HIGHLIGHTS

PUBG Mobile will start receiving the v0.13.5 update today

The update will bring a new weapon, season update and Royale Pass

Players will need to have the same version of the game in order to invite their friends to a match

PUBG Mobile will be updated to version 0.13.5 today. The developers made the announcement on social media, and gamers should see a notification for the same when booting up the game. The update is said to require at least 181MB of storage space on iOS and 158MB on Android. The developers note that those with different versions of the game will not be able to invite each other, so players are advised to update the game at the earliest. Another incentive to update the game quickly is in the form of ‘Parachute Trail*1’ and 1,888BP. However, these rewards will only be available to those who update the game between July 16 and 22. 

New weapon

One of the most notable additions to the game is the introduction of a new weapon, the PP-19 Bizon. This is the fifth submachine gun added to the game and it uses 9mm rounds. The weapon will be available on Erangel and Vikendi, and features a 53-round magazine. However, it does not support magazine upgrades. In fact, the weapon only support muzzle and scopes (up to 6x) .

The game notes that the gun has a single shot damage of 35, and a fire-rate close to that of the UMP. Thanks to its large magazine, the weapon can be pretty handy early in the game, but the lack of upgrades means that its usefulness may go down later in the match.

New Season

The update also brings with it Season 8. The most notable of the new additions is a new season interface. The classic mode results screen has also been adjusted. Another feature that has been adjusted is the Season 8 rewards screen. The entire Season 8 outfit will now be available at Gold tier. Reaching Diamond tier will give players access to Season-exclusive weapon finishes. 

Tier rewards have also been adjusted such that players who reach Crown or above will get a special team-joining effect and name tags. Reaching Ace or above will result in a permanent season title. Other changes include new tier transfer rules. Players below Gold are transferred as-is to the next season.  

Royale Pass

With a new season somes a new Royale Pass. This time around, it seems to be ocean/summer-themed where players will discover “some long lost treasures in the ocean.” It also brings players the option to ask friends for Elite Pass or Elite Pass Plus. Further, the game is celebrating the first anniversary of Royale Pass, and is launching some Season 2 and Season 3 events again. This will allow players to get their hands on some of these rare items. 

Other changes include the addition of Third Person Perspective to team Deathmatch Room mode. There are also new ‘Rating Protection’ cards that are available in ‘duration’ and ‘uses’ varinants. These will take effect when ratings change and no ratings will be deducted when the card is active. 

PUBG Mobile also gets a new High Frame Rate option to HDR mode. This will be available for some high-end devices only, and can be accessed via the Graphics option in Settings. However, users are warned that turning this on will result in higher battery drain.

The iOS version of the game gets a background download and update feature. This means that when iOS players are downloading a new patch, the app can be sent to the background. Further, PMCO themed events will be added in “late July.” After completing the missions, players will be able to listen to the new PMCO song by Alan Walker and will also get the PMCO theme for the main menu.

Besides this, the game also recieves a bunch of fixes and improvements. You can check out the entire patch notes about PUBG Mobile v0.13.5 here
