Not really. It's 'DOTA 2' that is currently dominating the charts. A cool new data visualization, which shows the top Steam games by player count since 2015, says that DOTA 2 hasn't lost its appeal to the fleet of Battle Royale making its way to the library. © OpenAI The animated chart, which was posted to Reddit by “TheKarmaFiend”, shows the lasting appeal of 'DOTA 2' over the years. The animation's timeline begins on January 1, 2015, and ends on December 31, 2018. DOTA 2 retained its top spot for most of the time before PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds took over by August 2017. © PUBG PUBG's arrival pushed 'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive' to the third spot until which it was locking-horns with 'DOTA 2' for the top spot. If you look closely, some other titles like 'Team Fortress 2', 'GTA V' and 'Warframe' also remained popular throughout the timeline. Sadly, the titles like 'No Man's Sky', 'XCOM 2', etc. couldn't manage to hold their position in the chart for a long time. You would literally miss them with a blink of an eye. Interestingly, 'DOTA 2' player numbers have started increasing towards the end of 2018. In fact, currently the MOBA title is back in the number one spot with close to 1 million players peak today. 'PUBG' is right next to it with close to 800,000 players peak, whereas 'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive' is on the third spot. Source: Reddit
  14. At the beginning of this month, Apex Legends was announced, a Battle Royale game that is free-to-play just like PUBG and Fortnite. The game is developed by Respawn and Electronic Arts and is available for download on PS4, Xbox One, and Origin for PC. © KnowTechie Last week, Respawn revealed that the game has hit 25 million total players and had "well over" 2 million concurrent players during the weekend. If we compare, Fortnite took four months to achieve the same numbers and the game currently has 200 million players. Today, the developer has revealed that it has already banned more than 16,000 accounts for cheating. The company also asked users to capture proof of cheaters, such as a screenshot or video clip and send it to them. Even if the proof isn't available, they are urging players to report the cheaters' ID and it shall be taken up for investigation. © Respawn The game currently lacks an in-game reporting tool and the developer has acknowledged that it's a "good idea". Though, there isn't a timeline on when the feature will be rolled out. Given the massive popularity of the game, we expect the reporting system to drop soon since a manual complain filing is bothersome for players as well as the company. A cheater who goes by the name of Mengiez on Twitch was caught cheating in his own broadcast. Viewers noticed that he's asking a wall hack to keep an eye on his opponent's location. Another Twitch streamer going by the name Dharyxd was caught using an aimbot. The videos have since been deleted, but the cheating cost them their accounts. © Respawn The game will have a second patch this week, but we don't know what to expect with the upcoming Apex Legends patch. So far, Respawn has been doing pretty well with their response to player concerns. Many players have been complaining that PUBG has a huge issue with hackers and the developers aren't doing enough to curb it. Using hacks to score points ruins the fun of the game because no player should have an undue advantage. In December, PUBG received a new anti-cheating tool called BattlEye, and it helped in 30,000 cheating accounts.
  15. We've already heard a few stories about banning the insanely popular game PUBG. Last week, the Gujarat government forwarded a circular banning the game from educational institutions. The state's primary education department had issued a circular that directed primary schools to ensure that a ban has been implemented on PUBG. Now, 11-year-old Ahad has written to the Maharashtra Government to ban the game. In the letter, he said, "it promotes immoral conduct such as violence, murder, aggression, looting, gaming addiction and cyberbullying". The boy further wrote in the letter, "I will be compelled to seek appropriate legal [civil and criminal] proceeding as per law; naturally at your cost and consequences" if the game is not banned." The letter was sent to seven ministers, including Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Ravi Shankar Prasad (Ministry of Electronics and IT), and Vinod Tawde (Maharashtra Education Minister). When Ahad didn't receive a response from the public officials, he then decided to file a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Bombay High Court. © YouTube The Jammu and Kashmir Students Association has also asked the Governor of the state to ban the game immediately due to poor board exam results. PUBG Mobile has been very popular since launch and people are literally hooked onto it. There have also been cases when people got addicted to the game and turned to physical self-harm. We must keep in mind that these games are built for entertainment and not supposed to be taken so seriously. A recent report by the Quartz states that a PUBG fan spends more than 8 hours in a week on an average on the game. © YouTube More than 120 cases of PUBG addiction were registered at Services for Healthy Use of Technology (SHUT) clinic in National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS). Signs of addiction include deprivation of sleep, loss of real-life interests, drop in lecture attendance, and poor academic performances. While the game is fun to play, a major reason for the fan following is the fad around it. One reason why many Indians are playing the game is that “everyone's talking about it.” Source: India Today
