PUBG Mobile 1.8 is now available to all users worldwide. It is expected to deliver a significantly better overall gaming experience with new content and improvements to current features. Although Spider-Man-themed mode has caught the player’s attention, the Aftermath also brings unique elements.
Users will eventually have to update the game since users on different versions cannot invite each other. As a result, gamers can update their game before January 18, 2022, to become eligible for additional rewards BP, AG, and a helmet.
Android users can download the update through their respective stores or the APK file.
