Krafton and Tencent Games took to the official Discord server of PUBG Mobile a few hours ago to announce the release date of the new 2.1 update. The update will be rolled out on devices globally on July 13 at 9:30 am UTC (Google Play Store) and 6:30 am (Apple Store). However, unlike in the past, the July update will not require the servers to be taken offline.
PUBG Mobile is one of the most popular Battle Royale titles across the world. Since its initial release four years back, the developers have regularly overhauled and enhanced the title to keep the BR experience interesting.
When will the new 2.1 update be released for PUBG Mobile?
Following the booming success of the 2.0 update, the developers are set to release version 2.1. Since the Ancient Secret mode is returning to the game, the buzz regarding the title's upcoming features is massive.
Players will need to keep sufficient free space on their devices so that the new content works smoothly. They should either have adequate mobile data or connect their device to a Wi-Fi network to download it without hassle.
Due to the game's existing restriction of not allowing users with different versions to play together, users will need to ensure their friends have the 2.1 update downloaded as well.
Time and date of 2.1 update's release in different regions across the globe
The release dates for the upcoming update are as follows:
- Vietnam: July 11, 16:30
- Iran, Malaysia, Pakistan, and Turkey: July 12, 7:00 (partly)
- Taiwan: July 12, 15:00 (Google Play Store) and 8:30 (Apple Store)
- Korea and Japan: July 12, 7:30
Although version 2.1 will be globally released on July 13, the new season, Cycle 3 Season 7, will be integrated along with Month 13 RP on July 19.
