Arcane X PUBG Crossover Events Brings Riot Games’ Animated Series to Mobile

Riot Games is making a big push to promote its animated series, Arcane, across its own franchises, such as Valorant, but it’s also partnering with other publishers to bring crossover events to games outside of its own portfolio. That includes PUBG Mobile; announced today, the game is getting an Arcane-themed event in tandem with its latest patch, Version 1.7 when it arrives on Nov. 17.

A press release sent to Twinfinite explains that with new playable characters, a mysterious story, unique gameplay, weapons and abilities, players will travel between Erangel, Piltover and Zaun as some of the show’s most well-known champions. The Version 1.7 update also brings new gameplay features, downed player carry system, new outfits, Cyber Week sales, and much more.

By selecting ‘themed mode’ when playing a Classic game on Erangel, players will find the huge and mysterious floating Mirror Island. Early in the game, Mirror Island can be explored by players for supplies. However, as the game continues, Mirror Island will activate and become extremely unstable. Players who come in contact with the Wind Wall will be transported to either Piltover or Zaun, two iconic cities from League of Legends.

Players who land on the activated Mirror Island will also be able to transform into the iconic champions Jinx, Vi, Jayce, or Caitlyn, and use unique weapons and skills to battle against other players. Defeated players return to Erangel in their original form. 

In addition to battling and exploring in these new areas, players can interact with these champions to uncover clues on what’s taking place in the world of Arcane, and help those champions return to their own world before it’s too late. Unfortunately, Enforcers, Firelights and Berserkers have also entered the world of PUBG Mobile, and players have to stop them from causing mayhem.

Using Hex Shards and other supplies, players can complete the story and return Jinx, Vi, Jayce, and Caitlyn back to Runeterra. Hex Shards can also be used to purchase battle supplies such as the new Stimulant Pack, which gives players the ability to recover health upon defeating enemies, and the Landing Pack, which gives players the ability to glide.

From Nov. 23 until Jan. 3, players can also accumulate Exploration Progress by playing matches in Mirror World or Classic Mode, and earn exclusive Arcane emotes and items, with some recreating the ultimates of the Arcane champions.

Mirror Island will descend on Erangel on Nov. 16.

As for the update itself, PUBG Mobile Version 1.7 update also brings new ways to play together. Knocked down players, both teammates and enemies can now be carried instead of only reviving them or eliminating them. While carrying another player, movement speed is slowed and no other actions are available, including combat, picking up supplies, entering vehicles or using consumables. Passive damage for the player being carried also occurs at a slower rate, meaning it will take longer for them to be eliminated.

Even better, all the fan-favorite modes brought back in Version 1.6 are set to remain playable in the Version 1.7 update. Metro Royale: Reunion, Vikendi, Payload 2.0, Runic Power, Survive Till Dawn and Infection Mode will all be playable at certain times of the week.

The Version 1.7 update also introduces the new All-Talent Championship Season 4. Teams can compete in weekly matches in order to earn activity rewards and ranking rewards, and move on to the playoffs, Semi-finals and Finals where they will battle it out with the very best competition to earn the ultimate bragging rights. 

Players can now enjoy Season 3 of Cycle 1, the new season system that brings updated missions to complete and rewards to earn. Season 3 of Cycle 1 introduces a new season-exclusive currency that is obtained as a match reward and tier reward, along with an improved Challenge Points system that adds estimates for when Challenge Points will take effect. There are also new missions available in themed modes that unlock rewards when completed, and players who collect the Diamond, Crown and Ace Badges in the same cycle can get high-quality supplies for free.

From Nov. 21 to Dec. 5, PUBG Mobile will offer store promotions and discounts to players with the arrival of Cyber Week. Players can earn rewards and coupons for activity, purchase outfits up to 90% off their regular price, and purchase the new Black Friday exclusive set with an opportunity to earn all their UC back with UC rebate missions. More information can be found by logging into the game.

November also brings Royale Pass Month 5: Mirror Realm. From Nov. 19 until Dec. 19, players can claim the Vanguard and Lethal Creepster content, the Duty Till The End – Kar98K and Duty Till The End – MK47 outfits and more. A free RP voucher for December’s Royale Pass Month 6: Mythic Winter, can be won in the server-wide Golden Chicken event– more details in-game!

The Version 1.7 update also adds a number of gameplay and security improvements. New difficulty modes will also be available to provide an extra challenge, and players can now enter a game before matching with teammates. More details can be found in the official patch notes.
