Popular battle royale game PUBG Mobile has been updated to version 0.12.0 that brings a range of new features to the game. Tencent Games has pushed the update for both Android and iOS, with the Android update weighing about 475MB. The PUBG Mobile 0.12.0 update is being rolled out in phases and as such, it might take a while to be available for your device.
Earlier last month, Tencent Games announced the PUBG Mobile Club Open 2019, touting it as the "world's biggest global e-sports venture".
The new PUBG Mobile 0.12.0 update brings features like EvoZone which is a collection of modes. As a part of the update, the Survive Till Dawn mode has been moved under EvoZone. Tencent has also added a new mode called Zombie: Darkest Night - players will have to survive the entire night fighting zombies. Teams that make it to through the night will be the winners.
Talking about zombies, Tencent has now added capabilities like jumping, wall climbing to zombies. Additionally, zombie dogs have also been introduced to make the game more interesting.
Coming to weaponry, the new PUBG Mobile 0.12.0 update adds liquid nitrogen grenades that will make it easier to fight enemies. These grenades will freeze enemies and later on, slow them down, allowing you to fight them better.
Apart from this, a new grenade launcher RPG-7 has also been introduced in the game. In terms of improvements, the flamethrower and M134 have received additional fine tuning.
Lastly, the new update also brings the much awaited Spectator Mode to PUBG Mobile. With this, your friends, clan members and crews can spectate your matches. Tencent has also given an option to adjust your privacy settings for Spectator Mode.
