PUBG update: The latest


PUBG Mobile April update overview

PUBG Mobile arctic mode update

Release date: April 16, 2020

We might all be stuck at home due to the global pandemic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t explore new modes in PUBG Mobile! Starting tomorrow (April 16), Arctic Mode will enable a brand new way of experiencing the classic Vivendi map.

In it, players have a new foe added to the standard 99 enemies on the field: frigid weather. Gather branches and start fires indoors to keep your temperature high or start taking damage. You can also use new items or cook items to restore body heat, giving new meaning to “chicken dinner”.

As an extra bonus, the snowboards added in the Winter Festival are back, and remote-control drones are making their debut. Use them to scout out the landscape and gain a tactical advantage over other combatants!

PUBG Mobile update 0.17.0 overview

PUBG Mobile Update Season 12

Release date: March 3, 2020.

It’s been well over a month since the last PUBG Mobile update, but as March begins it’s time to celebrate the second anniversary of PUBG Mobile’s release! Special events like Season 12’s “2gether We Play” theme, arcade machines, and an amusement park ride popping up in classic Erangel will punctuate the festivities starting next week.

This update also adds a new AirDrop weapon called the DBS Shotgun. It fires two rounds of 12-gauge ammo for extreme damage at close range.

Other notable changes include death replays, colorblind mode, enhanced teammate volume controls, and a return of the extra-realistic Hardcore Mode. For a full list of changes in the PUBG Mobile 0.17.0 update, check out the official patch notes.


PUBG Mobile update 0.16.0 overview

PUBG Mobile update snow paradise

Release date: December 11, 2019.

It’s wintertime in Erangel, and that means it’s time to hit the slopes! Queueing in Classic mode has the chance to trigger Snow Paradise, where once per match players can hop in a cable car and freestyle snowboard down the mountain.

Snow Paradise isn’t the only new mode in the latest PUBG Mobile update, with the new vehicular combat mode RageGear available starting today. It splits players into two teams, with some driving and others manning a variety of mounted weapons. Don’t worry if you’re not into driving, because the driver can shoot too. 

There are a number of other new features as well, including the ability to switch between first-person and third-person at will in Classic Mode. Plus, there are new cosmetics, friendly fire restrictions, performance improvements, weapon balancing, and more.

PUBG Mobile update 0.15.5 overview

PUBG Fury of the Wasteland Update

Release date: November 8, 2019

Another month, another PUBG Mobile update, and this point release ushers in the game’s Royal Pass Season 10 — Fury of the Wasteland. In this latest content update, we say goodbye to last month’s spooky shenanigans and hello to the new rugged Apocalypse theme!

One of the most exciting and substantial additions in PUBG Mobile’s newest content is a new team deathmatch map called Ruins. The new map landscape features ancient Mayan looking ruins hidden in the middle of a lush rainforest. It looks like there will be plenty of nooks and crannies to hide in on this map, so queue the campers.

Players can immediately get their hands on a brand new high fire-rate SMG and a new damage resistant vehicle, and a new vehicle engineer character is coming in the near future. The game is even introducing a new companion system soon that will let players use a falcon to collect materials on their behalf. 

There are other new in-game rewards and tweaks coming in this point release, so check it out for yourself to experience all PUBG Mobile has to offer!