  16. India is a country that loves "bans". We'll ban anything and everything simply because a few people are offended or actually don't even understand the issue. The latest ban trend has been about the infamous battle royale game PUBG. The game has been a raging success in the country and everyone is hooked onto it. Users are spending hours every day playing the game and thanks to its well built in-app communication, playing with friends is even more fun. Owing to the craze, children and teenagers are glued to the game and often tend to ignore studies. © PUBG Corporation Gujarat is now officially the first state in India where the popular mobile game PUBG has been banned from primary schools. The state's primary education department has issued a circular that directs primary schools to ensure that a ban has been implemented on PUBG. The circular directed District Primary Education Officers to take the necessary steps to enforce a ban on the game in primary schools. It said the ban was necessary as children were getting addicted to the game and it was “adversely affecting their studies”. © PUBG Corporation Jagruti Pandya, who is the chairperson of the Gujarat child rights body, has also said that the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has also issued a recommendation to ban PUBG in the entire state. This comes after a recent report by Quartz and Jana which states that a PUBG fan spends 8 or more hours in a week on an average in India. One reason why many Indians are playing the game is that “everyone's talking about it.” © iMore Gujarat Government isn't the first one to ban PUBG though, institutes like Vellore Institute of Technology have also banned the game in their campus. A few days ago, a fitness trainer had to be admitted to a hospital because he was addicted to PUBG. The fitness trainer got addicted to the game and played it for nearly 10 days in a row. He had to be hospitalized after he started hitting himself with blows and caused significant injury. Virtual games are supposed to give a temporary escape from the mundane routine and are a source of entertainment. They in no way should be taken seriously, and are definitely not worth investing in by ignoring other important aspects like studies and work. (With inputs from PTI)
  17. India's top smartphone maker Xiaomi has launched PUBG-like Survival Game. The game is based on the battle royale genre and seems to have taken a lot of inspiration from Tencent's PUBG and Epic Games' Fornite. One thing that gives it an edge is its installation size, coming in at just 185MB. Just like all other Battle Royale games out there, gamers have to stay alive while killing as many opponents as possible. The last player standing wins. Just like PUBG, you parachute down and choose your landing spot. A unique addition in Survival Game, that adds a little more variety to Battle Royale, is jetpacks. The company says that such flight equipment will help players in tactical gaming. © YouTube The new game is considered to be developed by Xiaomi only and it is basically based on a large scale, sci-fi 3D shooting category and it is believed to be built keeping Indian players in mind. "Each match starts with players parachuting from the spaceship onto a map area. Players could decide when and where to land on the battlefield. All resources are searched and retrieved from the map, and players can fight with their competitors at any time. The last one standing will be the winner,” the company explains in the game description. © Xiaomi While the features and additions are good on paper, the graphics are nothing when compared to the competition. With the game, Xiaomi wants to bring the Battle Royale experience to budget phones, a segment that it currently leads in terms of market share. With the game, it wants to bring the users a similar experience of a high-end phone. The Battle Royale genre has picked up massively in a very short time period, and the trend isn't going anywhere soon. Xiaomi has been pretty silent about the game and its future right now, but if they're serious about taking on the might of PUBG, a lot of improvement and fixes need to be pushed. © Xiaomi Earlier, the game was announced for beta testing, but now the company has come with the stable version of the game. For now, the game is available only on the Mi Apps store. To play the game you need a Xiaomi phone, simply head over to the store and search for the game.
  18. Now that Season 4 on PUBG mobile is coming to an end in two days, the Battle Royale game is all set to bring new content for the upcoming season. © MensXP Tencent Gaming, the company behind the mobile version of PUBG is yet to release the official patch noted, however, information about the new season has been leaked. The new update is expected very soon and here's everything you need to know about PUBG Mobile Season 5: 1. Fire Theme Leaked stuff for season 5 with background leaks from Reddit credit to @minisideman pic.twitter.com/o9voaWBwPE — PubgmCommunity (@PubgmCommunity) January 10, 2019 Images for the content that will be used in Season 5 have been leaked, even though it is yet to be made official. Some images of cosmetics, weapon skins and unlockable items have been leaked. One of the images shows a burning forest, which indicates that the game may follow a theme of fire. Now that the winter and snow theme has been used in the previous update, this speculation sounds quite plausible. 2. New Outfits Also clothing that most likely will be coming along with season 5 pic.twitter.com/OwvN3R5yvA — PubgmCommunity (@PubgmCommunity) January 10, 2019 One of the more prominent leaks surrounding PUBG Mobile Season 5 has to do with some exciting outfits.

