PUBG Mobile 0.14.0 Update New Features and Improvements
- PUBG Mobile Infection Mode
Ever wanted to play as a Zombie in PUBG Mobile? Now it is soon going to be possible after the PUBG Mobile 0.14.0 Update. The new Infection Mode will be added to Evo Grounds. In the Infection Mode, all the players will be divided randomly into two groups, The Zombies and The Defenders.
The Defenders will be the uninfected players who will be capable of using firearms to kill the zombies. Whereas, opposite to the defenders, the Zombies will have various abilities and would not be able to use any firearms. The basic idea behind the whole infection mode is quite simple and sounds like a scene from a classic apocalyptic movie. If the Zombie players knock any defender out then the defender will end up turning into a zombie.
If all the defenders get converted into zombies then the zombie team will win, but if any defender can survive for the whole match, that is for 15 minutes then the defenders will win. All the infection mode matches will be played on the new Last Harbor map. The Infection Mode sounds quite fun and would sure add some punch to the game. What is even more exciting is that you can even play the Infection mode in custom rooms as well.
- Revamped User Interface and Settings
PUBG Mobile has been customizing the user interface of the game with almost every update in order to make the game more user friendly. 0.14.0 Update is no different. As soon as you will update the game you will notice the new home screen and adjustments in settings and modes selection menu. Now you can easily control what map to play, what map to download and other minor tweaks for a better overall experience.

One major feature that the 0.14.0 Update will bring is the PUBG Mobile Resource Extension Pack for Android. With this, the complete download size of the PUBG Mobile has been reduced.

One will have the option to download the extension packs that will contain rarely used equipment and other resources. These extra resources will be displayed with a placeholder icon on the home screen and will disappear when the extension pack will be downloaded.
- PUBG Mobile Character System
A new character named “Victor” is coming in the 0.14.0 update. Anyone who updates to the latest version of PUBG Mobile can collect the new character from the Character under Workshop. The new characters will have special abilities which make them better or worse than opponent’s character. Though, Victor will possess a special ability that will reduce the reloading time for SMG in EvoGround, without affecting the classic mode. The new character can be leveled up, level 10 being the highest level with rewards on each level reached. With all new outfits, emotes and voices the new character system will sure be a lot of fun.
