The biggest feature in the November update to PUBG Mobile is the collab with Leo Messi. Tencent hasn’t revealed much about the collaboration yet, though.

However, the developer has confirmed that he will be the captain of the PUBG Mobile Global Chicken Cup. Players will be able to play alongside him in this mode.

As a part of the PUBG Mobile Chicken Cup, a grand football-themed park will be added to Erangel. It will have unique architecture and offer great loot to players.

The theme park will have a unique recall mechanic as well. There will be a countdown when a player lands at the park during which if they’re eliminated, they will recall automatically on the plane.

Furthermore, there will also be tracks around the park for players to travel around in the football-themed vehicle which is being added with PUBG Mobile’s November update.

A major feature in the new update is that players will be able to play as a literal football. That’s right, there will be a vehicle in the form of a big football. You will be able to jump in this vehicle and also quickly move around the map.

Football pitches are spawning across Erangel

Another exciting feature in PUBG Mobile’s November update update is that Tencent is adding multiple football pitches around Erangel. Players can go to these pitches to find special “Messi Golden Shoes.” On wearing this, the players’ movement speed will be significantly increased.

There will also be footballs on the pitches which players can score goals with to win some rewards. Additionally, these footballs can be used in battle by kicking them towards an enemy. A special undisclosed effect will be activated on doing so.