  20. There have been numerous games that have proven to be extremely addictive. CS: GO and Dota were known to be among the most addictive multiplayer games out there and the gaming craze has now made its way to mobile phones. Mobile phones themselves have a record of being very addictive, whether it's for social networking or just killing time, these portable gadgets are a core part of our lives today. Since the launch of PUBG on Android and iOS, users have been known to get exceedingly attached to the game. Playing a multiplayer game with your friends takes this a level further. Addictions come from a lot of things and substance abuse has been leading the charts for centuries. Today, we have become victim to portable games like PUBG and Fornite. © Android Authority PUBG Mobile has been bringing out constant features and updates which can lead to anyone getting addicted to the game. New additions to the game include maps, guns, and even challenges. In an attempt to prove supremacy, we often forget that games are built to relieve stress, not add more. In a disturbing new development, a fitness trainer from Jammu has reportedly lost his mental balance after playing the game for 10 days. According to The Indian Express, the fitness trainer got addicted to the game and played it for nearly 10 days in a row. He had to be hospitalized after he started hitting himself with blows and caused significant injury. © BlueStacks "The patient is unstable at the moment and has partially lost his mental balance," a doctor (neurologist) treating him said in anonymity. The doctor further added that even though he was recognizing people, his mind was not very conscious and still under the influence of the game. The hospital sources claimed that it was the sixth similar case to be reported in the city. Doctors have appealed to the public to keep a close watch on children who are playing the game very intensively. There have been signs that those who are playing the game so intensively are often left ignored and not understood by their loved ones. © PUBG Corporation Jammu locals have appealed to the Jammu and Kashmir Governor, Satya Pal Malik to ban such “life-threatening” games in the state and the country as well. We all want to grab that Chicken Dinner but shouldn't forget that these are simply minor virtual pleasures of life and not worth being taken so seriously. Source: The Indian Express

  22. Battle Royale games have been dominating the charts on every platform be it PC, Console and even Mobile, which has led to many other games using the same formula. The wildly popular 'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' (also known as PUBG) and 'Fortnite' have created a genre of games that people can't get enough of. The Battle Royale format of games has taken inspiration from a Minecraft MOD that has now become the norm for standalone games like PUBG. 'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' is not everyone's cup of tea and sometimes, people need a lot more from a game that can put forth a difficult challenge. Sometimes, people need a game with its own unique spin that can make the gameplay a bit more exciting. So, if you are wondering what other Battle-Royale games you can play for free, you can take some suggestions from our list below: 1. H1ZI © H1Z1 H1Z1 is currently available for free on PC and PlayStation where you compete with 150 other players on a 60-plus square mile map. You can decide where to land based on how hectic a landing zone is, as the map glows where there's already gunfight taking place. It has a similar concept as PUBG where you need to scour for supplies, weapons and equipment. You can even jump in a car and start circling the safe zone to get your kills. 2. Fortnite © Epic Games It is by far the most successful Battle Royale game out there that has amassed over 200 million players. The game is free to play on PC, Consoles, iOS and Android making it the most accessible game out there. 'Fortnite' has its own unique spin to the Battle Royale formula where players need hunt for supplies, weapons and make makeshift defence shelters. You can play solo, duos or squads of up to four players with different game modes that suit different play styles. 'Fortnite' reportedly earned $3 billion last year and isn't going to slow down anytime soon. 3. Free Fire - Battlegrounds © Free Fire It is by far the closest game to PUBG Mobile where players have to follow the same concept of gathering supplies and killing enemy players. The only difference here is that the game is much more fast-paced, as there are only 50 players in a single match and takes place on a remote island, that is smaller in size when compared to any PUBG map. Free Fire is currently available to play for free on Google Play Store with in-app purchases. 4. Last Man Standing © Last Man Standing If you love to play PUBG on the PC, then 'Last Man Standing' is as close as you can get to a free-to-play PUBG game. It has all the core gameplay mechanics as PUBG, however, it isn't as refined. But, it is a great free alternative you can try playing right now. 5. Survival Royale © YouTube This is probably the closest PUBG Mobile clone you can find on the Play Store where it follows a similar game design and graphics. Having said that, the controls on this game are a bit more intuitive than PUBG Mobile and looks slightly better in terms of graphics. You can expect each round to last around 15 to 20 minutes which is more than enough to play during a break.
