On July 12th, 2023, PUBG MOBILE, the globally popular mobile game, is set to launch a groundbreaking collaboration with Dragon Ball Super on Thursday. The highly anticipated Version 2.7 Update will introduce unique Dragon Ball Super modes, items, vehicles, areas, and more, marking one of the most significant partnerships in the history of PUBG MOBILE.

Dragon Ball Super-Themed Mode

Starting July 13th until September 4th, players can experience the first of two revolutionary Dragon Ball Super modes integrated into the game. This mode combines Dragon Ball elements with the classic PUBG MOBILE battle royale gameplay. By collecting seven Dragon Balls, players can summon Shenron at the Shenron Summoning Altar to make powerful in-game wishes. Additionally, four new Dragon Ball Super areas—Dragon Ball Village, Tenkaichi Budokai, Kame House, and Karin Tower—have been faithfully recreated in Erangel, Livik, and Sanhok maps.

Players can also utilize the new Hoipoi Capsule, which can transform into the three-seater Air Car for efficient traversal across the battlegrounds. The update introduces a “Ki” component, allowing players to gather energy to enhance mobility, execute the legendary Kamehameha beam, and use the Buku-jutsu (Levitation technique) for swift aerial movement. Scattered Senzu Beans can replenish Ki, health, and energy. Moreover, a hidden Dragon Ball Trial challenges players to search for the Dragon Balls while remaining visible to other teams, ultimately defending the Sheron Summoning Altar and making their wish to secure victory.

Battle Royale

Dragon Ball Super The second Dragon Ball Super mode, available from July 15th until September 4th, introduces a never-before-seen gameplay makeover in PUBG MOBILE. The battlegrounds are transformed into a stylistic animated art-style world, and players abandon traditional weaponry to become one of five Dragon Ball Super characters—Son Goku, Vegeta, Frieza, Piccolo, and Ultimate Gohan. Each character possesses unique main and support moves, and players must utilize their abilities strategically to be the last one standing. Spirit Crystlets and Spirit Crystals collected from the ground restore energy and upgrade moves, with the highest level being Level 4. Players can also make use of new features like Teleport Points and Updraft to navigate and manipulate the map.

Vincent Wang, Head of PUBG MOBILE Publishing at Tencent Games, expressed excitement about the collaboration and said “One of the world’s most iconic Japanese manga and anime franchises, Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Super has achieved something truly exceptional in staying relevant and meaningful to the generation that grew up watching and reading it, whilst constantly engaging new and young audiences. In addition to its multi-generational and international appeal, its famous theme of conquering challenges really resonates with PUBG MOBILE and our players, and meant the PUBG MOBILE team really worked hard to make this one of the most impressive in-game brand collaborations.” 

A wide range of Dragon Ball Super-themed outfits and items, including those featuring Son Goku, Vegeta, Frieza, Pilaf, and Karin, will be available starting July 14th, with more content scheduled for release on August 11th. Players can anticipate an upcoming in-game-themed event that offers exclusive Dragon Ball Super rewards such as the “Kamesennin Style Set.” The Version 2.7 Update also includes various gameplay enhancements, including improvements to the World of Wonder creative mode, the addition of the editable Summer Brawl gameplay template, and the introduction of the new assault rifle ACE32 available on all maps. Cycle 5 Season 13 receives new content, rewards, and cosmetics, while the latest Royale Pass Ace introduces fresh core rewards and Season Missions.

Furthermore, PUBG MOBILE has exciting plans for an upcoming partnership with an iconic British luxury car manufacturer, which will be announced soon. Players can find comprehensive details about the Version 2.7 Update in the official patch notes.
