It's been two months since PUBG Mobile received its last update, and today marks the launch of patch 1.6. As expected with each patch, 1.6 offers new content, new tweaks, new bug fixes, and plenty more. There's a fresh mode called Flora Menace, where players will have to survive an alien plant invasion. Plus, quite a few maps and modes are making a return. There's also a new social feature debuting today that should make it easier to view and share player stats, and month three of the Royale Pass will begin to roll out soon, starting on the 17th.
It's been two months, but it would appear that it's time once again to check out the latest patch for PUBG Mobile. Tomorrow marks the release for patch 1.5, and it brings with it a host of changes, including a new design for Erangel that revolves around futuristic tech, and so Tesla (the car company) has managed to sneak its way into this new high-tech theme, which is why a Tesla Gigafactory is part of the fresh redesign for Erangel. On top of this, players can expect new firearms, a new vehicle, as well as a change to the Royale Pass that will award players faster.
Surprisingly PUBG Corporation has managed to stick to a monthly release schedule for the last two months, and so it's time once again to see what the latest patch brings to Playerunknown's Battlegrounds Mobile. The update to 1.3 offers a new festival mode in celebration of the game's anniversary, a new chapter where you can choose to play undercover, a Mosin-Nagant sniper rifle, and plenty of map and performance improvements. Oh, and the next Royal Pass will begin later this month, so there isn't long to wait.
PUBG Corporation isn't one to stick to a rigid schedule when it comes to new patches, so we didn't see an update in December. Well, it looks as though the studio is possibly back to its old schedule for the time being since it just released patch 1.2 on the Play Store. As you would expect, new content is here for all to enjoy, such as the Runic Power Mode, where players will get to choose from three new skills that require special runes to power. Of course, new weapons, new options, and plenty of game improvements are in the mix as well, which I'll detail below.
PUBG Corporation has announced the arrival of patch 1.1, and this update brings with it a slew of changes, including a new Metro-themed crossover that offers a brand new game mode called Metro Royale. Players can also expect a new underground world to explore as well as Metro-themed rewards when season sixteen launches later this month. Of course, new maps, new gear, and tons of bug fixes are also included with today's free update to version 1.1, which I'll detail after the break.
PUBG Mobile was initially released on Android in 2018, and over the last two years, the game has seen many updates and improvements, but it still hasn't reached version 1.0. Well, this will all change on September 8th. PUBG Corporation has just announced that a slew of improvements are coming with the update to version 1.0 this September. This is so the game will offer a smoother experience for eSports. You see, PUBG Mobile World League and the World Championship are going to be combined this November into one event called PUBG Mobile Global Championship (absolutely nothing confusing about that), which will offer a $2-million prize pool.
Typically new PUBG expansions drop near the beginning of the month, and so patch 0.19.0 is officially available starting today. What's unique about this release is that it marks the first time the game has been updated without taking the servers offline in order to ensure a better gaming experience for players, which is nice to see. Beyond the new method to push updates, players can expect to find an all-new Nordic-style map Livik, a map-exclusive vehicle, and two new map-exclusive firearms. It's also clear that PUBG Corporation is continuing the prep work for the launch of season 14 on July 14th.
It looks like PUBG Corporation skipped patch 0.17.5, but 0.18.0 is here as of this morning, and it brings with it more than a few changes and additions. The primary focus this month is the release of Mad Miramar, an update to the Classic Miramar map that adds refreshed graphics and a bunch of new zones, not to mention, sandstorms. The P90 makes its first appearance in the Arena Mode, and new cheat detection has been implemented. We also know EvoGround is slated to receive a new mode sometime soon, and new Classic Mode Content should be coming soon as well, along with the launch of Royale Pass Season 13 on May 13th.
We last talked about PUBG Mobile when the 0.16.5 patch landed in January, and so it would appear that the month of February was completely skipped now that patch 0.17.0 is here at the beginning of March. As expected, this is an unorganized update, even worse than previous months, since the majority of content advertised in this patch won't actually go live today. Season 12 does not start until March 9th, and the Amusement Park Mode in Classic Erangel won't arrive until March 12th. There's also some type of Artic Mode coming too, but a date hasn't even been provided for that.
Now that January has been officially underway for a week, it's time once again to check out the latest monthly update for PUBG Mobile. Patch 0.16.5 brings with it some notable additions, including the start of Royale Pass Season 11 (starting tomorrow 1/10), but you can also expect to find a new Domination game mode, a new Arena map, as well as a new vehicle. It's also worth noting that those that update between January 9th and the 15th will receive 20 Silver, 2,000 BP, and 1 Blue Glider Trail.
