PUBG Corp. is still working towards the full release of the mobile variant of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and today the company got the game just a bit closer to 1.0 with another patch.
The 0.9.0 patch for PUBG Mobile is live, and brings in lots of new content and various adjustments to gameplay. There’s no new maps this time around, but there’s still plenty of new stuff to discuss.
The mobile Battle Royale title is adding in some spooky elements ahead of Halloween. Players will also be able to unlock Halloween weapon and vehicle skins and customize their outfits with more options from a new color palette.There’s lots of new decorations scattered around maps pulled right from a haunted house attraction. You’ll see spooky scarecrows, dead bodies and a bunch of other scary junk.
Maps are also getting detail passes to add more environmental detail like trees, buildings, rivers and other fun stuff. The Sanhok map is also getting the QBU DMR rifle and Rony pickup truck.
In addition to new content and gameplay additions, 0.9.0 introduces a bunch of other fixes and changes to the way the game works. Some matchmaking issues and delays have been worked out, leading to quicker load times, and other performance issues in-game have been addressed. Bullet-spread accuracy was a bit out of wack, so the devs have addressed the issue on various weapons.
In terms of gameplay modes, there’s a lot that’s new in this patch. A spectator mode has been put in so you can now watch opponents until the end of the match. Night mode is being added to allow for a more immersive gameplay experience. Players will be able to switch between day and night as well as loot for night vision goggles to give them a better line of sight. Finally, a A new Crew Challenge that allows up to six players to team up to take on other crews for big rewards.
