For anyone wondering why PUBG Mobile has been down today and the servers offline, it’s because Tencent is releasing a new patch.
PUBG Mobile update 0.10 is being released very soon and required a lengthy period of downtime before this could be done.
The good news is that while there will be a gap between the PUBG maintenance and the release of the new update, servers will remain online during this time.
PUBG MOBILE 0.10 UPDATE
PUBG Mobile servers might be back online, but fans still need Tencent to release update 0.10.
The good news is that we know what day this will be happening, although the exact time the new patch rolls out is still unknown.

Due to how Tencent like to favour regional releases, the PUBG Mobile update will likely arrive depending on where you live.
The new update is not being released straight after today’s scheduled downtime and will instead be made available at some point on Tuesday, December 18.
Here’s the latest from Tencent, who confirm: “PUBG MOBILE will be taken offline for maintenance from 00:00 – 09:00 (UTC) on December 17th.
“Service may resume sooner or later depending on maintenance progress.
“The new version will be pushed to Google Play and App Store starting December 18.
“Update the game before December 25th to get Outfit Box III and 1,888 BP.”

WHAT IS IN PUBG MOBILE UPDATE 0.10?
While the actual numbering may differ, players are currently referring to the next patch as PUBG Mobile 0.10.
A short list of official patch notes have been shared by Tencent and confirm that the biggest update will be the release of the new Vkendi map.
However, there are a few other new features listed, including a snow theme for the main menu screen and cross-server matchmaking.
Fans can also look forward to the Firearms Finish Upgrade System being added to the game via the new patch.
While the official patch notes will be shared by Tencent later this week, there has also been a reported leak.
XDADevelopers has posted a leaked set of patch notes that could be proved correct very soon.
Highlight from these patch notes includes the launch of the Vikendi snow map and the launch of the exclusive Snowmobile vehicle.
They also confirm that Tencent will be launching a special winter event by allowing Battle Royale players to engage in snowball Fights on Vikendi’s Spawn Island.
More details on what could be coming later this week as part of PUBG Mobile 0.10 can be found below.
