Omji Mehrotra By Omji Mehrotra | October 21, 2020

In the last decade, we have witnessed a great change in the gaming industry. With the introduction of online games to the AR/VR technology-based games, the gaming industry is evolving and so is the world of gamers.

One such game that is reaching the new heights is PUBG – PlayUnkown’s BattleGrounds. The real-life players sitting miles away from each other and yet playing together against the teams on a deserted island is now ruling the market.

The game takes the users to the next level slowly as the game progresses creating a buzz and adrenaline rush among the players. Hence, we can say proudly that the game is not going anywhere for the coming few years.

Getting inspired by this game is not going to surprise anyone and many owners are even coming up with similar ideas to be in the market that can give a throat-cutting competitor to the PUBG. There is no doubt that the game development unity guide can help in giving an understanding of PUBG, but it is not that simple.

However, if you feel that it is easy to develop a game like PUBG then you need to rethink. Any type of mobile game development is difficult but with the innovations and technological advancements implemented in PUBG, it can be anything but easy.

The AR and VR implementations in the game like PUBG have given the gaming community something innovative and advanced to look forward to. With this said, let us walk you through the major steps of developing a gaming app like PUBG.

Let us give you a better understanding of the Game App Development.

1. Game Strategies

The first and foremost step of this process is to come up with the mobile app development strategies for the game. It is essential to be clear about the game challenges, functions, inhabits, and the key players that are already in the markets. This gives an idea of the game and what should be the next step to develop the next big game-changer (pun intended!).
If we are talking about PUBG then it will include features like vehicles, weapons, and many other supplied requirements. Then there is the option of real-time chatting and voice note exchange. Along with this, there are rewards, visuals, audios, and even the graphics that are winning the hearts of gamers. 

2. Platforms 

The next question is iPhone Vs Android that is going on for more than a decade. It is essential to know the platforms that are targeted first for the game players. It can for the iOS or Android platform as per the preference of the users. The audience is taken under consideration while choosing the platform for development.
Android platforms have a plethora of applications around games whereas iOS is also not behind with more than 1000 games now available on the store. Hence, it is best to be aware of the apps and what market to hit fit followed by another. 

3. Concept

Once the idea and platform are generated then comes the concept. Do you want to bring the same flair to the application like in PUBG where users come to the batter arena to fight? Or do you want to add something different to the application? It is essential to be aware of the new features, a battle arena, settings, etc. that are to be added in the application like PUBG.
This aspect should include the hardships for users, challenges, rewards, features, etc. that can hook players to the dynamics of the game. The challenges can be time restraint, weapon type, energy level, etc. makes it more interesting for the players. 

4. Graphics

Next in line is the graphics, designs, and development. A game like PUBG is all about the real-time gameplay for users in which they work together as a team to win a level. Additionally, there are features like sharpness, brightness, and other relating settings that must be included in the game. It should be designed in a way that won’t affect the user experience but can offer necessary features to them while working smoothly on the tablet or smartphones. 

Cost of Game Development Like PUBG

The cost of mobile app development like PUBG deepens upon time, graphics, features, and a diligent team that can work perfectly together to obtain the results. Different aspects help in determining the right cost for developing the app like PUBG.

If we talk in numbers then the overall cost of PUBG-like game development will be around $50,000. This is mainly due to the graphic design and development that is a bit time taking but with the perfect results.

With this, comes the responsibility to choose the right technology stack for your mobile app for instance. 

  1. Java – One of the most famous programming languages that are used for decades is Java. This platform is famous as the side sourcing language that is used for the different platforms but now it is becoming famous as the Android programming language. 
  2. Python – Next programming language that can be used for the development of a game like PUBG is Python. It is a core platform that is used by the developers to work on the adaptable and functional game.
  3. Unreal Engine 4 – To get a realistic approach to the game, Unreal Engine 4 is used that offers portability and amazing graphics. 
  4. Pearl 6 –PUBG also uses a great platform like Pearl 6 that offers oriented features. It includes interprocess communication and simplifies coding. Additionally, it is responsible to detect any sort of error during the early stages that make it a great platform.
