As with all updates to PUBG Mobile, it should be noted that it may take time for your iOS or Android device to receive the sizable download. During that period, you may have trouble squading up with friends or getting into matches. However, provided Tencent has made good on its promise to conclude deployment by 11 p.m. EST on Thursday, everyone in all regions should have this new content at the time of publish.

It should also be noted that, alongside this update, the start date and time for Season 5 of competitive play has been formally announced as well. Season 5 begins January 18 at 9 p.m. EST. At that time, players will be given access to the latest Royale Pass and leaderboards will be fully reset. In other words, while PUBG Mobile update 0.10.5 is a bit light on proper content, it offers the prospect of much more throughout the duration of the season.

The changes themselves, while appreciated, aren't exactly revolutionary. The Mk47 Mutant is a great gun, but it's bit puzzling as to why it took so long to arrive on mobile. The ability to remove annoying lobby-entrance messages and to use classic chat options is also a plus, but that won't alter much with regard to gameplay. January has been a pretty quiet month for all of PUBG thus far, so it's no surprise the latest mobile incarnation feels a bit barebones.

PUBG Mobile is available now on Android and iOS. Update 0.10.5 should be live right now as an in-game patch.
