PUBG Mobile 0.5.0 Update Brings About Major Changes Alongside a New Map - Patch Notes

by Mike Kent


The mobile port of PLAYERUNKNOWN’s BattleGrounds title has been a roaring success across the globe since launching in March 2018.

The battle royale game operates in an almost identical fashion to its PC and Xbox counterparts when played on a high end smartphone.


There is of course a couple of noticable differences due to the controls, with improved auto-aim and a higher tendency to shoot from the hip rather than scoping in.

For the two months since release the game has received a number of updates, but arguably the biggest has now dropped on May 15th, signalling the start of Season Two.


Update 0.5.0 has added a new map, with the desert themed Miramar now available to play for mobile users.

The map has already been thoroughly used on PC and Xbox, but this marks the first opportunity for those using handheld devices to get stuck into the dusty western themed environment.


The PUBG Mobile Twitter released this video as a teaser of what players can expect.


Alongside the new maps, the update has also signalled the start of season two, progress missions, secret stash, local quick teams and a new region system.

When launching PUBG on your device, you’ll be advised that it’s not compulsory, but you’ll be unable to play any on the new patch.


The download is approximately 1.2GB but will need about 3.6 of free space to run the update. You have to go to the App store in order to download the changes.

If you update before the 23rd of May, you’ll receive 2x EXP Card, 1-Day, 2x BP Cardm 1-day, Outfit Box III (7d) and 1,888 BP.
