The next big update for PUBG: Battlegrounds, patch 19.1 is on the way, coming to PC on August 10 and consoles on August 18.
The update includes a new tool that will see a new MP9 gun (the first fully automatic SMG to use 9mm) and new tactical gear called the Blue Chip Detector. The new gear will be a radar that can be used to scan enemies within a 100m radius. (However, only the 12 closest to you will be visible on this radar)
In addition, the brand new Collapsible Shield that can tank up to 1500 health awaits players, and you will once again have the opportunity to play on the Haven map. The update also brings "familiar enemies" from the recently announced Assassin's Creed event.
ICYMI, the pass event for PUBG, will be an interesting event with Assassin's Creed-themed cosmetics, events, and "world elements" from August 17 to September 22, where you can find a hidden Animus machine.
Assassin-flavored hardware is also coming to New State Mobile. More than 30 unique Assassin's Creed-themed skins, including Ezio and Shay weapon skins and co-op chests, for PUBG mobile, as well as limited-time missions are coming.

“As part of the ongoing collaboration between PUBG: Battlegrounds and Assassin's Creed, players will now be able to explore a variety of themed resources and gear on the Haven map, which has been relaunched for the first time since Season 16,” Krafton said.
“Abstergo Industries has taken over one of the map's main buildings, complete with a secret Animus machine and strategically placed "Leap of Faith" ledges on the building's roof. The collaboration also gives players the chance to earn themed cosmetic rewards through the game; including new costumes, bag skins, parachute skin, emote, and more.”
PUBG's newest map, Deston, is now playable on PC and console. This map is the first map added to the game since the game became free to play.
Deston includes a submerged downtown, a swamp, a coastline, “one of the tallest skyscrapers in the game” as well as the Lodge, which is “the largest building ever built” in the game.
