A few days back, developers unveiled the release date of the new version of PUBG Mobile, i.e., the 2.4 patch. Players can expect the new update to arrive on January 6, 2023. That said, the devs will unveil the exact release time and rollout schedule for different versions and servers in a few days.

The next version is titled Warrior Trial and is expected to bring plenty of new additions and optimizations to the game, which players might be able to learn about via the early patch notes.

However, two primary features – a game mode and a Metro Royale map – have been confirmed by PUBG Mobile devs.

After the launch of the new version, i.e., Warrior Trial update, fans will see two additions in the form of a brand new Metro Royale map and a fresh themed mode. Interestingly, both of the following features were also part of the 2.4 beta update:

  • New time-limited in-game area/mode named Martial Arts Arena.
  • A new Metro Royale map.

Details around the Martial Arts Arena or any similar multiplayer game mode are unknown at the moment.

On the other hand, the 2.4 beta version has already revealed the introduction of NPC enemies, bosses, zip lines, stairs, sellable items (Biological Sample, Processor (GPU), Lens, and Gold Piles), and various other upgrades in Metro Royale.

However, players will learn discrete information about the forthcoming version after downloading the PUBG Mobile 2.4 patch via Google Play, App Store, or the official website (only for Android users).
