Season 4 of PUBG Mobile has come to a close and ushered in Season 5, bringing with it a tonne of new content for fans of the game on portable devices.

Season 5 has brought with it a slew of new content, including fancy outfits, game modes and more to mess around with. In this article we've pulled together everything you need to know about PUBG Mobile's latest Season.

We'll make sure to keep this guide updated as more patches are introduced throughout the season.

UPDATE - 21st January 2019

Season 5 is now live! Here's the official trailer which gives you a sneak peek at some of the new cosmetic items you'll be able to earn:

UPDATE - 18th January 2019

The PUBG Mobile twitter account has confirmed that the Season 5 update will arrive on Saturday 19th January at 02:00am GMT. Here's the embedded tweet:

Here are the full patch notes for the Season 5 update:

  • Added MK47, which can be found in Erangel, Miramar, and Sanhok. It fires 7.62mm rounds and has two firing modes.

  • Vikendi is now available as a map when creating rooms.
  • The "Classic" voice is back. You can find it in Settings after the update.
  • Spawn Island announcements can now be enabled or disabled in Settings.

  • Clan benefit sharing has been tuned.
  • Avatar display of Crew Challenge winner has been adjusted.
  • Shop has been adjusted.
  • Supplies can now be accessed from the main menu.

PUBG Mobile Season 5: Theme

We've enjoyed a decidedly frosty theme to mark the winter season of Season 4, but now things are about to start heating up quite a bit.

This time around, Season 5 is taking on somewhat of an apocalyptic/supervillain theme, with the introduction of a rivalry between Team Shadow and Team Force.

Some of the images that have been circulating on the internet suggest a fiery apocalypse is on its way to PUBG Mobile, so get ready for some truly hellish gameplay when it goes live next week.

PUBG Mobile Season 5: Skins and Outfits

It wouldn't be a new season of PUBG mobile without a new collection of weapon skins and player outfits to work towards.

Given the development team's previous attempts to tie the new cosmetic items to the current theme, you can expect a few items designed around the infernal apocalypse we've already outlined.

As far as weapons are concerned, there's a bunch of new skins for many of the weapons in the game. Vehicles like the Dacia have also received cosmetics too.

PUBG Mobile Season 5: Elite Pass

Season 5 has introduced a brand new Battle Pass, stuffed to the brim with weekly and daily missions that you can complete in order to rank up. By doing so, you'll unlock plenty of goodies as you climb through the ranks.

As with previous seasons, expect a free pass with limited rewards, and an Elite Pass / Elite Pass Plus which will contain increasingly tempting rewards.

That's everything that's been leaked so far about the new season. We'll have another update for our PUBG Mobile Season 5 guide as soon as official information starts trickling through. Check back soon for more details.
