Mobile esports games increased in popularity over the past few years with the rise of mobile gaming and enthusiast gamers. 

Mobile esports games also differ from traditional ones. They are usually shorter and simpler than their PC or console counterparts and better yet. Esports games are attractive for enthusiast gamers the same as the NBA betting odds are attractive for NBA fans or NFL Lines for NFL bettors.

If you enjoy mobile games, below is our list of the best mobile esports games.

Vainglory

Vainglory is a mobile device multiplayer battle arena game that is free to play but features in-app purchases. The game features two teams of five players who have to destroy the enemy base while defending their own.

Each player controls an avatar called a “hero,” which has unique abilities and weapons they can use to attack enemies and defend themselves. The game is typically played 5v5, although you can also play 3v3 or 4v4 matches if you prefer smaller groups.

The game has been around since 2014 and has grown in popularity year after year thanks to its high-quality graphics and fast-paced gameplay style that’s easy to pick up but hard to master. It also has robust support for esports competitions at local and international levels.

There’s even an annual world championship called Vainglory, where teams worldwide compete for big prize pools and glory!

Clash Royale

Clash Royale is a card-based battle game that plays two players against one another in a real-time battle. 

Players use cards they collect during gameplay to create their deck and build their army before entering the battlefield to fight against another player’s army. 

The game was released in 2016 and has become one of the most popular mobile esports games.

Fortnite

Fortnite is another battle royale title that pits two teams against each other as they fight to be the last team standing at the end of each round. 

There are three modes available in Fortnite: solo, duos, and squads, where players can join up with friends or strangers for some friendly competition (or not). 

The game became so popular when it was released back in 2017 that it has now become one of the most played online video games ever created!

PUBG Mobile

This is a multiplayer battle game created by Tencent Games. In this game, 100 players drop onto a map from a plane, with the last player or team standing as the winner. The game has been extremely popular, especially in India and China, and has broken several mobile game records.

The game was released for iOS and Android in September 2017 and was an instant hit among gamers. The game’s popularity can be attributed to its simplistic gameplay, easy to learn but difficult to master.

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes

This mobile game lets you collect and battle with characters from the Star Wars universe. It’s free, and you can purchase in-game currency with real money. The game has several different modes, including the ability to construct your team and take it into battle against other players’ teams.

The game launched in October 2015, with new content added regularly. The most recent update introduced new characters from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, like K-2SO and Jyn Erso.

Hearthstone

Hearthstone is the most popular mobile esports game for a good reason. It’s a card game based on World of Warcraft, and it has a thriving competitive scene. The game’s developer, Blizzard Entertainment, actually makes its games focusing on esports — Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm — but Hearthstone is their first mobile title.

Since its release in 2014, Hearthstone has drawn many players to the world of esports. There are multiple tournaments every year with cash prizes up to $1 million, making it one of the most lucrative games in the industry. The best players often have sponsorships from big companies like Twitch and Red Bull.

Call of Duty: Mobile

Call of Duty: Mobile offers a fast-paced, arcade-style shooter experience that allows players to jump into the action and compete on their phones or tablets in short bursts.

You can choose to play as one of three different classes from your phone: Assault, Tactical, or Marksman. You’ll also see your character’s face and customize your loadout with different weapons, attachments, and perks based on how you want to play.

The game has been built from the ground up for mobile gaming, making it easy to pick up and play in just seconds.

The former N1MP roster has experience in the VCT Game Changers EMEA Series 3 and came top 5 in the Medusa Series which new teammate Samsi won.

At EXCEL, we want to offer something new to show young female players a path into esports and believe through signing an existing squad who work well together competitively and socially, we could help and support them to being the best they could be. We hope that this will encourage more female gamers to get into esports and our success will come from our dedication to developing the scene”

EXCEL ESPORTS VALORANT Team Manager, Kevin ‘Noizeeh’ Jaskiewicz commented: “This is an amazing opportunity for EXCEL and the players involved.
