PUBG Mobile is one of the most popular games among people nowadays. The game had 75 million pre-registrations when it was first announced to launch for mobile. Tencent Games develop PUBG Mobile, so it doesn’t allow you to use a Gamepad. You can only play it using touch controls. However, I found the right way to play PUBG on the computer using a controller. Let’s go through it.
PUBG: Mobile in a Computer
Now before you go to install any other Android emulator in your smartphone to play PUBG, let me tell you the PUBG only supports touch inputs, and you probably find it hard to play PUBG using an emulator. The Gameloop emulator is specially designed for play smartphone games on a PC, and you can easily trick the game by thinking that you are playing the game on a smartphone.
Download and install the Gameloop installer from the Gameloop website using this link. After you set it up on your computer, it starts installing the Virtual Machine and then the game. In my case, it took 15 minutes on 10 Mbps connections to complete the installation, so the file size of PUBG be around 1.5 GB, while the emulator size should be about 3 GB.
After the game is successfully installed, you’d get to see the Window with a Play Button. Just click the Play Button, and the game will start loading. Now you would be able to control it like regular PUBG using a keyboard and a mouse.
The best thing about this Gameloop emulator is that you can also play games on it with a PS4 and Xbox controller. Mouse and Keyboard controls are already programmed in the emulator, and you’d have to manually map every key on the screen for the PS4 and Xbox controller. You can easily map keys by clicking the keyboard controls button on the right pane and selecting the Gamepad option instead of the keyboard.
I played PUBG using the Keyboard and the Controller, and both of them works quite well. However, the PUBG runs quite heavy and consumes noticeable resources of your computer. You easily can save the progress of your game by logging into your Facebook account.
I prefer to play PUBG on the PC, and it is a better way of playing the game. I am not sure if Tencent would allow you to play the game for long once they figure out that the PUBG Mobile is emulated?
