Tencent is making a PUBG-inspired mobile game

Everyone wants to cash in on the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds success. The latest company to join the PUBG-inspired battle royale market is tech giant Tencent. It's one of the world's largest Internet companies, you'll recognize one of its subsidiaries - Epic Games - with the other hugely success battle royale game, Fortnite. Also inspired by PUBG. Tencent also owns 5% in Bluehole, who is the studio behind PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

Tencent's mobile game, however, pushes that PUBG-inspired theme perhaps a bit too far. The game is called "Glorious Mission" and, you guessed it, revolves around a 100-player last man standing, jump from a plane onto an island theme. As you'll see in the video example below, it even looks similar to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (whereas Fortnite at least has its own look).

Tencent is a China-owned company with headquarters in Shenzhen, China. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds have recently received a warning that it could face a ban in China because the game deviates from the values of socialism. It doesn't bid well for the developer, but perhaps they're banking on international success.

"Glorious Mission" shouldn't be mistaken for that other Chinese PUBG clone. Tencent is a highly successful and respected company. and they could very well make a success of a mobile version of PlayerUnknown's Battleground.

I just wonder how the original PlayerUnknown Battleground creator, Brendan Greene, feels about it all. You can check out "Glorious Mission" on the games' official website here.
