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.
