The first of two new game modes is the Dragon Ball Super themed mode, which tasks players with collecting Dragon Balls hidden around PUBG maps in order to gain powerful buffs by summoning Shenron. The second mode is called Battle Royal: Dragon Ball Super mode and will allow players to take control of one of five classic Dragon Ball characters. Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo, Frieza and Ultimate Gohan will be available. Each character has their own abilities, and we can upgrade them by collecting Spirit Crystals while using several new traversal options like Teleport points and Updraft. On July 14, 2023, several special outfits and items will become available in the PUBG Mobile store, including outfits based on Goku, Vegeta, Frieza, Pilaf and Karin.

You can get a look at some of the upcoming features in the tweet below:

Player Unkown’s Battlegrounds has previously held collaborations with both Gackt and Evangelion, resulting in special themed cosmetics like plug suits and EVA-inspired armor for player characters to wear. The Dragon Ball franchise also recently had several movies added to Crunchyroll’s library Dragon Ball Super: Broly, and Uniqlo had a special series of Dragon Ball themed shirts launch back in May.

PUBG Mobile is immediately available on mobile devices, with the Dragon Ball Super event launching with update 2.7 on July 13, 2023.
