PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite (IOS, Android)
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds first amassed a large following on PC and later Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but the free-to-play PUBG Mobile is a great alternative version for anyone dying to get their battle royal fix on the go.
The game uses a combination of virtual buttons and sticks to deliver a shooting experience way better than it has any right to be, and with optional motion controls, you can even fine-tune your shot to take out way distant targets using a sniper rifle. As with its larger siblings, PUBG Mobile supports duo and team-based matches, and built-in voice chat lets you coordinate with your teammates before you get to a new area.
You can even play PUBG Mobile in either first-person or third-person perspectives, and you don’t have to own a mobile device to be a part of the action. Publisher Tencent created its own emulation tool so you can play the game from your PC with a mouse and keyboard. It doesn’t have the same fidelity as the full PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, but it’s totally free to play and just as addicting
Black Squad (Windows)
Sometimes, you just want the get down with the get down fundamentals of first-person shooters: the shooting. With Black Squad, NS Studio has made a relentlessly twitchy and precise multiplayer experience that feels right at home for fans of earlier Call of Duty titles and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The game has plenty of variety for players of all ability and styles to feel like they’re making progress and contributing to their team. Getting a kill results in a wonderful over-the-top sound effect and a huge splatter of blood on nearby walls, so there will never be any doubt if your target is down.
