PUBG Corp have a lot in store for PUBG Mobile, starting with an extensive update aptly named 1.0, as well as PUBG Mobile Global Championship with a prize pool of US$2 million.

PUBG Mobile has been incredibly successful so it's no wonder PUBG Corp are giving it a huge refresh on September 8, 2020.

The studio promises a complete overhaul - new UX, new gameplay features and a bunch of additional tech to make the gameplay as smooth as possible. 

Compared to 0.10, version 1.0 of PUBG Mobile will churn out up to 30 per cent higher FPS on middle and low-end hardware models, with the average being 20 per cent. At the same time, the dev reduced lag by up to 75 per cent, with an average of 65 per cent. 

"Improvements have been made to players’ characters, including Main Lobby lights and environments, as well its iconic environments. Particles, smoke, air blasts, muzzle flashes, and the addition of scope interaction make every shot more realistic. Parachuting, sprinting, throwing and other key actions have also been optimized for the most captivating battle royale experience", the studio wrote. 

Lighting systems and texture quality will be getting a level of polish as well, and the same goes for models. Additionally, PUBG Corp stressed this is not the end of development, but rather the start of a new era.

As a perfect statement of intent, PUBG Corp announced the PUBG Mobile Global Championship for late November, with a prize pool being US$2 million. It will basically fuse the World League and Championship into a single competition, as the two garnered enough interest to warrant a bigger competition.
