Tencent has removed the servers from PUBG Mobile tonight as they prepare for the release of patch 0.15.0
This new update of PUBG Mobile is scheduled to launch on October 16, which means that today’s maintenance will not end with the release of the new content.
Instead, maintenance is done the day before, which reduces the number of server interruptions later this week. Tencent’s support team warned that tonight’s maintenance will last several hours and will include a large patch.
This means that players will need to have enough free space on their device to accommodate the 0.15.0 update of PUBG Mobile. The download will be significant and will require less than 2 GB on Android and iOS platforms.
A message from Tencent explains: “PUBG MOBILE will be disconnected from 00:00:00 to 07:00:00 (UTC) on October 15, 2019 for maintenance.
Along with all these new features, version 0.15.0 for PUBG Mobile also brings optimized performance with improved graphics and smoothness on lower-end devices. Do note, players who update the game before October 22 will receive Parachute Trail x 1 and 2,000 BP.
