With gaming on the rise in India, several games have grown in popularity and capture players’ attention more than others.

This community primarily consists of consumers who play games online, which has led to the growing demand for immersive gaming. In this article, we will look into some of the most played online games in Nagpur.

PUBG – PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a crazy success not only in India but also across the world. PUBG managed to start the fashion for battle royale encounters, in which vast numbers of players are placed onto sprawling areas. Then they have to gather gear and fight against each other even as the playing region steadily shrinks. In the game, 100 players can battle against each other to be the last one standing. The last person remaining gets a chicken dinner. 

Many other games have been launched to give “PUBG” a strong competition, but it continues to be the most installed online game (in this genre) among players in India through both iOS and Android devices. Even Fortnite does not appear to be able to slow this game’s popularity for the time being. 


Bluehole, a Korean developer’s subsidiary PUBG Corp created this title and designed it for PC. Tencent(China’s largest gaming company) entered into a partnership with the Korean developer, where they worked to enter the market.
