The Miramar desert map comes to PUBG Mobile today


PUBG Mobile's gameplay isn't the only thing that got an improvement with this update.

The second most popular battle royale game on the App Store (for the time being), PUBG Mobile, received one of its biggest updates since launch on Tuesday.

Interestingly, the mobile version of PUBG has nabbed the Miramar map before the Xbox One version of the every-man-for-himself-shooter, while PC users have been duking it out on the map for a while now.

Twitch has added new filters to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds streams to allow players to sort out streams based on the number of players alive.
