The Battle Royale title, PUBG Mobile, has established itself as one of the leading names in the mobile gaming market, uplifting the PUBG brand globally. The developers, Krafton Inc. and Tencent Games work in tandem to provide the best experience for their users.
They introduce updates at periodic intervals to enhance the BR experience of players. Since these updates bring in several new features, modes, events, and items, they create great hype amongst players who eagerly wait to enjoy the new additions to the battlegrounds.
The 1.9 update is the second major update of the year and is scheduled to bring the Fourth Anniversary Mode, celebrating the game's success over the last four years.
After a month of BETA testing, which witnessed testers finding errors to eradicate them before the release, the developers gave a green signal to the update.
