PUBG Mobile 0.14.0 update goes live with new Infection mode, read complete patch notes here

Shubham Sharma   Aug 14, 2019

PUBG Mobile is now being updated to version 0.14.0, which brings multiple new features to the game. The key highlight of the new update is a new Infection Mode, which will test gamers’ survival skills by dividing them into zombies and defenders. The new game mode will be played out on a new map. In addition to the new game mode, there are some visual improvements as well and the mode selection UI is now adjusted. Daily missions are also redesigned and there’s now a new character system that assigns a character to every player, which has one skill that is available only when playing in the EvoGround mode. 

Talking more about the new Infection mode, players are randomly divided into zombies and defenders. Those players who become zombies can only use melee attacks and special abilities that have a cooldown time. Defenders, on the other hand, will get to use weapons to defeat other zombie players. However, defenders that are bested by zombies will be resurrected as zombies. We tried out the new game mode and it does seem fresh, which would excite players. Do try it out yourself and tell us what you think about it. We also have complete patch notes, which detail all the changes that are made with the new update. Additionally, PUBG has also announced Independence Day challenge where one can win various rewards. You can check it out here.
