PUBG 1.0 has begun rolling out a new update globally that introduces the much anticipated Erangel 2.0 map with many graphic and visual overhauls. Among the new features, gamers can see PUBG’s new lobby layout. This update will be published a few days after Indian authorities banned popular games.
How to download PUBG 1.0
Usually, if you have a new update for your app, you just have to visit the Google Play store or Apple App Store. However, due to the ban, PUBG Mobile no longer exists on Google Play and App Store in India. This means you cannot update PUBG 1.0 via Google Play or App Store.
However, this does not mean that the PUBG 1.0 update is not available. You can do this using the PUBG Mobile APK installation file and the OBB game file. Please note that this method is only available for Android devices and iOS users will have to wait until they find an alternative. If you are in doubt about the legality of the method, it’s 100% legal as you only have access to the original installation files. Here’s how to get the PUBG 1.0 update:

PUBG 1.0 Tips
This ensures that the update will run smoothly on our servers in India. However, if you can’t download the OBB file, you can just download the APK. When you open the game, the automatic download of the OBB file will start. As with all downloads and updates, make sure you have a stable and fast internet connection. Otherwise, the game on your device may be corrupted.
That being said, this method doesn’t work on all phones, it relies on RAM and storage capacity. Once the ban is enforced, you may worry about losing your downloaded games. So if you don’t know what to do, stick with the game you already have! The ban could be revoked for everything we know.
