The PUBG Mobile 4th Anniversary is upon us, and has arrived in style with an explosion of color alongside the Version 1.9 update. With it comes a bevy of celebratory events and an all-new arena mode entitled Royale Arena: Assault. And to any PUBG fans living in San Francisco: you’re in for a big weekend.


PUBG Mobile remains one of the most popular battle royale app games despite Krafton’s recent mobile-specific release of PUBG: New State. So it stands to reason that the developer is pulling out all the stops to celebrate its fourth year on the app game circuit.


The theme of the PUBG Mobile 4th Anniversary celebrations is color, and lots of it. In-game content includes the Colorful Spawn Island, which allows players to dye four giant statues in their favorite color to trigger a special performance, Colorful Bicycles, and a brand new colorful Aerial Battleground.


Exclusive Warframe collaboration skins are also available as part of the update, along with myriad improvements to existing game modes and maps. Royale Arena: Assault, meanwhile, will feature 4v4 combat zones in Erangel and Livik, tasking combatants with completing elimination goals to achieve victory. However, players will have to wait until 7th April to jump in.

The flashy festivities don’t end in the digital realm, however. An in-person party is set to take place in San Francisco this Friday 26th March 11am-5pm. This anniversary event will involve a mobile loot crate truck, DJ sets, oodles of winnable swag and, of course, a generous helping of chicken dinners for attendees. Plus, fans will get the opportunity to see popular content creators such as Powerbang and Medalcore in the flesh.


Those further afield are also in luck, as Carnival-themed booths are popping up in Mexico City, Bangkok and Jakarta where fans will get the opportunity to score in-game rewards and contribute to the designs of their very own airdrops.


That’s not to mention PUBG Mobile’s very own Facebook and Instagram filter, collaborations with brand designers from across the world, a PUBG Mobile 4th anniversary theme song and accompanying TikTok dance challenge, plus an in-game 4th anniversary dance move.


Needless to say, PUBG Mobile isn’t slowing down any time soon. For all the information on the update, swing by the official patch notes. And for any IRL celebrations you want to catch, check out their official Twitter.
