The game will become even more exciting thanks to this collaboration, which will introduce two new off-road vehicles to PUBG Mobile. The Polaris RZR Pro R4, a modern side-by-side style offroader with incredible power and excellent handling, and the Polaris RZR Turbo R4, which is a powerhouse that handles harsh terrain with ease.

These two automobiles are of course Polaris’ real designs translated into PUBG Mobile while staying as true to their real-life counter parts as possible. There will also be a third addition, a Buggy with a Polaris-inspired design. This will represent a middle ground between the two previously mentioned vehicles. Two skins for the Buggy will be released alongside it.
