Tencent’s mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been nominated for two Google Play Awards.

Let’s hear it for the plucky underdog. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile – or PUBG Mobile for short – has been nominated for two 2018 Google Play Awards. The game, which is a stripped-down but remarkably robust version of the PC and console phenomenon is nominated in the Best Breakthrough Hit, and Best Community Building Game categories.

In the first category it’s up against games including Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Cooking Craze, Empire & Puzzles, and Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition.

The Best Community Building Game nominees include mobile stalwarts Clash Royale, Episode, and Pokémon GO, plus MMORPG, Lineage 2: Revolution.

In a press statement, an anonymous spokesperson for PUBG Corp and Tencent spoke from the heart, saying:

“The team is honored and thrilled that PUBG Mobile has been recognized by Google Play. The response to the game from fans has energized everyone at the studio as we are heads down working on new, exciting updates for PUBG Mobile.”

The Google Play awards recognise the achievements of apps and games across a range categories.
