PUBG Mobile was testing a new game mode and some new events in the version 0.13.0 of the game, which is currently in beta. However, stable version of the game is currently on 0.12.0 (or 0.12.5 for some) and the game developers have announced that the version 0.13.0 of PUBG Mobile will be rolled out for users on June 12. The game was taken offline today for server maintenance from 5:30 AM to 13:30 PM IST to get it ready for tomorrow’s update. The new update will also bring a new Team Deathmatch mode in the game, along with a Godzilla theme and some related events. PUBG Mobile has collaborated with Godzilla: King of the Monsters movie and added some Godzilla-themed easter eggs. You can read more about where to find these easter eggs here.
Ahead of the version 0.13.0 rollout of PUBG Mobile, the game developers have posted all the new changes coming to the game online. As mentioned earlier, the most notable addition will be of a new Team Deathmatch mode that will show up under EvoGround. The new mode has been added soon after Call of Duty: Mobile went under public beta testing and the title also features a multiplayer Team Deathmatch mode. In our quick look at the new mode in PUBG Mobile, we said, “The mode starts players off on an equal footing, unlike Call of Duty: Mobile where high level players get access to a much better arsenal right at the get go.”
Alongside the new game mode, the lobby background will now feature a Godzilla theme. There will also be many themed events and rewards once the update rolls out. The new update features some improvements to Survive Till Dawn and Darkest Night mode, like the addition of four new zombies that will replace old zombies. You can go through the complete version 0.13.0 patch notes below.
