PUBG Season 5 will bring updates to Miramar and introduce the Badlands Survivor Pass.

PUBG Corporation has detailed the next wave of content for battle-royale phenomenon, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The new season begins with Update 5.1, which updates Miramar with new loot, terrain and map objects. The Win94 also becomes a Miramar-exclusive weapon and comes automatically equipped with an irremovable 2.7x scope.

Players will also be able to use a new item-throwing mechanic in various situations, such as flinging an energy drink to a teammate or earning that chicken dinner with an expertly tossed frying pan.


The next Survivor Pass – titled Badlands – will add new missions and rewards, including outfit and weapon skins based on the desert environment. Those that are interested in the history of Miramar can also unlock parts of the Season 5 story trailer during gameplay.

Take a look at what’s in store in the PUBG Season 5 gameplay trailer.

PUBG update 5.1 will be released on PC on October 23, 2019. It will arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One a week later on October 29, 2019. If you want to get stuck in right away, the PC Test Server is open now.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
