The Best Mobile Esports Games
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 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 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 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!
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 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.

With new momentum into the second esport season: Ski Challenge plans Nations Cup
Ski Challenge, the fast-paced esports game by Greentube, has become one of the most popular sports games just a few months after its official launch. For the second season, the developers of NOVOMATIC Digital Gaming and Entertainment Division, in close cooperation with ski associations and co-shareholders from Austria (ÖSV), Switzerland (Swiss-Ski), and Germany (DSV), are planning an attractive innovation for all ski and game enthusiasts: the Nations Cup, starting in autumn 2023.
Developed as a tribute to Greentube’s first published game, Ski Challenge has had an extremely successful first season with over half a million downloads on iOS and Android since its release in October 2022. The game is not only popular among players but has also established itself as an attractive platform for high-profile global brand partnerships.
Thanks to continuous and extensive updates that enhance the competitive nature of Ski Challenge, Greentube and the three successful ski associations, ÖSV, Swiss-Ski, and DSV, have now joined forces as shareholders to create an exciting new tournament series: the Ski Challenge Nations Cup.
This thrilling competition invites players to represent their countries and compete for honor, glory, and attractive prizes in multiple qualifying rounds and the tournament phase. But that’s not all. Ski Challenge players who qualify for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland will now compete as official national teams for their respective ski associations.
The tournament events will take place parallel to the actual Ski World Cup events. With this expansion, Ski Challenge aims to further strengthen its esports concept and transfer the enthusiasm of skiing into the virtual world.
Michael Bauer, Greentube’s CFO/CGO, said: “We are thrilled to be able to add a number of new teams to the game as part of our Ski Challenge Nations Cup update. These federations are staples of the sport and give the game another level of legitimacy. We firmly believe our highly dedicated and loyal player base will be delighted with these upcoming additions as Ski Challenge continues to grow as a premier esports title.”
Diego Züger, CEO Commercial Swiss-Ski: “This is a great opportunity for skiing. With the establishment of the Nations Cup and the entry into esports, we will inspire new target groups and further develop skiing as a whole. The successful cooperation with Ski Austria and the German Ski Association, as well as Greentube, shows that a lot is possible with good collaboration.”
Stefan Schwarzbach, Board of Communication, German Ski Association: “With the Nations Cup, we as associations want to establish a direct connection to real skiing and our top athletes. Ski Challenge is increasingly becoming an attractive communication platform to inspire children and young people for skiing. In the medium term, our clubs and ski clubs should also benefit from this.”
Christian Scherer, Secretary General, Austrian Ski Association: “We are incredibly excited to launch a virtual tournament series that will revolutionize the world of skiing and bring nations together. This initiative expands the reach and ignites the competitive spirit of skiers worldwide. It is undoubtedly one of the most exciting announcements of 2023 as we embark on this exciting journey to shape the future of skiing and create an unforgettable experience for all involved.”
DMCC Publishes Latest “Future of Trade” Report on Gaming and Esports
Gaming revenues are expected to almost double by 2027 from 2021 in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, reaching USD 6 billion, according to DMCC’s latest Future of Trade 2023 report titled “Gaming in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA): Geared for growth”. A young and digital-savvy population, high levels of digital connectivity, and government support are driving the region’s emergence as a consumer and creator hub.
Gaming and esports are both fast growing consumer segments, benefiting from rapid advancements in technology as well as broader and more inclusive audiences. The UAE and Saudi Arabia lead the region, supported by high income levels, strong digital engagement, and public investment initiatives. Globally, Asia Pacific constitutes the largest market share and China, the US and Japan are the largest individual markets.
The report gathers contributions from key industry leaders to establish the critical drivers of the industry’s accelerated growth in the MENA region and beyond. It also examines the impact on gaming and esports from a technology, culture and business perspective, covering global consumer trends, the emergence of MENA as a gaming and esports hub, and the key challenges that the industry needs to address to increase revenues further.
Guiding the global industry’s accelerated growth from nearly USD 200 billion in revenues in 2021 to USD 340 billion in 2027, the report outlines a set of key recommendations for governments and businesses, namely:
- Diversify esports revenue streams from sponsorship to new direct-to-fan monetisation models – including digital merchandising, loyalty programmes and training platforms for amateur gamers – to boost revenues.
- Develop appropriate regulatory safeguards to ensure privacy, security and safety online in the digital gaming ecosystem and provide a business-friendly environment – including smoother visa systems to allow esports professionals and audiences to attend live events – to attract talent into the region and elevate it into a global industry leader.
Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, DMCC, said: “Gaming has come to the fore of entertainment globally, driving rapid growth especially in the MENA region, which now constitutes 15% of the global player base. The rise of gamification in areas such as education, healthcare, and other sectors has demonstrated gaming’s role in facilitating economic activity more broadly. Ensuring the accelerated growth of the gaming sector will have a measurable impact on the future of markets around the world, as well as the future of trade. As DMCC seeks to solidify Dubai’s reputation as a global trade and economic hub, efficiently activating opportunities within the gaming sector will prove essential.”
Among the most closely watched segments is esports, which is expected to post revenue growth of 23.3% between 2019 and 2024 in MENA. Fuelling this is the region’s young demographic, engagement from international broadcasters and sponsors, and government support. Tapping into this economic potential, DMCC partnered with YaLLa Esports, the Dubai-based professional esports organisation, to launch the DMCC Gaming Centre in December 2022. The Centre supports the growth of the industry in Dubai by providing gaming businesses with access to global capital, leading industry talent, and an ecosystem that allows them to operate efficiently and with confidence.
Due to the UAE’s strong business environment and infrastructure, as well as its status as a gateway to the Middle East and Asia Pacific regions, various international gaming developers have set up their regional headquarters in the country. Ubisoft is based in Abu Dhabi, while the gaming giant Tencent set up its MENA HQ in Dubai along with Riot Games. In Saudi Arabia, the kingdom has included gaming as a core element of its Neom project and has already made investments worth over $1.7 billion on the gaming industry.
