The PUBG Mobile 0.19.0 update will arrive on July 7, the company announced via its Twitter name. It will bring the recently named Livik card which is currently in the beta version of the game. The Twitter posting doesn’t share more details on what we can expect from the 0.19.0 update. However, from previous teasers, we know a few details about Livik itself, which is the first PUBG Mobile exclusive card to date. We still don’t know if the long-awaited Erangel 2.0 card will make its way to the game with the 0.19.0 update.
PUBG Mobile shared the post on Twitter from his official account stating that the 0.19.0 update will arrive on July 7. He adds that the new card called Livik will be introduced in the regular version of the game with this update. This is the only information given by the team, but we can expect more in the coming days as we approach the date of July. Livik is currently available for players to check in the beta version of PUBG Mobile as a “Secretmap”. It is the only card exclusive to PUBG Mobile because the other cards first made their way to the PC and the console.
Livik is two kilometers by two kilometers in size and will bring fast matches with up to 40 players in a match. Each match will last approximately 15 minutes. The new map contains new areas like a hot spring, a volcano and a waterfall, among other points of interest. Game producer Rick Li said, “The stunts around the map will offer unique player interactions that aren’t available on other maps.”
The new card will add two new weapons as well: the P90 submachine gun and the MK12 exploded sniper rifle.
Speaking of Erangel 2.0, the latest update from the development team was that they were bringing it a few finishing touches and that it would be released in the second half of this year. For the moment, there is no clear date for the launch of Erangel 2.0 and it seems unlikely that it will be part of the 0.19.0 update of July 7.
