Update: version 0.4.0 of PUBG Mobile adds new features
Tencent Games now is rolling out version 0.4.0 of PUBG Mobile, n roughly 242MB update that brings new modes, a new setting, and some optimizations for the popular battle royale game.
Arcade Mode is a less crowded way to battle
First up is Arcade Mode, which lowers the number of players on the map from 100 to 28. Instead of the regular variety of weapons available in battle royale games, Arcade Mode picks one of six types for players to use for the entire match: shotguns, sniper rifles, all weapons, melee, pistols, and item heaven.
This stripped down mode is meant to attract new players and ease them into PUBG Mobile. A good choice for those who might find the full-fat game mode full of confusing options and too many opponents.
Training Grounds helps newbies git gud
Another helpful mode for beginners included in the update is Training Grounds. While in Training Grounds, you cannot die or take damage. This mode lets you easily try out all of the game’s weapons and vehicles. Unless you leave early, you get 30 minutes to play around in Training Grounds and are joined by several other players.
New dusk setting and optimizations
Now you can select to play in 'dusk', a twilight setting that reduces visibility and makes the game a little tougher. The dusk is not available in Training Grounds, however.
Finally, the update includes over 20 optimization tweaks, which should help the game run better on a variety of devices.
