PUBG update: The latest


PUBG Mobile update 0.14.0 overview

PUBG Mobile update infection mode

Release date: August 14, 2019

The August PUBG Mobile update is here, and with it an exciting new zombie infection game mode. In it, there are two teams — zombies and defenders — and the first one to wipe out the other wins. Only defenders have guns, but each defender the zombies take down will add another player to their ranks.

Sticking with this season’s nautical theme, a slew of new cosmetic items have been made available. Plus, the daily mission rewards have been revamped, making it much easier for free-to-play players to unlock new goodies. 

Tencent hasn’t released the official patch notes for update 0.14.0, but here are the most important changes:

  • Sea Treasure Themes – To continue the Summer season of nautical fun, an all-new theme of Sea Treasure graces PUBG MOBILE’s main menu and in-game items;
  • Global Treasure Hunt – Today’s treasure-themed update brings with it an unprecedented in-game hunt with million-dollar prize pool. Players can collect gold, silver and bronze compasses to redeem rewards;
  • Royale Pass Season 8 – Previous fan-favorite items have restocked for players to earn and unlock;where
  • Daily Mission System Update – All daily in-game challenges unlock upgraded rewards for even more chances to earn rare loot;
  • iOS Background Downloading – iOS players can now keep PUBG MOBILE open as a background app while downloading updates;
  • Android Resources Extension Pack – Beginning today, the Android installation package size has been reduced, and rarely-used in-game equipment can be stored in the Resources Extension Pack until they are needed.

PUBG Mobile update history


PUBG Mobile update 0.13.5 overview

Release date: July 16, 2019.

Season 8 is finally here, and with it a slew of new costume and unlockables. This season is ocean themed, so expect beach outfits and accessories. But not all of the items added in this PUBG Mobile update are aesthetic, with a new submachine gun called the PP-19 dropping into Erangel and Vikendi. It uses an oversized magazine with 53 rounds of 9mm ammo.

On top of all the new content, there’s a new graphics setting for HDR mode on high-end devices. It isn’t available on all devices, but Snapdragon 855 devices like the OnePlus 7 Pro have it. Be aware that it will cause the game to eat through your battery even more than it already did.
