The next update for PUBG Mobile is almost here! 0.19.0 patch will go live on July 7, bringing with it a huge array of new modes and features. In this article, we would list out everything you need to know about the update.

1 – Maintenance Time and Update Size

Usually, before pushing out the new update, PUBG Mobile’s dev team would take down the game for maintenance for a few hours. However, this will not be the case this time. This is a big update – it is going to be pushed straight through the Google Play Store and App Store.
