PUBG Mobile will soon be updated to version 0.16.0, and we previously reported on some of the new features that could be made available with it. Now, developers of the mobile battle royale title have released the official update 0.16.0 patch notes, which confirms all the new features that will be made available. The developers also announced that the update will be made available from December 11 with no downtime on the server and will be 0.67GB in size on both Android and iOS. Here are some of the major new additions to the game that you need to know about. 

PUBG Mobile developers posted the complete patch notes on Reddit. Highlights of the new update include the addition of RageGear, a new EvoGround mode, along with Snow Paradise and new Healing Updates that are being added as new Classic Mode features. RageGear will divide players into two teams and randomly assign them as either driver or shooters. The objective here is to destroy enemy vehicles. Additionally, players now have a chance to enter Snow Paradise while queuing for Erangel in Classic mode and this mode enables users to take cable cars on mountains and play freestyle snowboarding.
