Speaking of the new features, users are looking forward to the new Spider-Man game mode that the update will introduce. Mobile players can enjoy this mode in Erangel and Livik.
As mentioned on the website, the release time of PUBG Mobile 1.8 APK is expected to be around 11:00 (UTC +0), i.e. 4.30 PM IST.
Updates will arrive gradually, and it is not guaranteed that every player will be able to download the update at the same time. It depends on the type of phone used.
One of the best aspects is that the servers will not be removed for the update to arrive. The APK file will be released shortly after the update arrives.
Interested players can head over to the official website to download it to their Android devices.
