PUBG Mobile Season 17 is has been released and offers a new Royale Pass along with new skins and emotes.

Despite the fact that Tencent’s licence to distribute PUBG Mobile in India has been revoked and the company has been planning an India-specific PUBG Mobile India game, there is no clarity whether the game will be released in India in the coming days.
