In a bid to celebrate this, PUBG Corporation has kicked off PUBG Mobile season 3 with the introduction of a Royale Pass, which provides players with cosmetic unlocks for every new level earned, somewhat similar to Fortnite’s Battle Pass.
The new PUBG Mobile 0.8.0 update adds a new mini-map – Sanhok – which was earlier only available in Xbox and PC versions of the game. Additionally, new measures have been introduced to stop hackers from intoxicating the game for other players, and a few other additions to make the gameplay more interesting.
