For casual fans of PUBG Mobile, update 0.14.5 doesn't offer much. While the cosmetic additions are welcome and offer a sense of progression, there's nothing here by way of new maps, guns or experiences. Simply put, unless you're heavily invested in paying for passes and ranking up, there's almost no reason to consider hopping back into PUBG Mobileto see what the new patch is about.

With that in mind, fans should look toward the launch of update 0.15.0 for more significant changes. All other versions of PUBG recently got the Erangel Remastered map over the past few weeks, so we imagine mobile is the next platform to enjoy the changes. Its visual trapping may not be as stunning as other builds, but we imagine portions of the map's layout will be tweaked to better support modern gameplay strategies.

PUBG Mobile is available now on Android and iOS. The 0.14.5 update should be live in all regions.
