The company has also revealed that it will commence its “The Dawn of a New Era” community event on the same day.
PUBG Mobile has confirmed via a tweet that the new era PUBG Mobile version 1.0 will include the highly anticipated Erangel map refresh. In addition to the “New Erangel” map, the new version 1.0 update, will bring a new and much more customisable and better visualised UX for the gamers. The update will include better graphics for the gameplay too, across the board.

The new Erangel map will come with some major changes like new design elements, a new weapon and better graphics overall, in a similar fashion to the Mad Miramar map.
Apart from the introduction of the “New Erangel” map, the new era version 1.0 update will also commence “The Dawn of a New Era” event, in which players will have a chance to win 30,000 UC. The event will require players to share screenshots and lips from the current Erangel map. After this, the developers will judge them in three categories: favourite Chicken Dinner memory, favourite screenshot on Erangel and favourite Erangel video clip. The developers will then choose three winners from each category and distribute the reward.
