PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile (PUBG) is an online multiplayer battle royale (BR) game developed and published by PUBG Corporation and Krafton Game Union, a subsidiary of South Korean video game company Bluehole. Post its launch in 2018, the game quickly became a rage among the gaming community due to its engaging and realistic gameplay.
PUBG Mobile has also helped the Indian E-Sports community to grow and showcase on the global competitive dashboards. Competitive players from India like Mortal, ScoutOP, Jonathan, Mavi, etc. have already represented India in several international competitions. Today, PUBGM is the #01 mobile game in the world on both Android and iOS.
The new update in PUBGM brings a host of new gameplay and safety features to enhance the overall BR gaming experience.
In Hundred Rhythms, the players will be able to attend a virtual EDM festival cum battle square with a Music Armband that comes with three unique skills/ power-set.
The new version also brings a brand new bolt action rifle called ‘Mosin-Nagant’ to the main BR gameplay, exclusive to two of its maps- Erangel and Vikendi.
The new gameplay features also include the introduction of a flying vehicle called ‘Motor Glider’ in the Erangel map, Clown Tricks gameplay mode (to be added on March 31st), Metro Royale 2, and several performance improvements.
As it happens after every patch update, PUBG Mobile Royale Pass Season 18 will kick off on March 17.
The update is not officially downloadable for Indian users as PUBG Mobile Global is still banned in India. PUBG Mobile Global was banned among 118 Chinese apps by MEITY back in September 2018.
Since then, there has been a constant stir in the emerging Indian gaming and E-Sports community. Reportedly, its parent company Krafton Game Union is continuously trying to get the game unbanned and is in constant touch with the Indian government regarding the same.
However, in the meantime, the game is allowed to be played via PUBG Mobile Korean version via third-party downloads on both Android and iOS for common users.
