PUBG Mobile new update details
The video announcing this shows that there appears to be a vending machine in an old abandoned warehouse. We gradually get closer to the machine, and it suddenly starts playing a tune. After the tune, the screen versions appear in quick succession with the launch date and the PUBG mobile logo. Given the responses, PUBG mobile players keep complaining about bugs and hackers in the game. The developer is already working on testing the beta version of the upcoming update behind the scenes. The recent YouTube video highlights all the changes we can expect from the PUBG Mobile 0.18.0 update.
Version 0.18.0 is likely to introduce Winchester 94 or win 94gun with the scope and P90 SMG (sub-machine gun). We can also see the map of Miramar 2.0 desert with variations and additions. These additions and changes include the new version of the Mirado vehicle and new vending machines with energy drinks and painkillers. This update will also bring a new "jungle mode," not a map of the Sanhok jungle.
The update also shows "Safety Scramble mode" that introduces blue-purple zones inside the protected zone. This will probably make the game more balanced for most players. In addition, we can also expect heavy or light sand storms on the map of Miramar. We took a look at the weapons in a new Cheer Park map, a new training mini-game, and PUBG mobile updates. PUBG Corp will also add a screenshot mode that doesn't work in matches and a new EVO rank event. This new update will also introduce a new gun-craft mode.
