Updates are one of the primary reasons why PUBG Mobile has grown exponentially since its release. Over the years, many unique aspects have made their way into the game, including new features, maps, and modes.
The developers generally release a new version of the game every few months, and the latest one, update 1.8, will be available today, January 12, 2022. Users will be able to download it to their devices after it starts rolling out. It’s 11:00 a.m. UTC.
PUBG Mobile 1.8 features: New features
Listed below are some of the important features that will be introduced once update 1.8 becomes available:
1) Aftermath map
This is a new Classic Mode map which is basically a modified version of the beloved Livik. Users can experience cool and fast paced action and enjoy unranked matches on this map. Characters will be equipped with tactical glasses by default on this battlefield.
2) Spider-Man game mode
Fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Spider-Man game mode since the developers announced the collaboration back in December. It will be made available in Erangel and Livik on January 12 and January 15, respectively. Thus, the same will continue until February 14.
3) Separation of Unranked and Ranked Modes
The separation of sorted and unclassified modes is another important change mentioned in the patch notes for update 1.8. This will enable casual players to enjoy unranked matches and have a less difficult experience with their friends.
4) New supply shop and recall mechanic
On select maps, the Supply Store and Summon Mechanic will also be introduced. The first will enable users to purchase supplies and other items after collecting a certain coin/token on the battlefield. Meanwhile, the summoning mechanic will allow individuals to revive their teammates via the summoning tower.
5) Royale Pass M7
After the end of the M6 pass, the RP M7 – Royale Guard will make its way to PUBG Mobile. The developers will integrate it on January 18th, and the same will last until February 17th. Through it, players will be able to get a variety of unique rewards.
