What can you expect from update 1.18.0?

ALL-NEW BATTLE: Plenty of new opportunities will open up

But what will the new update bring to the game?

Miramar 2.0

Tencent Games have posted a video trailer giving us a lot of information to chew on.


Changes are coming to Miramar. The desert map is getting a race course added, as well as new features and extra buildings to find cover in.

Vending machines are also arriving in Miramar. These will give out energy drinks or painkillers so finding one will be a big boost to your chances.

Golden Mirado

If you really want to enjoy Mirmar 2.0 in style you'll want to find the Golden Mirado.

Only one spawns in each game, so you'll have to be smart to find it.

While we don’t have official confirmation on a spawn location, we can make an educated guess.

In PUBG, the Golden Mirado can only spawn in the garage of Hacienda del Patron near San Martin. There’s a strong possibility this carries over to PUBG Mobile.


New game modes

The beta for update 0.18.0 showed off some exciting new changes beyond just the Miramar 2.0 map.

New game modes are coming in like Saftey Scramble aka bluehole mode.

BLUE NO GO: You'll need to get into the blue circle, but not be too early

This game mode is designed to prevent players from camping within the upcoming safe zone.

By showing the upcoming zone but blueing it out, it will prevent players from getting lucky with their drop and camping to prevent others from gaining the safe zone.


This mode will be available in Erangel.

Update 0.18.0 patch notes

The patch notes are here and they are extensive!

Along with the new game modes come a lot of improvements and bug fixes, as well as a new currency.

AG currency

You can earn AG much like other currencies, by completing achievements, and taking on missions daily, weekly, and monthly.


Missions that earn AG are going to be a little tougher than normal, so be prepared to get to work if you want to earn a lot of it.

An AG translates to roughly .14 UC (which means 7 AG is about 1 UC).

That means the basic Royale Pass costs roughly 4,200 AG (600 UC), and the Elite Royale Pass costs roughly 12,600 AG (1800 UC).

Season 13 start date

Season 13 of PUBG Mobile should start on 13 May.

The Season 12 Royale Pass is set to expire on 12 May, so be sure to finish it off if you haven't already! The new theme, Toy Playground, is set to bring a lot of cool rewards like skins and content to the game as a whole.
