On a perpetual endeavor to engage with their community with never-seen-before elements and features to make for the ultimate gaming experience, PUBG MOBILE has teamed up with Metro Exodus.

PUBG MOBILE kicked off November with a bang by revealing the much-awaited version 1.1 update, with an unprecedented collaboration with Metro Exodus, the latest video game in the acclaimed Metro series – an atmospheric, story-driven first-person-shooter set in post-apocalyptic Russia, published by Deep Silver and inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky. The “Metro Royale” themed update brings all-new Royale Pass Season 16, the first ever crossover Royale Pass for PUBG MOBILE. New outfits of Metro-themed characters, crossover adventures and rewards are now available for players to get.
The Royale Pass Season 16 content update delivers beloved characters outfits and other recognizable content from Metro Exodus. Upon obtaining the Royale Pass Season 16 subscription, players will immediately unlock themed outfits of Metro characters Artyom or Anna in Rank 1. Colonel Miller Outfit or Casual Miller Outfit can be unlocked from the challenges in the exclusive Royale Pass event Metro Adventure. Players can use the Metro Badges in the event to start their adventure and reach various stations to get supplies which can be used to get great deals for outfits and item finishes.
By upgrading the rank of Royale Pass, players can unlock more premium outfits, including Cyber Enforcer Outfit in Rank 50, Mythic Night Terror Outfit in Rank 100. Players can even rank up their Royale Pass by the new RP Team feature. By joining an RP Team with friends, the whole team members can unlock rewards when their rank increases to a specified number.
Besides the new Royale Pass update, to thank players and community members for their continued support, the team behind PUBG MOBILE also revealed several Cyber Week events for the Thanksgiving season. From now until Sunday, Dec. 6, all players that log into the game will be entered into a draw for a $2,500 USD reward, a full return of all UC spent during the event, and a OnePlus 8T, with four winners being selected. Similarly, from Monday, Nov. 23 to Sunday, Dec. 6, players can complete daily missions to earn Cyber Week Discount Coupons, which can be used to unlock rewards such as surprise Emoji Gift Packs.

More discounts and rewards can be earned from additional Cyber Week activities and celebrations with Thanksgiving spirit, including 70% to 90% off new outfits and firearms, 30% to 70% off classic encores, and a return of spent UC on purchasing and spending.
The update arrives in the latest version 1.1 of PUBG MOBILE. The new version introduces a new lightweight installation function to Android players with 70% smaller file size with the same gaming experience.
