PUBG Mobile took mobile gamers by storm with its fast-paced competitive online multiplayer Battle Royale gameplay. However, the competition is heating up since there are multiple games that are vying to surpass PUBG Mobile, with its most anticipated upcoming rival being Call of Duty: Mobile. To keep gamers interested in the title, PUBG Mobile has released the 0.12.0 beta update for the game and has added numerous new features and is fixing multiple bugs to deliver a smoother gaming experience. Digit has learned that players will get to take pet companions into the game, which will be visible only to them and their teammates. Additionally, there’s a new “Survive Until the Rescue arrives” event where users need to “survive till extraction.” Here are the details of what users will experience in the new PUBG 0.12.0 beta update.

Companion system:

With the new PUBG beta update, the game developers have introduced pet companions in the game. Based on the patch notes, the game devs will add eagles as pet companions that will earn XP in some undisclosed way. There’s no information on whether other animals will be added or not. A pet companion will be visible only to players and their teammates and not their opponents. Additionally, companions need 10,000 XP to level up and unlock new animations, and XP can be bought in the form of food where each piece of food grants 100XP to the pet. 

While swimming or proning, the companion will fly away and return when the said actions are not being performed. The addition of companion to the game is similar to what Fortnite did with its Season 6 Battle Pass, where players could unlock three new pets, which were passive and didn’t affect the gameplay.

New 'Survive Until the Rescue arrives' event mode:

After PUBG Survive till dawn, the game will now receive a new ‘Survive Until the Rescue arrives’ game mode. Players will be spawned on a random place on the Erangel map, and as the name suggests, will need to survive till they are extracted. Currently, the event is called 'Zombie: Darkest Night' mode.

Details of the new event haven’t been revealed yet but according to the patch notes, players will now have lobbies in their inventory and one will likely be able to buy them. There will be some new achievements while playing in the new mode, along with reworked portable closet and quick chat. Some items will also light up if they are important and the player’s avatar will drop an empty gun magazine to the floor and open doors with their arm. 

Updates to Zombies: Survive till dawn event:

PUBG Mobile developers are also pushing some new updates to the currently available Survive till dawn event. The RPG 7 rocket launcher is being added to the game and it will be spawned in the world with six rockets and iron sights. Explosive crossbow arrows that explode on impact and liquid nitrogen mines that slow everyone down in its range will also be available. Additionally, players won’t be able to go outside because of a “toxic gas,” as you can see below.

A new jungle mag, double Assault Rifles extended mag, is being added to the game. The new extended magazine holds 60 bullets and can only be attached to ARs. This magazine will only be found in elite zombie drops. 

Reticle Customisations:

Users will now be able to customise the red dot reticle with multiple different shapes, and can also change it to green. Holo sight/2x/3x reticle colour can be changed to green and the hip-fire crosshair will be available in more colours. Gamers will also be able to showcase their UAZ skin in the lobby and can spectate their friends from the lobby. When spectating enemies, users can now send them friend requests as well.
