The market for online PC games is increasing as more people are looking for games to be played during their free time. As such, here are some of the trending games in Asia:

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG)

If you are looking for a multiplayer online game featuring a battle royale, then you should go ahead and try the Playerunknown’s Battleground or the PUBG. This game was published and developed by the PUBG Corporation which is a subsidiary of the Bluehole.

The PUBG was based on the past models made by Brendan Green or also known as Player Unknown. He was inspired by the 2000 Japanese film entitled as ‘Battle Royale’. Thereafter, he expanded it to be a standalone game basing in his own playful imagination.

In this game, there are around 100 players who land in an island via a parachute. Then, they are to look for equipment or weapons to kill other competitors. In the game, they have to look after themselves for survival and avoid being killed.

Over time, the safe area in the game’s map decreases its size. As such, the players are forced to gather in tighter areas and fight with other competitors. The last surviving fighter is declared as the winner in the game. Indeed, this is a fun game to play like the w88.

Counter-Strike: Global Online

Valve Corporation and the Hidden Path Entertainment has developed a multi-player and first-person shooting game called as the Counter-Strike: Global Online.

In this game, there are two teams who will fight against one another: the counter-terrorists and the terrorists. They were both tasked to eliminate the opposite team while on the mission to complete various objectives. Depending on the mode of the game, the Terrorists must protect the hostages at all costs. They are also tasked to plant the bombs around the area. Meanwhile, the Counter-Terrorists must do whatever it takes to prevent the planting of the bombs. They must rescue the innocent hostages and defuse the bombs.

Dota 2

Valve Corporation has developed and introduced another game which is called as DOTA 2. This game is free to play and it features a multiplayer game (MOBA). This is the sequel of Defense of the Ancients (DOTA), which is considered as the community mod for Warcraft III.

The DOTA 2 is played in two teams composing of five players each. Each team occupies a base which they need to defend. Moreover, each player has its own hero who has unique skills and play styles.

World of Tanks SEA

Wargaming, which is a Belarusian-Cypriot Company, has developed a massive multi-player game called the World of Tanks. In this game, it features mid-20th century usage of the war vehicles. The game setting is around 1930s to 1960s.

The game is for free like the w88, however, gamers have the option to pay for a fee to enjoy its premium features. It features the player versus player gameplay and each gamer has an armored vehicle to control. This vehicle can be heavy, light, medium, tank-destroyer, or self-propelled gun. Finally, the World of Tanks game has debuted during the World Cyber Games as an eSports game in 2012.


  1. I feel like CS:GO and PUBG are just popular worldwide, and not just Asia; it’s sort of expected considering there’s a lot of overlap in regional and national popularities when it comes to popular games in general. I was thinking more of games specifically popular in Asia than the rest of world, games like Nexon’s MapleStory.
