Mobile gaming has progressed massively in the last few years, with better processors and graphics cards mobiles can now play games that were once reserved for dedicated mobile consoles. In addition, the cost for data plans has slowly been decreasing, meaning that several gigabytes of data are now standard in most mobile packages. With these two combined, the opportunity for multiplayer online games has increased. Gamers can now get online and play against their friends, even without the need for WIFI. We have collected some of the best mobile multiplayer games currently available in 2018.
This game was released for the PC first, but now PUBG mobile is the scaled down version designed for both Android and Apple smartphones. And it plays surprisingly well.
