PUBG Mobile 0.15.5 update adds Royale Pass season 10, new weapons and vehicles, additional Team Deathmatch map

A little under a month ago, I covered the 0.15.0 update for PUBG Mobile, and once again, it's time to pore over the latest changes in the PUBG Mobile update coming to Android today. This point release signals the start of Royal Pass Season 10. There's also a new Team Deathmatch map called Ruins, and new weapons and vehicles are also included. You can also expect a new character to launch soon, though no date has been provided, so your guess is as good as mine as to when we can expect this character to go live.

PUBG Mobile 0.15.0 update adds a Payload mode, tweaks Survive Till Dawn, and improves performance

Last month I covered the release of the 0.14.5 update for PUBG Mobile, and it appears it's time once again to pore through the latest patch. The 0.15.0 update brings with it a new Payload mode (though it's not live yet), an update to the Survive Till Dawn - Halloween mode, as well as enhancements like a new mid-air leap, new vehicles, new weapons, exploding fuel drums, and performance enhancements. While I can't say this update is as monumental as Fortnite's latest Chapter release, it's understandable that you can't always expect huge changes to PUBG Mobile every month.

The battle royale genre has been getting a lot of attention with the recent mobile releases of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite. And with that popularity has come a slew of copycats and clones trying to beat their inspiration to the punch. So, of course, it was only a matter of time before lawsuits started flying, and apparently, Bluehole Studio has had enough as they have filed a suit against NetEase for copyright and trademark violations.

Last Friday I did a hands-on with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mobile thanks to its availability as a soft-launch title in Canada. Today it would appear that the PUBG Mobile has launched worldwide minus a few European regions, though it's exactly the same version (0.3.2) as the Canadian release from last week. So short of the new areas that can access the download, nothing much has changed.

Yesterday Tencent Games opened up the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mobile beta as a soft-launch listing on the Play Store that is freely available to players in Canada. Today I have sideloaded the APK and necessary OBB files in order to test it out and see how its development is shaping up. So far the performance has been excellent, though the touchscreen controls aren't great.
