It’s hasn’t been that long since PUBG Mobile saw the release of Season 5 and update 0.10.5 on Android and iOS.
But it looks like another big expansion is coming to the game this week.
Tencent has been teasing the release of a new Resident Evil 2 zombies expansion for some time.
A collaboration between the two games was first announced in December during a PUBG Mobile eSports event.
And earlier this month Tencent launched a Resi 2 inspired duos celebrations, while also hinting that something bigger was being planned.
“In order to celebrate the highly anticipated Resident Evil 2 coming out on January 25, we are celebrating now with Duos event!
“We look forward to the full release of the collaboration content later this month and can’t wait to share more with you.”
And it appears we’re not far off that next big PUBG Mobile update arriving on Android and iOS.
It’s unclear precisely what this new event will include, but fans are hoping for some kind of zombies mode.
Zombies have been found on certain maps, hinting that something like this is being planned.
But the rules of the new mode have yet to be announced, and it’s still unclear just how big Tencent and Capcom are preparing to go.
There’s a good chance that the new mode will have some kind of XP bonus to help celebrate the launch of Resident Evil 2.
When it comes to a release date, it seems likely we’ll learn more in the next 24hrs.
It would make sense for the new Resi 2 celebration to launch either just before or on the day of the new Remake’s launch on PS4 and Xbox One.
So that would mean something happening on Friday, January 25.
PUBG Mobile is estimated to have more than 200 million downloads and 30 million concurrent users worldwide.
The game’s most recent update allows players to scavenge Erangel, Miramar and Sanhok for the new MK47 weapon and use classic voice commands from the settings menu.
This month’s PUBG MOBILE update also includes these new key features:
New Royale Pass and Ranked Mode – Players can pick up the Royale Pass Season 5 to experience premium outfits, emotes and participate in the Ranked Mode Season 5 with additional rewards
New Weapon and Attachment – The MK47 burst and single-fire assault rifle is now available for players along with an all-new laser sight to help reduce spread when firing from the hip
Classic Voice Commands Are Back – “Get in the car” never sounded so sweet. Players now have the option of selecting “Classic” voice command options in the settings menu
Gameplay Improvements – Several in-game adjustments and updates have been made for players, including shop adjustments, accessing supplies from the main menu, and much more.
