PUBG Mobile 1.7 – How to Update, Download, and Play

Jinx!

After a long, long wait, PUBG Mobile 1.7 has arrived, bringing the usual host of new additions, and a few unusual ones as well. In terms of content added, it’s far from the game’s biggest patch to date. But when it comes to the weight of what it offers, it’s a sign of exciting times ahead for the game. A major part of the hype surrounding the new update is the big League of Legends crossover. With the Arcane show on Netflix, specifically. While it’s not the only Battle Royale game out there collaborating with Riot Games at the moment, it does have some unique ideas to offer fans of both franchises.

How to Download PUBG Mobile 1.7

First are foremost, how do you download PUBG Mobile 1.7? That all depends on how you typically update the game. The latest patch is too big to be downloaded in-game. Instead, you need to update the game manually from the App Store for iOS devices, or the Google Play store for Android.

Most players can update the game through the official App Stores of their device’s operating systems. But for those who rely on third-party app stores or even APK sites for their PUBG Mobile downloads, sites like APK Pure or the Galaxy Store on Samsung devices should be your first port of call. If you’d rather avoid those sites, you can download the PUBG Mobile APK straight from the game’s own. Just click this link on the Android device you want to play on and the download will start immediately. So long as you’ve given your device permission to run APKs from unknown sources, you should be able to simply tap to install.

Whichever route you need to take, be sure to do it as soon as possible. You’re actually still able to boot up the game now and play like you normally would. In fact, if you didn’t know a PUBG Mobile update was due, you probably wouldn’t even know. Instead, you’d instinctively close the notice telling you that your game is out of date without reading it, queue for match after match, only realizing something’s wrong as matchmaking queues begin to take longer and longer as others update their games and leave the previous version’s lobbies.

PUBG Mobile 1.7 introduces the Mirror World.

What’s New in PUBG Mobile 1.7?

Mirror World

The biggest part of the PUBG Mobile 1.7 update is the Mirror World. This island now floats above Erangel, serving as proof of two converged universes. You’ll see some nice artwork of it on the log-in screen. If you’re looking to enjoy the PUBG Mobile Arcane crossover, this is where it happens. Drop onto the island to transform into League of Legends characters like Jinx, Vi, Jayce, and Caityln. While transformed, you’ll be able to use some of their signature abilities to battle it out in new and exciting ways.

Carry Feature

Teased and leaked for what feels like a good year at this point, PUBG Mobile 1.7 finally introduces the Carry feature. Now, you’ll be able to hoist up your downed teammates and carry them to a safe location for revival. Now there’s even less of an excuse to leave an ally behind.

Lastly, there’s a brand-new season. Cycle One Season Three. This begins after a brief downtime on November 19 and will last through to December 17. There’s still no word on when Cycle One itself will end, but Season 3 sees the return of outfits from original PUBG Mobile seasons one through four. You can buy these by spending season-exclusive currencies.

Of course, there’s a lot more to PUBG Mobile 1.7 than just the features above. We just homed in on the core additions that most players will want to check out. For the detailed stuff like balance tweaks and bug fixes, check out the PUBG Mobile 1.7 patch notes page we pieced together as well.
