PUBG Mobile is one of the best and also among the very first Battle Royale games on the mobile platform. The game gained a substantial amount of popularity soon after its release. Polished, and well-optimized gameplay along with really amazing graphics kept the game on top ever since then. PUBG Mobile generated the most revenue last month in July surpassing some of the most popular mobile games and became the most earning game in July. Recently, a teaser came out on social media that stated about PUBG Mobile New ERA Update. The tweet read, “We humbly request your presence as we announce a New Era for PUBG MOBILE!.” In this article, we are going to discuss what is PUBG Mobile New Era Update, announcement timings, and what to expect from the New Era update.
PUBG Mobile New Era Update Announcement
PUBG Mobile took to twitter and other social media accounts to announce its new Era update. There was not much we can conclude by looking at the tweet. The only thing that we are sure about the PUBG Mobile New Era update is the date for the announcement. If you are very much excited about the PUBG Mobile New Era and want to be a part of the official announcement then you must be ready to witness the same on August 24, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. IST. The screenshot of the official tweet regarding the PUBG Mobile New Era Update is attached above.
PUBG Mobile New Era Update Expectations
Now we are not 100% sure about what could be announced at the PUBG Mobile New Event that will be held live on YouTube and Facebook. But, the only thing we can do is make assumptions about the same. Based on some rumors, we have finalized some of the features that could be announced at the PUBG Mobile New Era Live Event.
PUBG Mobile Version Revision
Being a regular PUBG Mobile player, you must be aware of the versions that are changed after every major update. Every time a major update for PUBG Mobile arrives, the version numbering is increased by 0.01 and this trend has been followed by the PUBG Mobile developers since the very first season. Currently, PUBG Mobile is on the 0.19.0 version, and considering the 0.01 fact, the next version has to be 0.20.0. But this would not happen this time and, there would be no version 0.20.0. And, instead, the upcoming PUBG Mobile update would be numbered as 1.0 or 1.0.0. The sudden change in numbering of the update versions indicates that PUBG Mobile will be undergoing a major update, and a NEW ERA will begin.
PUBG Mobile Erangel 2.0 Update
Agree with the fact that PUBG Mobile Erangel 2.0 map is the most awaited new map in the game. Being announced during the PMCO Finals in 2019, the map has been in the development phase since then. The PUBG Mobile developers have been working on the mobile version of Erangel 2.0 for quite a long time. The reason for the excessive long delay in the release of Erangel 2.0 is due to a huge number of bugs and glitches. Fixing those bugs and ensuring that everything is working as expected is the utmost priority of the developer team that is working on the PUBG Mobile Erangel 2.0 map. Now that PUBG Mobile New Era update is coming, there are quite big chances that the much-awaited PUBG Mobile Erangel 2.0 map could be announced during the New Era Event.
Revamped User Interface
PUBG Mobile has been notorious when it comes to making changes to the game main screen. Already multiple updates completely changed the look of the main screen. This creates a lot of confusion for many players and makes it difficult to get used to. Rumors suggest that the PUBG Mobile 1.0 update would once again change the main screen interface of the game. This means you must be ready for all the confusion in finding some settings.
Another noticeable change in the user interface include the changing of the PUBG Mobile UC icon. PUBG Mobile UC is the in-game currency that is used to purchase items in the game. From the very beginning the UC was represented by a stack of notes, but with the PUBG Mobile New Era Update it would be displayed by a black and gold icon as can be seen in the screenshot attached above.
PUBG Mobile Ultra HD Graphics
If you have ever wanted to experience console-level gaming on your mobile, then get ready to experience the same. Looking at the current PUBG Mobile graphics quality, we still cannot complain. But, PUBG Mobile Ultra HD Graphics that has been lying inside the game graphics settings while displaying the “Coming Soon!” message when anyone wanted to apply the same. Now that the “Coming Soon” message is going to disappear with the next update, and soon players with capable devices would be able to apply Ultra HD graphics in PUBG Mobile.
Although to apply the Ultra HD Graphics, the player must have to download the UHD Resource pack that would be around 150-200MB in size depending upon the device.
Vehicle Button Controls Customization
Many players might not find the option to customize the vehicle control button useful, but for me, this is a long-awaited feature. The very first thing that I want to do after customizing my main controls was to make the vehicle control buttons according to my convenience. But, sadly, there were no such settings back then. But now, finally, PUBG Mobile is bringing the option to customize the vehicle control buttons with the 1.0 update.
Vehicle Music Toggle Button
The vehicle music or radio feature was added, after the collaboration of PUBG Mobile and Alan Walker. Many players enjoyed it, and may players found it distracting. Why the new vehicle music toggle button would be useful is because the current option to turn off the music only applies to the player who has turned the music off. This means if you have turned off the vehicle music from your settings, then only you can not hear it, but the enemies can. This has got many campers killed in the match who camp inside sitting their vehicle thinking their music is off, but in reality, its over for them, and this is quite funny.
Ability to Mark Multiple Locations
This is quite an interesting, yet useful feature that would benefit the players in multiple ways during the match. The PUBG Mobile New Era Update is all about improvements, and this feature is another great improvement in the game for players. Currently, each player can only mark a single location using the marker feature that feels quite limited. With the PUBG Mobile 1.0 update, it would be possible for the players to mark more than one location on the map that would be quite handy to make the game more strategic and planned.
Although, there would still be some limit on how many locations a player can mark on the map. According to me, players would be able to mark up to 5 locations on the map. Whatever be the number, the feature would still be very useful.
PUBG Mobile New Era Conclusion
PUBG Mobile New Era is coming soon and, the announcement for the same would be announced on August 24, 2020. We have discussed the seven most rumored features that we think would be a part of the PUBG Mobile New Era Update. To be a part of the PUBG Mobile New Era Live Event, all you have to do is switch to the official PUBG Mobile YouTube channel or head over to the official PUBG Mobile Facebook page and join the live stream to witness the new era.
