PUBG Mobile has announced a surprising crossover collaboration with Warframe, bringing the popular battle royale together with the online multiplayer shooter.
From March 10 to April 19, PUBG Mobile players can earn Warframe-themed skins and other items by playing and completing special missions and events. The developers say that more event tie-ins will be announced soon, so expect more Warframe content in the coming weeks.
PUBG Mobile is the mobile version of the popular PC battle royale game. The mobile version has a history of unique collaborations with crossovers ranging from other video game series like League of Legends to real-life stars like K-Pop group Blackpink.
Warframe, then, is a perfect match given how popular the series is. Digital Extreme’s free-to-play shooter multiplayer was first released in 2013 and has been a quiet and growing success ever since.
In Warframe, players control a Tenno, a member of an ancient warrior race who finds themselves in the middle of an intergalactic war between multiple factions. Tenno wear armored suits called Warframe along with a variety of weapons to fight in this hostile environment. Check out IGN’s Warframe review here.
PUBG Mobile players will likely be able to acquire Warframe-specific cosmetics, but details for what exactly will be included in the crossover event haven’t been revealed.