  23. The new update on PUBG has resulted in new security measures that prevent a cheater from taking advantage of the game. As a result, over 30,000 players have been banned thanks to a new feature called 'BattleEye'. The feature basically flags players who use cheats, aimbots and other hacks that give them an unfair advantage over other players. The 'BattleEye' Anti-Cheating feature detects and bans user using methods such as Radar Hacking. © YouTube The Radar hacking method is the most popular way for users to win games as it discloses the location information of enemies. Professional players like Cageman, Sezko, Hoffman88, Kragen and numerous others were affected and got banned. This particular hack used VPN services while it received and sent data from the server. As the location of enemies could be tracked real-time through a secondary monitor or a device, it would let users unfair advantage as it would result in hackers getting highest kill numbers. Our official statement regarding TEXQS's VAC ban. pic.twitter.com/qChhp3CVQj — Pittsburgh Knights (@KnightsGG) December 21, 2018 Having said that, the new anti-cheat software is not perfect and at times accidentally bans innocent players. Even though the new software has banned 30,000 accounts, it may affect innocent players in case it detects suspicious activity. Having said that, the new anti-cheat software has not been applied to the mobile versions of the game. PUBG players on mobile phones have not yet been affected by the purge and can still play the game normally. You can, however, report suspicious behaviour in case you find something odd after being killed. In case you are facing difficulty in getting your first chicken dinner on the new Vikendi map, follows our strategy guide here.
  24. Indian students, especially ones in college are familiar with the term 'ban'. From mobile ban to fun ban, the list goes on forever. PUBG or 'PlayerUnknown's Battleground' is a widely popular game that has changed the way we play games on our mobile phones. When you club these two trends, you get a PUBG Ban! An image of what seems to be a legal notice has been doing the rounds on Facebook stating that PUBG Mobile has been banned in India. It mentions that the game is "creating a lot of nuisance and irrespective activities and many students spoiling their own lives". © In wider circulation Even though the circumstances would make us believe the PUBG Mobile ban notice is for real, looking at the details makes us question the authenticity of the letter. While this may sound legitimate, it's completely fake. Firstly, there is no authority called "High Court of Maharashtra". Secondly, a judge named K. Srinivasulu doesn't exist according to Gadgets360. Incorporating ellipsis (three dots) is another instance of proving that it is not a professional document. © PUBG Corp From the first impression of the circular, it becomes pretty evident that the circular is not an official one. There are a lot of grammatical mistakes, and even the format does not match with the previous official circulars of the Indian judiciary system. For now, you have nothing to worry about. PUBG is running perfectly fine, available for download and nobody can enforce you to stop playing it right now. The Vikendi map is available as well, as it's always fun to play with snow, especially around the Christmas. © Reddit Though, other smaller organisations have taken a hard stance against playing PUBG. Students of Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) aren't allowed to play the game on campus or in the hostel because the warden issued a particularly threatening circular. On the sidelines, PUBG Corp has shut down around 30,000 accounts accused of using Radar Hack cheat codes on their battle royale game PlayerUnknown's Battleground or PUBG on Thursday. The Radar Hack is a cheat that allows players to see the positions of all other players on the map, giving them an instant advantage.
  25. PUBG's (PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds) recent 0.10.0 update brought several new security features other than the popular Vikendi map. The Anti-Cheat & Reporting feature that was introduced, flagged players who used cheats and hacks to gain undue advantage in the game over other players. A software called BattlEye was deployed that acts as an anti-cheat protection system and detects users exploiting Radar Hacking to win games. Radar hacks allow players to get information on other players' positioning during a match. The hack is quite difficult to detect as it makes use of VPN services while sending and receiving data from the server. © PUBG Corp. The latest incident of the software's usage has resulted in the ban of 30,000 players in PUBG, including some of the well-known players of the game on the global platform. The ban wave also hit fifteen other professional PUBG players including Sezk0, Cageman, PlayerJones, Papaya, Hoffmann88, Houlow, and Kraqen. These players won't be competing anytime soon unless they prove that the new anti-cheat algorithm got it all wrong. Can Ozdemir, also known as TEXQS, is among the most popular PUBG players to be banned as part of this initiative. © Github The Radar Hack allows players to see the positions of other players through a second monitor or a smartphone application. In a normal scenario, you need to be close to an opposing player to hear their footsteps and track them down. With the hack, an undue advantage is being scored by the player. PUBG Corp. found more than 30,000 accounts accused of employing cheat codes during the game. PUBG has imposed a ban wave which has forced such accounts to shut down. The website further reports that these hacks were mostly used by users participating in PUBG Mobile's e-sport competitions in Europe and North America. © PUBG Corp. For now, the wave of suspended accounts has only affected players on PC, XBOX, and PS4. Though, it is often seen that sometimes regular players are also banned by accident and we may see some players being unbanned in the coming days. This isn't the first time the company has been on a suspension spree. In June, they had a similar drive to ban players using unfair means to gain an advantage. Source: Newsweek
