With PUBG Season 8 a mere distant memory now, the ninth season is about to raise the temperature by introducing a brand new map to kick-start proceedings. The heat is on as Season 9 whisks us off to the mysterious land of Paramo and brings in a fresh Survivor Pass.
Having already begun on PC, the latest update for PUBG has arrived on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Google Stadia. The biggest new addition for Season 9 is the treacherous new Paramo 3×3 map that’s capable of hosting matches for up to 64 players. Hidden among the clouds in the highlands of South America, Paramo is an ancient land holding ancient secrets within. Paramo’s dangers are plentiful, but none quite as dangerous as the lava-spewing active volcano nearby. Survivors dropping onto this battlefield will only be able to reach the highlands via a helicopter!
As always, the start of a new season also means fresh beginnings for those taking part in the Ranked Mode offerings. Additionally, there’s another Survivor Pass and it’s titled Highlands, bringing new rewards for everyone and extra stuff for the players who grab the Premium Pass. Those brave enough to partake in the pass will be able to earn Paramo-themed rewards and skins by completing missions.
In tandem with the update, there are four new DLC packs to peruse, including the PUBG Highlands Pack which gives access to the special Survivor Pass, boosts you by five levels on it and rewards a skin set for £12.49. Alternatively, the PUBG Gear Up Pack at £8.39 is an option to acquire some G-Coins and the five level boost. There are two other packs available for free to Xbox Game Pass subscribers (£16.74 for everyone else): the PUBG October Horror Pack and the PUBG Flower Child Pack.
Fire up PUBG today, download the latest update and let us know how you get on with the Paramo map!
