What to expect from the PUBG Mobile x Arcane Collaboration?

The 1.7 update for PUBG Mobile will be available in mid-November and we have not received any gameplay details about the upcoming collaboration just yet.

Vincent Wang, Head of PUBG MOBILE Publishing, Tencent Games teased that the publisher has “a lot in store for our players with the Version 1.7 update, including some completely new gameplay features we’ve never experimented with before, so we can’t wait to show off more.”
