PUBG Mobile 1.0 Full Launch Release Date Revealed

by in PUBG Mobile | Aug, 26th 2020

Tencent and the PUBG Corporation have revealed that PUBG Mobile will be entering a new era soon. The popular mobile battle royale game will soon get its full launch as the PUBG Mobile 1.0 release date was just revealed this week, along with a ton of changes and improvements.

PUBG Mobile 1.0 Release Date Revealed

PUBG Mobile originally came out on mobile devices, both Android and iOS, back in 2018. With about two years under its belt, it is finally time for the PUBG Mobile 1.0 release date. The game will no longer be in the beta phase any longer and be considered a full game.

This is something that Fortnite did recently after being out on mobile devices and other platforms for even longer. However, it is still surprising that it took this long for the mobile version of PUBG to finally reach the highly coveted (for battle royale games) 1.0 mark.

This reveal (via Dot Esports) shows that the PUBG Mobile 1.0 release date will bring with it some major changes and improvements that we only know some of at this time. The release date is rather soon, so we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out what is in this new patch.

The PUBG Mobile 1.0 release date is Sept. 8, so less than two weeks from right now. It is set to be the largest update that the game has ever seen on Android and iOS devices since it first came out in 2018, so we can expect some massive changes and additions then.

Graphical Changes in 1.0

Unfortunately, we only know some general details about what to expect from this upcoming mobile battle royale game’s upcoming full launch. What we do know is that the general look of the game is set to change in some way, with significant overhauls of several visual systems.

The graphics should overall improve, with major improvements to the general textures, particles, smoke, and more. The lighting system and water will look a lot better than it did before, and you’ll be able to see better reflections and other visual changes that should elevate the game.

When it comes to performance, that should change with the 1.0 full launch experience as there will be improvements to how the game runs on both Android and iOS. Despite the massive graphical overhauls, the game will run much better than it currently is.

There should be an average of a 20% improvement in the frame rate per second with the new update, which is a substantial change for a game like this that hasn’t always performed the best. In addition, the overall server lag that players deal should go down by around 65% for most players on average.

Installation and Lobby Changes Detailed

All of this will add a ton to the overall game and experience, but it should help with the install size of the game rather than make it much worse. Currently, the game is around 4GB in total when it comes to the space it takes up, but it should be smaller with this update; exact numbers haven’t been revealed.

Another change to how the game looks visually will be to the character changes. Players will now have better movement animations overall, including when parachuting, sprinting, throwing, etc. These changes should make the animations a lot more fluid and natural.

When it comes to the outside of the battle royale matches, though, there should be some major changes visually to the lobby, and general user interface for PUBG Mobile when the 1.0 update drops next month. When you are in the lobby with your friends getting ready for a match, it should look better there, too.

You will find that the battle royale lobby will have better textures, visual quality, lighting, and more. This should add some polish to how it looks before you jump into battle and make a good place to chill with your pals in between the competition.

UI Improvements and Mysterious Surprise

Also, outside of the battle royale matches, you should find that the user interface will look completely different. The UI is getting revamped entirely and will have a new multiscreen switching mode. How this will work is that players will only have three screens in total that they will have to deal with.

The first one is the social screen that has to do with the various community aspects of PUBG Mobile, like adding friends, likely the leaderboard, etc. You will then easily switch between the different screens, including the second one, that is the game screen.

Here, players will, well, find the place to actually queue into matches and join a lobby with your pals online. And lastly, there is the store screen that you will be able to switch to. This is where you will find the in-game store’s snazzier-looking version where you can buy all of the latest cosmetics, skins, and more.

Finally, there is one last change coming in the PUBG Mobile 1.0 release that we know about currently. It is a “mysterious surprise” that is kept secret until it comes out. However, we have a hunch that it is likely the long-awaited release of Erangel 2.0 that was promised a long time ago at this point.

That would certainly be a great way to usher in the full launch of PUBG Mobile. Players will find out soon as the 1.0 update will drop on Android and iOS devices on Sept. 8.
