When will we get Erangel 2.0?

PUBG Mobile has received the update v0.19.0 on July 7 which introduced the first only PUBG Mobile map called Livik. The update was close to the latest teasers, however, it isn’t clear if the much-awaited Erangel 2.0 map will also make its way to the game as part of the upcoming PUBG Mobile updates anytime soon.

Now, developers have also released the official patch notes and revealed all the new content and features that will finally arrive on PUBG in the update, however, there is no mention of Erangel 2.0 in the patch.

The exact Erangel 2.0 global release date is still not clearly said, however, they recently announced that developers confirmed that the Erangel 2.0 will be releasing in the second half of 2020. This delay is mostly because the developer team is still in the process of adding some final touches to the map.

They have also cleared out the fact that it’s been a while since the news first came out, but they have to focus on making it up to the expectations both visually and in terms of performance before it is live on global servers. Developers have also requested the fans for keeping a lookout for all the patch updates to stay updated.

PUBG Mobile’s Erangel 2.0 map is an improved version of the classic Erangel map that was the first map available in the game and made out by the developers a while ago. It also provides high-quality graphics and features many new colors and improved versions of different buildings.

Developers have already released Erangel 2.0 in “Game for Peace’ (a Chinese version of PUBG Mobile). The size of the update is close to 1.7 GB and requires around 7 GB of free storage on the system.

Players are looking out for Tencent Games to release the PUBG Mobile version of Erangel 2.0 soon. Many players usually play the Chinese version of the game to try out the new features before these make their way to the global version of the game.

So if you want to try out and play Erangel 2.0 Map then you have to download the Chinese version of PUBG Mobile. After a few months of testing, Tencent Games will also bring Erangel 2.0 out in the global version. The map will have revamped buildings, and more covers will get introduced in the open fields.

A huge graphical improvement is clearly visible to the map of Erangel 2.0 update. The detailing of all the buildings and environment have reached to the next level. Even every element of the environment i.e. sky, water, and vegetation got a more realistic touch. Among the new additions, abandoned tanks, horse skeletons, bunkers, and trenches are exclusively noticed. Basements are added to some of the buildings and the Nuclear Plant, Mine, and Prison area are wrapped with a new layout in the Chinese version.
