Anicent Secret Special Mode

The new Ancient Secret themed gameplay can be selected from the main menu via the Mode Selection screen. Players who activate the new mode can observe and explore an ominous "Ancient Secret" building rising on Miramar and Erangel. This massive two-story structure begins each game at ground-level, but then begins to float and follow the play circle. In addtion to the ancient structure, players can experience the following features through the new game mode:

  • New Boss Battle – A secretive boss awaits in a sealed room on the second floor of the structure, hiding rich rewards for players that defeat it in combat
  • Small Ruins Environment – Players can traverse small ruins that spawn randomly throughout the map, concealing crates and puzzles
  • Slate puzzle – Players can now test their merit with a new interactive Ancient Slate puzzle.

To immerse players in the new environment, the cool and stylish Golden Pharaoh X-Suit Outfit set is also available to unlock, alongside additional Warrior of Ra, Warrior of Nut, Underworld Guide, and Mummy costumes. For the first time ever, outfits can be upgraded up to six levels to access additional benefits, including:

  • Outfit appearance upgrade
  • Exclusive entry emotes

New Arena Gameplay

The all-new Team Gun Game offers four vs. four gameplay with Arena mode starting weapons. As players defeat opponents, their weapons are gradually upgraded. The first team to use the final weapon, the notorious pan, claims the Chicken Dinner. Team Gun Game is available to play every weekend, from Friday to Sunday. Players can also enjoy Team Gun Game on the all-new Library map. As the first-ever indoor map in PUBG MOBILE, Library boasts a symmetrical layout with three assault routes: left, right and center. Unique positions on platforms, in doorways or behind bookshelves offer competitors advantages for strategic positioning, and provides players with weaker weapons a fighting chance. In addition to the new Team Gun Game mode and Library map, today's content update delivers several additional features, including:

  • New Arena Attachment – The Barrel Extender muzzle attachment can now be added to most Sniper Rifles, Rifles and Sub-machine Guns. It increases the firearm's effective range and minimizes damage reduction due to distance
