PUBG Mobile's latest update to bring new weapons, Zombie modeLast updated on Jan 04, 2019, 01:36 pm
PUBG Mobile enjoys immense popularity as being the most favored Battle Royale on mobile platforms and dominates the Asian markets specifically.
The game recently got the new snow map Vikendi, but players have complained of lags and issues.
PUBG Corp. wants to keep the gamers happy and has announced a new update 0.10.5, which will arrive this month.
Here is all about the update.
Dynamic weather comes to Erangel and Miramar
Notably, Sanhok already has dynamic weather with fog and rainfall. We fully expect sandstorms in Miramar and perhaps rain in Erangel.
Notably, reports suggest there will be areas on these maps which will be covered with rain or snow, making dynamic gameplay interesting.
Changes coming to the Vikendi snow map
Players on the Vikendi snow map had complained of lags and glitches. The new update will fix these and stabilize the map.
More importantly, Vikendi too is getting dynamic weather, so we have to see how snowstorms affect visibility during the Battle Royale.
Day and night modes are coming to this snow map as well, so keep an eye out for night vision goggles.
New vehicles and weapons coming to the game
PUBG Mobile is getting a new snow bike that might be introduced to both Erangel and Vikendi.
Sanhok is getting the Tukshai vehicle.
Among guns, the rumored G36C and PP-19 Bizon might be coming.
However, there is a confirmed new assault rifle arriving, called Mk 47 using 7.62mm bullets.
A new laser sight attachment is coming which will increase firing from the hip accuracy.
Zombies might be coming with this update
Although details on the Zombie mode are spare, it is expected to be present in the Arcade Mode rather than the normal Battle Royale.
Players will have to gun down hordes of zombies in this mode. If rumors are to believed, the zombies will be unarmed but will rely on sheer numbers to overwhelm the player.
We have to wait for further official details.
Other changes coming to the game and PUBG Mobile's future
Among other changes coming to PUBG Mobile, are new dance emotes, classic voices and a death cam feature, where players can replay their death.
The death cam is interesting because if players feel their deaths were unfair they might report it to developers for investigation of cheating.
Nonetheless, the host of upcoming changes signals PUBG Mobile is off to a strong start in 2019.
