Popular mobile battle royale game PUBG Mobile recently concluded the PUBG Mobile Club Open finals in Berlin. PUBG Mobile Global General Manager Vincent Wang had some announcements to make at the tournament. Like previous year Godzilla collaboration, PUBG Mobile makers are collaborating with AMC’s TV show The Walking Dead later this year. We previously reported that the game is getting a new zombie mode. But it is not clear if this mode is the same as the one Vincent Wang is talking about. The announcement was accompanied by a short clip where a zombie approaches a Level 3 helmet on a bench.

Last year PUBG Mobile collaborated with Resident Evil 2 to bring its zombie mode which has inspired two distinct modes. But this time around there is no news about how the collaboration will work. Tencent Games could introduce the cosmetic items that the major characters of The Walking Dead sport. They might even introduce some of the major characters themselves. Besides these, Wang also announced that the Erangel map will be getting a makeover. The PC version of the Erangel map already received a makeover in the last update. A short video showed us how the new Erangel might look. Here’s a look at the details of the finals.
