PUBG Mobile update news has been shared by Tencent today before the release of patch 0.12.0.
The development team don’t usually provide such a lot of information before making changes to the popular Android and iOS shooter.
However, it appears that for this new patch at least, we’re getting some big news before its release date.
According to Tencent, a new Zombie mode is being worked on, as well as new improvements to the existing Survive Till Dawn Mode.
Both will be part of the big new update, which is still without a release date for either platform.
However, as Tencent is now sharing details from the upcoming patch, it seems we could be close to getting a maintenance schedule for PUBG Mobile.
And a new statement from the company has confirmed a few major details for when it might drop.
While the new PUBG Mobile update won’t be dropping over the coming days, it appears next week is being planned as the official launch window.
Here’s the news from a recent PUBG Mobile statement, which reveals: “In late 2018, Tencent Games, PUBG Corporation and Capcom joined forces to bring the notorious world of Resident Evil 2 into PUBG MOBILE for a terrifying survival mode riddled with the undead.
“Next week’s 0.12.0 update amplifies the horror further with the introduction of “Darkest Night” mode.
“In this revamped survival game type, players are dropped into PUBG MOBILE’s, where they can team up or go solo to fight off hordes of zombies and poison gas for 30 minutes to escape.
“The version 0.12.0 update arrives just weeks after Tencent Games, and PUBG Corporation announced the PUBG MOBILE Club Open 2019, the game’s biggest global esports venture ever with over $2.5 million in prize pool earnings.
“With more than 200 million downloads and 30 million daily players, PUBG MOBILE continues to grow as one of the world’s most trending mobile games.”
Until then, Tencent has also teased these new modes, including improved spectator options and crosshair modifications.
Survive Till Dawn 2.0 – The PUBG MOBILE x Resident Evil 2 survival game mode will be revamped with new gruesome ghouls and never-before-seen ballistic weaponry for even more nightmarish gameplay;
- Darkest Night – Players can team up or drop-in solo to survive the undead invasion and toxic gas until evacuation;
- Spectator Mode – Players can observe the action live by spectating the matches of their friends, Crew and Clan members;
- Crosshair Modifications – The red dot, holographic, 2x scope and 3x scopes can be adjusted to different colours, along with multiple shape variations of the red dot reticle.
More news on the upcoming PUBG Mobile update is expected to be shared next week, along with if it will need server downtime.
The likelihood is high, considering that a lot of new content is being added to the game with the new Zombie mode.
This will mean some disruption to player game time but should also include some bug fixes for known issues.
