After a few little teases and leaks in the latest beta build, PUBG Mobile 0.14.5 has arrived alongside Season 9 as anticipated. This means PUBG Mobile Season 9 has officially started as of September 12, 2019.
But what’s new in PUBG Mobile 0.14.5 other than the dizzying amount of new costumes and get-ups we’re to expect with the latest season? Not much, it seems. Sorry, PUBG Mobile fans!
How to Update to PUBG Mobile 0.14.5
According to the in-game notice, updating PUBG Mobile to version 0.14.5 before September 18 will net you a free parachute trail to customize your character with. The size of the update is around 200MB and needs to be downloaded through the Google Play Store or iOS App Store.
If you’re not prompted to update from there, just fire up the game. You should then be met with a download notice. The game will then download and update itself in-app.
You won’t be able to invite or join players on mismatched game versions, so if you’re into squads, you’re probably don’t need that free parachute trail to convince you to get that relatively small download over and done with.
What’s In PUBG Mobile 0.14.5 and Season 9?
Whether it’s actually true or not, the PUBG Mobile Twitter account is touting Season 9 as “one of our best Royale Pass seasons yet”. As noticed by those in the early beta, we’re dropping the nautical theme of Season 8 in favor of the “Warriors, Unite!” tagline. There’s plenty of armor inspired by feudal Japan.
With a big focus on bladed weapons at the time, prepare to see, and probably die to, more swords than you’re used to. Skins stuffed with dragon motifs will never not look cool to Westerners despite the historical baggage they come with.
And that’s about all there is for PUBG Mobile 0.14.5. That we’ve been made aware of, at least. We usually expect minor balance adjustments with each patch, but community manager Ocho teased fans on Reddit that while these kinds of changes are typically reserved for the non-incremental patch numbers (the .0 updates), something big is in the works for patch 0.15.0 – whenever that might land.
PUBG Mobile 0.14.5 Changelog & Patch Notes
During the beta period for this patch, he let players know that no official changelog was available at the time of writing due to those in-charge of the information being on vacation at the time. Hopefully we’re not missing out on much by not knowing the finer details of the patch.
Not long after Ocho teased what could come in PUBG Mobile 0.15.0, the official Twitter account – which is manned by Ocho – revealed the big news – Payload mode. This new Arcade Mode will play a big part of the update. The image depicts a RPG rocket launcher weapon being fired off toward the distant building with the comment promising a good time “if you like making things go boom”.
A recent update to the Chinese version of PUBG Mobile introduced RPGs and even helicopters, so the acknowledgment of this by the wider PUBG Mobile twitter account is an obvious sign of things to come. Expect it to be the one to bring the new TDM map over, too
As we’ve done with past seasons, expect weekly Royale Pass mission guides on Fanbyte as new missions go live.
