PUBG Mobile Update Adds Arcade Mode, Training Grounds, and iOS 3D Touch Firing

Highlights

  • PUBG Mobile gets new game modes
  • Nitrous Oxide has been added to its cars
  • The Training Grounds allows users to hone their skills prior to a match

PUBG Mobile has received a massive patch that brings a slew of new additions to the game. These include Arcade Mode, Training Grounds, and 3D Touch-enabled firing for iOS devices. Arcade Mode is a new 28-player mode that lets players go solo or team up with friends. Each match has one of six variations with its own theme that limits weapons to a single type, removes them completely or have players access all weapons and gear. As the name suggests, the Training Ground allow players to check out all weapons and items as a means of honing skills prior to a match.

Also nestled in the game's voluminous patch notes is the option to use 3D Touch on iOS devices to fire weapons. This PUBG Mobile update brings the game to version 0.4.0 and is available now on Android and iOS. Patch notes as follows:
