Phones that have 90Hz refresh rate screens can now run the game at higher frame rates.

Other improvements: Some of the other improvements to PUBG Mobile with update 1.0 include combat improvements, classic combat animation improvements, Arena updates, Cheer Park updates, and more.

PUBG Mobile update 1.0 is 1.8GB in size on Android and 2.17GB on iOS devices. The game has been removed from the both the Play store and the App Store in India, following the recent ban.

PUBG Mobile has been under scrutiny for a while now and in the past week, the Indian government decided to ban a total of 118 Chinese apps in the country, PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite being among them. While the game has been playable since the ban announcement, the developers have been trying to make things right and work out a solution with the Indian government. In a recent development, game developer PUBG Corporation has decided to no longer authorise PUBG Mobile franchise to Shenzhen-based Tencent Games in India. This means PUBG Corporation will be taking over the publishing responsibilities for the game in the country.
