After being able to try it out in the beta for the last few weeks, the official version 0.14 update of PUBG Mobile has just been released for Android and iOS. It all revolves around the new pirate setting that we began seeing in the version 0.13.5m although now we have even more new features: a new game mode, new setting, new character progression system where you’ll unlock abilities (merely for looks), all the content of the Season Pass 8, and a good handful of smaller fixes.
Infection mode in PUBG Mobile
The new game mode follows in the steps of similar previous concepts like The longest night, and Survive the night in the EvoGround section. In this case, it offers a completely new map, a small harbor town where survivors and pirate-zombies battle it out. Yes, it’s exactly how it sounds.
Each round starts with two groups of five members. The objective of the undead is to infect all the humans, while the survivors’ main goal is to stay alive throughout the entire round. All it takes is one human is left standing in the end to win.
Each infected human will turn into a zombie and there are two types: one’s fast, and the other is stealthy and will do more damage with each hit. Also, once you’ve reached a certain point, one of the zombies will turn into a special boss as a sort of final challenge before the time runs out.
Other improvements in the version 0.14
- New menu system with the different game modes, now showing the information much more clearly.
- New pirate setting.
- Season Pass 8 with new rewards and customization elements.
- New character progression system that lets you get new animations to use with your character in the EvoGround modes.
- New rewards distribution for daily missions.
