PUBG Mobile is set to receive its 1.6 update tomorrow (September 14), but here’s everything you can expect to change with the new update. While the team has yet to divulge the nitty-gritty such as individual bug fixes, they have revealed the big changes you can expect with tomorrow’s update. You can also expect it to be around 690MB on Android, while being 1.6GB on iOS. It’s unclear exactly as to why there’s such a huge discrepancy in file sizes, but if we learn more, we’ll let you know. In the meantime, here’s everything coming with PUBG Mobile update 1.6!
PUBG Mobile Update 1.6 Patch Notes
New Mode: Flora Menace
Erangel has been invaded by alien plants known as Yarilo. After absorbing special energy, the Yarilo quickly took over the major core urban areas and created the Rejuvenation Barrier, which has healing powers.
The Cell Matrix, a giant spaceship that carries everyone’s hopes of escape, has gone out of control because of the invasion.
Go to the Cell Matrix to conduct investigations, reclaim the energy, and experience awesome battles with random weapon drops and respawns. Call DynaHex Supplies to keep you well-supplied in battle.
