Today, PUBG MOBILE is launching its new Version 2.4 Update, including the game’s first martial arts festival, Martial Showdown! Featuring master martial artist Bruce Lee, players looking for a challenge worthy of a black belt can participate in a range of martial arts-related activities and unlock special items to celebrate. In addition, a revamped Metro Royale mode brings a new map called Misty Port, new weapons and vehicles are brought to the battlegrounds, and Cycle 4 Season 10 and Royale Pass Month 19 bring a host of new cosmetics to unlock and enjoy.
In the Version 2.4 Update, PUBG MOBILE goes for the knockout by introducing Martial Showdown, a festival celebrating martial arts bringing never-before-seen items, events and spaces to explore across Erangel and Livik. Players can use the agile Dancing Lion vehicle, stored in their backpack, to transport themselves and a friend quickly through the battleground, with the ability to both jump and dash. These will however only spawn in the new Martial Arts Arenas, which are dotted around the maps – half of which are open and the other half locked until the end of a countdown. New items include a nifty Grappling Hook to get away from tough situations, and the Bow, a charge-and-release ranged weapon ideal for stealthy play which can deal damage to a wider area with Explosive Bolts as well as regular Bolts!
Players can now set out on fierce revenge missions with the new Back For Honor feature. After being recalled from elimination by a teammate, players can hunt down the enemy that eliminated them within the time limit. Rewards go to the revenge seeker if successful, or the target if they manage to evade elimination themselves.
Blessing Kites and Lanterns, which will drop crates when destroyed, are scattered around urban areas and above the Martial Arts Arenas. Also, the new Kung Fu Steamed Bun consumable can restore Health and Energy.!
Revealed earlier this week, PUBG MOBILE will be bringing Bruce Lee, the international icon, to the Version 2.4 Update in partnership with The Bruce Lee Family Company. Beginning January 10th, the Bruce Lee Kung Fu Soul Set, Melee Expert Set and Mr. Kung Fu Set will be available to provide players with different iconic looks of the martial arts master. A number of cosmetic skins for vehicles, parachutes and more are also available, as well as Bruce Lee-themed emotes.
Finally, players can participate in the Dreamrealm Apprentice event from January 10th until January 26th to gain access to exclusive rewards by following Bruce Lee through a series of challenging trials.
PUBG MOBILE’s Version 2.4 Update also brings big updates to firearms and vehicles. As of today, the new AAC Honey Badger firearm will be available in Erangel, Sanhok and Livik, with 7.62mm rounds and a high-firing rate, making it perfect for close-quarters combat! Additionally, the FAMAS will be made available in Erangel, while the QBZ, SMG and Motorcycle Ride mechanics have been improved.Finally, 2-Seat Bikes are now available to ride around with friends from Bicycle Sheds, which are now available in Miramar and Livik as well as Erangel.
