The PUBG Mobile 1.5 update was teased, speculated, and eagerly awaited before it was finally rolled out a few days ago on July 9th, 2021. Mission Ignition was accompanied by a lot of changes to Erangel, Tesla vehicle skins and a brand new weapon just for the event.
This update promised a lot of changes and adjustments just like other updates. However, the Tesla x PUBG Mobile collaboration sparked the most excitement in the PUBG community.
Here's what Elon Musk had to say about the Tesla x PUBG Mobile collab
Right after the update was made available globally, fans had been expecting some reaction from Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk.
Earlier today, Elon Musk took to Twitter to share his reaction to the official Tesla x PUBG Mobile trailer and one-word caption. The 48-second video clip depicts the latest Tesla-elements added to the game.
The clip looks like an action-packed trailer for Tesla Cybertruck and Model Y. As seen in the above clip, the Model Y can be put on self-driving mode which allows players to shoot.
The in-game character then goes on to ambush some robotic opponents. Both the cars are seen racing towards what looks like a giant bomb.
The Twitter post by Elon Musk has already crossed a million views and has been retweeted thousands of times. PUBG Mobile has also retweeted Elon Musk's tweet, which crossed millions of views.
