At first I thought I was hallucinating but no it’s actually real

It's been in the works for months and has been pretty widely known about. But, this isn't something to be amazingly excited about. I have to question how well it will run on a handheld device. And, I haven't looked into if it's cross-platform like Fortnite is (which is hilarious to watch a smartphone player try to keep up with their PC/Console squad). Interesting, for sure. But, likely more of a show move IMO.

My Note 8 runs it pretty spectacularly at a 30 fps at 1080x2220. It's on the highest settings as well. Then again, flagship Samsung phone, I don't know how well it will perform on others.

Well, I suppose I should check and see how well it plays on my S7. Wait, is it free? lol

Well, it ran surprisingly well. But, the controls are garbage. You can't easily scan and shoot at the same time, which is a real detriment to the game.

I does not run too well on devices with the Kirin 950 processor (Honor 8). I know my phone push more frame rates, but optimization could do better work. Looks like it's running on real engine 4 though.

I don't really understand why they feel the need to put games like PUBG and Fortnite on mobile, but I guess other people will download the game.

I found a way to bypass the enterprise mode on mine so probably.

What I did was take the backplate off the chromebook and took the battery out for about 15 mins. For some reason that worked for me and I was able to access dev mode. It probably depends on what model you have.

My question is: how did the developers manage to get the game to work so well on a screen significantly smaller than what is found on PCs and consoles?

Why do I always see Nater being scolded?
