Highlights of the Story

  • Tencent Gaming Buddy can be used to play the game on PC
  • PUBG Lite PC version can be used post ban
  • PUBG PC can be purchased for Rs 999 on Steam

PUBG Mobile has always been at the top on Google Play Store. However, if you are someone who does not like to play on mobile and is a desktop gamer, an emulator is the way to go. It is definitely worth it to spend time playing on an emulator and take in the experience as the game might get removed from PlayStore any day now.

Many people prefer to play the game using BlueStacks as an emulator. After all, BlueStacks is the best out there when it comes to emulating android games on PC. However, there is a catch. Tencent, the company that owns PUBG, also has a dedicated emulator for the game. The Tencent Gaming Buddy might be a better option to go for in this particular case. We have noticed that the Tencent Emulator loads textures and is a bit smoother in comparison to BlueStacks when running PUBG. You can definitely opt for the latter when it comes to other games. But, since the Tencent Emulator is a dedicated one, it performs slightly if not a whole lot better. Simply, it is more optimized to play the game than other emulators.

The Tencent Gaming Buddy is also quite easy to download and install.

Even if the emulator does a pretty good job at handling the game, it will not be a 100% perfect. The game will have bad frame drops and it will be really difficult in handling tense situations in the game. However, that can be solved by simply downloading the version that was made for PCs. The PUBG Lite version is available to download on PC. It is not only much more seamless, but very well-optimized.
