What’s New In Update 1.6?

Update 1.6 looks to be one of the most interesting updates yet, as aliens have officially landed and a total of seven game modes are set to return.

Flora Menace is now live in PUBG Mobile‘s latest update and requires players to save the Cell Matrix, a giant spaceship that carries everyone’s hopes of escape after Erangel was invaded by alien plants called Yarilo.

In this new mode, players must go to the Cell Matrix and conduct investigations, reclaim the energy, and experience intense battles with random weapon drops and respawns.

As well as a brand new mode for players to discover, there will also be plenty of fan-favorite maps and modes returning. More details can be found in the patch notes below.

Below you will find the official patch notes for the 1.6 PUBG Mobile update deployed on September 14. These notes were taken from the official PUBG Mobile Twitter account.

New Mode: Flora Menace

Erangel has been invaded by alien plants known as Yarilo. After absorbing special energy, the Yarilo quickly took over the major core urban areas and created the Rejuvenation Barrier, which has healing powers. The Cell Matrix, a giant spaceship that carries everyone’s hopes of escape, has gone out of control because of the invasion. Go to the Cell Matrix to conduct investigations, reclaim the energy, and experience awesome battles with random weapon drops and respawns. Call DynaHex Supplies to keep you well-supplied in battle.
