As far as features are concerned, the bulk of PUBG Mobile update 0.12.0 focuses on additions to Zombies. Jungle Style magazines offer faster reloading and bigger clip sizes, but Zombies will be more deadly now that they can climb over low walls and roofs. Old safe spaces on the map are now fully open to terror, which should make matches more suspenseful. Zombies mode may have debuted in partnership with Resident Evil 2, but the focus of today's update suggests it'll be a main fixture of PUBG Mobile for the foreseeable future. Especially now that challenges are fully integrated, there's lots of incentive to keep on playing.

There aren't many overall bug fixes this time around, but there are a couple notes that fans should appreciate. If you're tired of mindlessly tapping on doors to no avail, the tweaks in that area will be a godsend. Enhanced emulator detection also ensures everyone enjoys the game on a level playing field. PUBG Mobile update 0.12.0 isn't massive, but it offers a good amount of content for a subset of players.

PUBG Mobile update 0.12.0 is rolling out now on Android and iOS.
