PUBG Mobile 1.0 is expected to bring notable graphics updates to the popular game. These include improvements to your character model, as well as upgraded in-game graphics and environment. This means you will get better-looking textures all around the game with improved lighting, as well as various elements like particles, smoke, air blasts, muzzle flashes, and scope interactions. The parachute drop is going to be updated and will now see the character rolling on the floor rather than just dropping. There will also be improvements in shading quality and light transmission effects. The new update also brings a new user interface which means that all the menus are once again going to go through an overhaul and players can expect a new interactive lobby as well as improved system animations. Expect Ultra-HD graphics to be enabled with the new update as well. As for the new Erangel map, we are expecting a brand new look with enhanced visuals and various other aesthetic changes.
