Miramar desert map - PUBG Mobile

Today’s update for PUBG Mobile adds the Miramar desert map.

The much-anticipated 0.5.0 update for PUBG Mobile is rolling out around the world today, bringing with it the harsh, desert terrain of the Miramar battleground, along with a clutch of new features, in-game content, and technical tweaks.

The addition of the Miramar map is the big-ticket item in the latest update, which also adds several new weapons and vehicles. Also included – in response to player feedback – is a useful new social feature that allows players to create a quick team with nearby friends by entering a 6-digit code.

The game’s sounds are also optimised, with climbing, parachuting, and various other effects all improved.

A newly released dev diary takes players behind the scenes of the new update, with the team at Tencent speaking about the challenges of ‘copying and pasting’ the Miramar map from PC to mobile, and the methods used to ensure the game runs smoothly.

PUBG Mobile is available to download for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
