As expected, the major update introduces a whole host of new features to the game as well as a number of bug fixes and improvements. The company notes that the update will take up about 1.97GB of storage space on Android and 2.21GB on iOS. In other words, players will have to make quite a bit of space if they are running out of storage space in their phones.

Some spoilers here as we’ll be giving you a run down of some of the top five key new features from the updates.

Blue Hole Mode

This new game mode will be a new addition to the EvoGround Arcade and will be available at a later date.

This game mode will be set in Erangel and is pretty similar to the classic mode. However, instead of only one circle, there will be two circles. The outer circle will represent the safe zone, while the inner circle will harm the health of whoever is inside it.

However, the inner circle will also represent the next circle. So once the outer zone finishes shrinking to the inner circle, a new inner zone will appear. This will go on till the match ends.

Cheer Park

The Cheer Park can accommodate up to 20 players at a time and has most of the same features as the Training Ground. Players can use this downtime to view information about other plays as well as chat and interact with them.

Players can also invite their friends and roast chicken in cheer park. Other activities in Cheer Park include 1v1 duels, play the Hunt game that was featured in the anniversary celebrations, and show off their skills at the shooting range.

New Weapon

This weapon fires 9mm bullets and offers a default magazine capacity of 50 rounds. It has three firing modes, single, burst and full-auto. In terms of attachments, the weapon can be equipped with muzzle attachments and the Laser Sight. It can also accommodate scopes up to 6x.

There is also a new variant of the Win94 rifle. This new version of the weapons will come with a 2.7x scope attached as default, similar to the VSS. This new weapon will only spawn in Miramar.

Mad Miramar

Speaking of some weapons being one available in the Miramar – unarguably the biggest part of the update, called Mad Miramar.

As per the patch notes, there have been some visual updates as well as some new elements. An Oasis has been added to the northern part of the map, while to the northwest are some Urban Ruins. The developers have also added more housing areas, roads and resources.

There is also the addition of a race track that runs through the whole map. This should make driving on the map more fun. Speaking of driving, the game will now feature a Golden Mirado. However, only one instance of the vehicle will spawn in the map, making it a rare prize for players who want to ride into battle with some style.

Vending machines have also been added to the game. These machines will dispense Energy Drinks and Painkillers and those who are lucky might get as many as eight drinks at a time.
The update also brings a number of visual updates, both in the map and in the main menu. There is now a chance for the Miramar map and the main menu to be under the effect of a sand storm.

Meanwhile, the main lobby will now feature a Miramar theme and music. Further, players will also get to earn new achievements and complete events for rewards.

New Results Screen UI

Last on the list but not the least is a whole new and detailed update to the results screen.

It will now allow players to view data on each weapon they used in the game. They will also be able to check and compare statistics with others in the same tier.

More updates…

There have also been a whole host of other changes and fixes that are aimed at improving the gameplay experience for PUBG Mobile players.
