Devs will be using this downtime to update the servers with the new map and content for launch tomorrow. Players will be prompted to update their game versions tomorrow to be able to play the new Sanhok map.

For those that are not yet aware of what to expect from the new update here s a recap of the new things coming to PUBG Mobile with the 0.8.0 update:

New Map: Sanhok

Apart from the existing two maps Erangel and Miramar PUBG Mobile is set to get the the highly-anticipated Sanhok added as the third map for classic mode. The new map is based on tropical rainforests of South-East Asia, and is significantly smaller than the other two maps in the game, at about half of the size. The number of players starting a game will still be 100, so this will lead to a larger concentration of players in a smaller area with more guns available, quicker intense fighting, and as a result, quicker games.

New Vehicles: Bulletproof UAZ and Muscle Car

A couple of new large vehicles have been added to the game as well, which are larger and offer better protection and performance while driving in the game. The UAZ is a variant of the SUV that is already present in the game, while the muscle car is among the better looking vehicles in the game.

New Weapon: QBZ

The QBZ is an assault rifle that uses the game s standard 5.56mm ammo. It will likely be replacing the Scar-L in the Sanhok map.

Other features

Some additional, relatively smaller features are a part of the new version, including giving the player apples to throw at others in the pre-game waiting area, and changes to the UI and settings including limits on auto-pickup of ammo. Interestingly, the 8X scope will no longer randomly spawn on the Sanhok map, although it will be available in air drops. The M24 rifle too won t be available with the crate drops.
