Tencent has confirmed the release date and content for the next patch of PUBG Mobile, due to hit part way through the very end of the PUBG Global Championship 2022. The PUBG Mobile 2.4 update is going to be live everywhere by January 6th, we’ve already had confirmation of the release date along with a lot of what’s coming in the new drop.
This is a pretty big new update, adding a whole new map and a new batch of themed content that players can get through with martial arts.
PUBG Mobile 2.4 Update
The PUBG Mobile 2.4 is a big one. It includes some really fun new items, new maps, and new features where players can come back from the dead. Some of this could prove pretty useful in rising up the PUBG Mobile ranks if you properly utilize it. These are some of the big new features.
Back for Honour
This is a brand-new feature that’s been added in with PUBG Mobile 2.4 update. It’s a fun feature that lets players return to a game even after they’ve been eliminated. Back for Honor is going to mean players that got killed in the game are able to slip back in and challenge the guy that killed them to a revenge game. This can potentially get them back into the game.
Metro Royale Map – Misty Port
This is getting a new map Misty Port. The preview image looks like it’s based around a port, but with some more open areas and new features dotted around too. There will also be ziplines and stairs added, new NPC enemies, and sellable items available on the new map exclusively.
This looks like a really fun mobility item. You’re able to use it to grapple up to different spots on the map. It makes it much easier for players to grab the high ground in fights and turn the tide with new tactics.
Martial Arts Showdown & Bruce Lee
This is a whole new batch of content coming with the PUBG 2.4 update. This is going to be a new area based around martial arts. It’s going to have a few different arenas where players can fight it out with different martial arts.
This is all to celebrate the newest crossover to hit PUBG, Bruce Lee. He’s arriving as a skin in the game with this update alongside other themed outfits and in-game items to show off your fighting skills.
The Explosive Bow looks like it’s going to work similarly to the explosive bow in Fortnite. A weapon with arrows for ammo which you can use to set off explosions where they land, be it in enemies or the terrain. Great for dealing damage around the environment and taking out players.
Dancing Lion Vehicle
This is a new vehicle which is going to be able to be stored in a backpack. How exactly that works for the game’s in-world logic isn’t clear, but it’s a fun addition to the game.
When Does PUBG Mobile 2.4 Update Drop?
The new update is due to hit the game on January 6th. Although, fans can expect the usual gradual rollout to start the day before, beginning January 4th across various regions until it’s out in full on January 6th. This new content is all coming into play as we hit the final stage of the PUBG Mobile Championship 2022, one of the biggest PUBG tournaments. The event will be concluding over the weekend, finishing up on January 8th. Even outside of esports though, there’s plenty to keep all players occupied in PUBG Mobile at the moment.
