At the time of writing, there is no telling how big the PUBG Mobile 0.19.0 update will be, or the exact time it will drop on the release date. We do, however, know some highlights of the update.
PUBG Mobile Livik map
Previously known as the "Secret Map" in beta, the PUBG Mobile Livik map is the first exclusive map for the mobile title, and it looks amazing. There are diverse areas, buildings, and even a waterfall.
The PUBG Mobile Livik map has been in beta since May, and is a combination of the existing four maps. It includes a tonne of loot crates scattered in different parts, which contain, for the most part, fully kitted weapons.

Livik is a 2x2km map, making it small in comparison to the other maps. It has a 40-player limit. The new PUBG Mobile Livik map also includes some new water physics in the form of waterfalls, and touching the water seems to give players a bit of a boost. Then, there's a Monster Truck for players to ride.
Speaking about vehicles, the PUBG Mobile 0.19.0 update also seems to be adding a little something from Yamaha.
PUBG Mobile Yamaha tease
It is likely that some superbikes from Yamaha will release in the PUBG Mobile 0.19.0 update for players to ride on.
Since the release date for PUBG Mobile 0.19.0 is 7th July, and this Yamaha tease from the developer on 30th June says "coming soon", there is very little doubt we will see some Yamaha superbikes enter the game with the next big update.
Armory Arena mode
A big new PUBG Mobile update wouldn't be complete without some new modes for players to dive into. So far, we know of the Armory Arena mode, which should release with PUBG Mobile update 0.19.0.
This is a 5v5 mode, very much like Gungame in Call of Duty. The Armory Arena Mode in PUBG Mobile will see players rotate between 18 different weapons, getting a new weapon to play with each time they get a kill.
We will keep you in the loop as soon as we know more about the upcoming PUBG Mobile update.
