PUBG Mobile update brings a new desert map and more

Adjust Comment Print

It seems that the new map does not support PUBG Mobile's Arcade mode, though that could change in a future update.

- Desert map ("Miramar") is now available for selection. This could mean 50+, 25+ and even lower if you so choose. The majority of "PUBG Mobile's" revenue so far (about 48%) comes from the U.S. Rounding out the remainder of its top five countries for revenue are Thailand (7%), Great Britain (5%), Canada (4%), and Russian Federation (3%).

- New Progress Mission: collect progress rewards when you reach new levels, then take on new missions.

The idea with Missions and assignments is you can earn goodies instead of spending hundreds of dollars on skins like we see in Fortnite. They have apparently helped to drastically increase the company's headset sales due to team-based gameplay and requirements to be coordinated during games.

That said, some people don't want to complete missions, or want to spend a few dollars and get stuff right away.

With the omnipresent rise of Fortnite, giving such a hardy update to PUBG Mobile is as much a move of developer care as it is of necessity.

Elsewhere, PUBG Mobile also has a shop doing the rounds, which allows players to fork out for cosmetic goodies and something called 'Secret Stash, ' which dishes out various special items on the cheap. You can head over to Reddit for a full list and changelog. In-game sounds, vaulting, parachuting, and effects have all been optimized as well. That's a big one, and something a lot of players continue to complain about.
