PUBG Mobile, developed by Chinese company Tencent, has just come out with a huge update. The new update 0.4.0, which is now available for download on Android and iOS, brings Arcade Mode, Training Grounds, and many more gameplay adjustments.

Arcade Mode will essentially be a 28-player mode where players can join solo, duo or in squads. The Arcade Mode selects one of the six possible variations of possibilities randomly. And by possibilities it means a game where players only have access to assault rifles or one where they begin with a full inventory. The other mode that has been added is Training grounds where players can basically try out all the weapons to get a better feel of them for when they use them in a real match.

Besides these new modes there are some new adjustments and additions as well, which include a ‘follow’ option that can be used before parachuting and after landing. Doors can now be opened automatically and there are new animations as well. Here’s the full set of update log for you to check out:
