New gameplay, weapon, Metro Royale content and more begin to drop into PUBG MOBILE
Malaysian players and communities can now experience a new gameplay as part of the latest Version 1.2 content update. In this version, a mystical power has descended on the hit mobile game PUBG MOBILE. The popular Erangel map has received ancient runes from another world which bestow players with three special powers. Players can also tout the new FAMAS variable-fire assault rifle, boasting 5.56mm ammo with reduced recoil. Furthermore, there will be much more excitement brought by the content update which is available now for free via the App Store and Google Play.
In the new Runic Power Theme Gameplay, players can queue for a unique version of Erangel, where they will have the choice between one of three rune energies. After selecting their rune, each player will be granted a summon and a boost skill, which both can be consumed to provide strategic advantages on the battlefield. All rune skills can be reobtained by looting Erangel’s vast terrain. Similarly, runes can be experienced in PUBG MOBILE’s Cheer Park, where players can complete daily rune missions to earn fresh rewards.
Runic Power has 3 rune and each will grant players an element power with two different skills. First, Flame Rune where players can summon a wheel of flame that rolls slowly forwards, dealing burn damage to afflicted players. An additional boost skill adds a burning enhancement to ammo for a brief period. Arctic Rune, giving boost skill that adds a freezing enhancement to ammo, reducing healing effectiveness, players that receive Arctic Rune power can also summon a 3×3 grid of ice wall for mid-battle protection. Lastly, Wind Rune, granted with wind power, players can summon a semi-transparent shield of wind that reduces bullet damage from weapons shot outside of it. Besides, the boost skill increases movement speed and reduces reload time for a short time
In addition to the new features in Classic Mode, PUBG MOBILE’s ongoing collaboration with popular first-person shooter Metro Exodus intensifies with a fresh chapter. In the new Metro Royale: Honor chapter, players can obtain Honor by defeating enemies and collecting in-game items, which both increase Honor levels. Honor can be accumulated to unlock special voice packs, outfits and other permanent rewards.
“We are happy to announce our new version 1.2 patch that features a new thrill and more excitement. The update brought Runic Power Mode with a Cheer Park Runic Power Themed Event, Honor building in Metro Royale into the new weapon, FAMAS rifle. In giving the best gaming experience for all communities and players, upcoming content also has been scheduled, including Royale Pass Season 17 and the new EvoGround additions,” said Jenny Zhuang, PUBG MOBILE Marketing Manager.
The highly anticipated Royale Pass Season 17 is also set to arrive in PUBG MOBILE, boasting a RUNIC POWER theme. Besides, a new game variant of PUBG MOBILE’s popular EvoGround Mode is also set to touch down in February, delivering high-tech Power Armor and Matrix Events on the condensed Livik map.
