The highly-awaited 0.14.0 update of PUBG Mobile has been rolled out on the respective app stores. This update brings in a lot of new features including a new UI with a new main menu theme and a new zombie mode. All these updates were pushed out in the beta version last week and it has now been publicly launched.
‘Infection Mode’ is the latest zombie mode that has arrived on PUBG Mobile. This is going to be a player versus player mode where players will be randomly divided into Defenders and Zombies. Defenders are regular human players who will be able to use weapons to shoot down the Zombies. But don’t worry, Zombies will be given special abilities with cooldown counters and they can use melee attacks on the human players.
Several updates have been introduced to the main menu with improved visual effects along with a designed Daily Mission menu. The character system has also been given some changes along with regular bug fixes and improvements.
Here’s the full list of patch notes for the 0.14.0 update:
Android Resources Extension Pack
Reduced the size of the Android installation package and added Resource Expansion Pack, which contains some rarely used equipment and resources that are displayed with a placeholder icon unless the Pack is downloaded.
Mode Selection UI adjusted:
a. Added tier information in Classic
b. Matchmaking and Settings are now on the same page
c. Visual effects improved
Daily Mission redesigned: (Not available on the test server yet, some missions can not switch perspective now, and there is a temporary key for the test)
a. The number of Daily Missions are reduced and rewards have been adjusted;
b. Daily Missions, other than the login mission, are released randomly. If players are not satisfied with their current Daily Missions, they can switch to other random missions in the mission pool up to three times a day.
New Feature: Infection Mode
This is an asymmetric PVP mode. After the match starts, players are randomly divided into Zombies and Defenders. While Defenders can use firearms, Zombies can only use melee attacks and abilities with cooldown time.
Zombies can be revived after being defeated by Defenders, while Defenders will be turned into Zombies after being killed by Zombies. If all Defenders are infected, zombies win; if even just 1 Defender survives, then the Defenders win.
a. Each player gets a character at the beginning.
b. Characters start with one skill that is only effective within EvoGround.
