PUBG Corp. and Tencent have rolled out a new PUBG Mobile update that adds a first-person mode to the iOS and Android version of the multiplayer battle royale shooter PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.
The addition of the PUBG Mobile first-person view, however, is far from being the only purpose of the new update. It includes several other additions and changes that may help the game better challenge Fortnite Mobile.
PUBG Mobile First-Person Mode
The first-person view arrives to PUBG Mobile with the new update. The new mode will come in handy during intense one-on-one encounters or in situations when accuracy is very important.
With the update, players will be able to freely switch between third-person view and first-person view. PUBG Mobile players may follow the strategy used by PC players who use the third-person view to move and look around their surroundings and then switch to first-person view when needed in certain situations.
The first-person mode is so popular in the PC version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds that PUBG Corp. rolled out first-person only servers.
PUBG Mobile 0.6.0 Update
The new patch, named the PUBG Mobile 0.6.0 update, also introduces Arcade Mode: Mini-Zone. In this mode, 100 players are dropped into a smaller area compared to the Classic Mode, with triple the number of available weapons.
Also coming to PUBG Mobile are the Armory, where players can take a look at weapon statistics and compare performance data between weapon accessories, and Emotes, with new movements and gestures for players to use on their opponents.
The PUBG Mobile 0.6.0 update also launches Royale Pass, which offers daily and weekly missions for players to complete, earn points, and boost their rank. The player with the highest Royale Pass level at the start of each match will also be able to choose the finish of the airplane from where the players jump off.
Other contents of the latest PUBG Mobile update include a new user interface for pistols, an option to mute individual teammates, a post-match results screen, the ability to link two social networks, and new items in the shop.
'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' Vs 'Fortnite'
The rivalry between PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite extends to smartphones with PUBG Mobile and Fortnite Mobile.
The new PUBG Mobile update is part of PUBG Corp.'s mission to take back the battle royale throne from Fortnite. Also part of the strategy is the first PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds sale on Steam, just in time for the launch of the third map, Sanhok.
