Livik, which is the latest map available in PUBG Mobile, has also been updated with visual and gameplay enhancements. An all-new semi-automatic shotgun has been added, which can be loaded up to 7 rounds with the ability to manually reload ammo for emergency situations.
There are some new EvoGround additions as well. Payload 2.0, which is coming soon, will bring fully armed vehicles, new armed vehicles, heavy weaponry including AT4-A laser-guided missile and M202 four-barreled rocket launcher, and more.
To provide a more immersive gaming experience to players, PUBG Mobile 1.0 brings improved support for 90Hz displays, along with graphics quality upgrades. Some of the other changes included with the update include improvements to class combat animations, combat improvements, and security improvements.
