Fortnite dominates iOS mobile charts, PUBG soft launches in North America, and somebody stabs somebody else over PUBG
Fortnite’s mobile version is already kicking butt and taking names, even landlocked to iOS. According to app-tracker SensorTower, the game is ranked #1 for iPad and iPhone in pretty much every major English-speaking country and already appears on track to dethrone PUBG, having made 1.5M in just four days.
Meanwhile, PUBG’s mobile version has officially arrived in North America,
at least if you’re in Canada using Android. I wasn’t able to access it in the US earlier today, but expect it soon. Updating: It’s now soft-launched in the US on Android and iOS as well. As Polygon notes, PUBG won’t be a direct port with crossplatforminess, though it’s does include the original map.
Either way, maybe don’t play PUBG around Barber Emily Javier, who apparently stabbed boyfriend Alex Lovell with a katana for cheating and playing too much PUBG in his attempt to become a pro player. Actually, maybe just don’t be around her at all. Lovell will be OK, by the way, though he can’t walk yet and his limbs and fingers took serious damage. What in the actual.
