Why didn’t we ever get a live-action PUBG trailer in the west?
The PUBG mobile game launched in China last week, and it’s not terrible. In fact, it actually looks quite good. Who knew?
To go with the mobile game, uber-publisher Tencent – who have Scrooge McDuck levels of coffers – have released a live-action PUBG trailer. And it’s as surprisingly brilliant as the mobile game it’s advertising.
I’ll be honest, I have no idea what any of them are saying. If you do understand, and want to help us with a translation, get in touch in the comments below.
But even without understanding a word of what’s being said, it’s a splendid trailer. There’s so much excitement and loud action and fast movement to enjoy – kinda like kids TV, but with more violence – that understanding what they’re saying is largely superfluous.
And what do we have in the western world? We can offer you live-action PUBG parodies:
