Tencent Games has released a new 0.8.0 update patch for Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile (PUBG mobile), the popular battle royale gaming title on mobile devices. The company has also announced that the game has surpassed 20 million daily active users with about billion matches played in the last season. Highlights of the new update include the new Sanhok map, which was in beta for the mobile version of the title but already available on PC and was recently rolled out for Xbox. The new map is smaller in comparison with Miramar and Erangel and features a more tropical terrain. 

The new update also adds new in-game and social features that are said to help in better cooperation between teammates. The update also brings new weapons and vehicles like the Flare Gun, QBZ, Muscle Car and Bulletproof UAZ. The flare gun can be useful as it calls in an airdrop when inside the battlezone and a bulletproof UAZ when outside it. 

Thanks to improved recognition, those who use cheating plug-ins have a higher chance of getting banned and there is also a report button added to the spectator mode, along with basic information and results screens. There is now a new season page that will display all season players and relevant data like highest tier reached and more. Gameplay improvements include a better chat system, clan rankings, airdrop items, friends list and more

The company states,“Tencent Games today also released even more impressive statistics for PUBG MOBILE, as the game continues to dominate the mobile market with more than 20 million daily active users (not including Japan, Korea and China). In Season 2, the previous 14-week period of games, more than 130 million players from more than 200 countries earned themselves 864,425,575 chicken dinners.”
