PUBG Mobile is all set to receive its next update, version 0.14.0. Only a few days back, the beta version of the PUBG Mobile 0.14.0 leaked online on YouTube which gave away some significant pointers about this new update. Now recently, we have come across the changelog of this new update which reveals much more details about the upcoming update which will be rolled out the users in a few days. Here are more details about the upcoming update of PUBG Mobile, which includes new features, and add-ons.
Resource Expansion Pack and Changes in Modes
The first addition in the new PUBG Mobile update is the Resource Expansion pack. In this new update, Tencent has reduced the size of Android installation package and added Resource Expansion Pack, which contains some rarely used equipment and resources that are displayed with a placeholder icon unless the Pack is downloaded. The update has also added tier information in Classic mode, the matchmaking and Settings are now on the same page, and it has also improved the visual effects.
As part of this new update, the daily missions have also been redesigned. In the latest version of the game, the number of Daily Missions are reduced, and rewards have been adjusted. Also, the daily missions, other than the login mission, are released randomly. If players are not satisfied with their current Daily Missions, they can switch to other random missions in the mission pool up to three times a day.
Infection Mode with Zombies
A new feature that PUBG Mobile 0.14.0 comes with it is the Infection Mode, which is an asymmetric PVP mode. After the match starts, players are randomly divided into Zombies and Defenders. While Defenders can use firearms, Zombies can only use melee attacks and abilities with cooldown time. Zombies can be revived after being defeated by Defenders, while Defenders will be turned into Zombies after being killed by Zombies. If all Defenders are infected, zombies win; if even just 1 Defender survives, then the Defenders win.
Changes in Character System
On the character system front, there are also new changes like each player gets a character at the beginning. Characters start with one skill that is only effective within EvoGround. Now, characters can be customised with outfits, voices, emotes, and MVP emotes. The players can now also level up the characters and collect progress rewards by playing with them in any mode to earn EXP.
New Rewards in PUBG Mobile 0.14.0 and Outfits
There are also new rewards for the players along with achievements, like Fun Times V, Class Lover V, Shotgun Mastery V and more. The inventory interaction UI has also been adjusted with the Non-inventory UI functions being blocked in Inventory, expanded item display area, simplified editing of emotes, improved selection logic for firearms and vehicles, ability to show the helmets and backpacks in the main menu and new zoom feature to zoom in on the character when viewing firearms, hats, glasses, face accessories and backpacks.
As for the outfits, after the update, if the outfit being previewed is in conflict with the currently equipped outfit, the current outfit will be unequipped to make sure the previewed outfit displays correctly.
