PUBG Mobile Update Out Now, Adds First-Person Mode And More
PUBG Corp. and Tencent have released a new update for the mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The update is available to download now for both iOS and Android devices, and it introduces a handful of new features to the game, including an additional mode, emotes, and other content.
Among other things, update 0.6.0 adds the ability to play Classic Mode in PUBG Mobile in first-person. It also introduces a chaotic new Arcade mode called Mini-Zone. In this mode, players are dropped onto a smaller map that contains three times as many weapons as usual, making for more intense and much shorter matches.
Beyond that, the update adds a Royale Pass, a new type of progression system that’s similar to the upcoming Event Pass for the PC version of PUBG. The Royale Pass features an assortment of daily and weekly missions to undertake. By completing the challenges, players will increase their rank and earn crates.
In addition to unlocking items, Tencent says the player who has the highest Royale Pass level will be able to choose the starting plane’s finish before parachuting out at the beginning of the match. The developer has also introduced a number of new weapon finishes to earn and customize their characters with in PUBG Mobile.
Rounding out the update are various new emotes and items. Players can also now see a weapon’s stats and how it compares with other weapons when browsing the Armory. You can read the full list of changes in update 0.6.0 in the patch notes–as taken from the App Store–below.
