PUBG Mobile developers at Tencent have dropped the latest tease for the games upcoming new 0.7 update with a brand new trailer released earlier today.
The next big update for the mobile game on iOS and Android is expected to be built around a new ‘war’ mode, which Gadgets360 describe as the PUBG equivalent of team deathmatch.
Late last night and well into the wee hours this morning the game was offline for “regular server maintenance” according to a message posted to the games Discord server.
The full message from the team reads:
“This is a regular server maintenance, which doesn’t mean that the update is coming with the maintenance. Please be aware. Thank you. “
In addition, the same message also added: “Any future updates will be conveyed to you. Keep an eye on this channel”
Despite this, a large portion of the games player base and a few other sites, such as Daily Express, has suggested that the update could be coming later this week.
It’s worth noting though that for the time being, there is no official release date for the games 0.7 update.
And as mentioned above, today’s update was purely for maintenance and not linked to rolling out the games highly anticipated next update.
For those wanting to know more, you’re going to have to wait for an official announcement from Tencent as to when they plan to roll out the features and war mode, but for the time being, it will remain in Beta.
If you want to join in with the beta, it has been made public for Testing Purposes, so follow the two links below to help out and play some new features before they go live:

Based on past in-game updates, we suspect that Android users will get the update first with iOS users possibly having to wait slightly longer for the update to drop into the apple store (as they have done previously).
Likewise, whilst in beta there are no extensive or official patch notes to for the games upcoming major update.
That being said, we have a few hints at what could be included based on the games PUBG Mobile Beta Patch Notes, which you can see below:
- Arcade Mode – War – A new, faster-paced variation of Arcade mode.
- New Weapon – Added the SLR Sniper Rifle.
- Portable Closet – Players can now put outfits in their Portable Closets and instantly change clothes during combat.
