PUBG Mobile has rolled out its Version 2.8 Update, bringing a wave of fresh content to the popular battle royale game.
Released on September 5, this update rewards early birds; players who download it before September 17 will receive a generous bonus package comprising 3,000 BP, 100 AG, and a stylish Beat Pirate Helmet for three days.
To access this gaming extravaganza, simply visit either the Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store, and you’re in for a wild ride. But what’s lurking in the shadows of this update? Let’s dissect the highlights from the patch notes.
Zombies Are on the Edge of Taking Over
The star of this update is undoubtedly the themed mode dubbed “Zombie’s Edge,” set to captivate players from September 5 through November 6. This spine-tingling mode encompasses Erangel, Livik, and Miramar, promising to retain the essence of the core Battle Royale experience while injecting some fresh blood.
Enter the ominous Aerolith Lab, a new location teeming with perilous creatures such as Mutants, Berserkers, and Rippers. But the real showstopper here is the Rage Berserker, a fearsome entity that emerges after a countdown. Its power scales with the number of mutants the lab absorbs, making it imperative to eliminate these monstrosities before the lab turns gluttonous.
Now, why should you go head-to-head with a Rage Berserker? Defeating this behemoth unlocks a trove of incredible supplies, ensuring your survival in the battlefield.
