The MK47 Mutant is already available on the PC, and the console versions of the game, and so is the Tukshai vehicle which can exclusively be found on the Sanhok map. A laser sight attachment is also expected to be launched for the weapon. Erangel and Miramar maps are all expected to get dynamic weather, which means the weather can change to rain and fog anytime.

These changes are expected to be launched with the upcoming 0.10.5 update of PUBG Mobile, and were uncovered by two PUBG Mobile YouTubers Game Lovers and Mr. Ghost Gaming. It is speculated that the next update might hit the servers sometime between January 18 to 20. Though some of the additions like dynamic weather, the new weapon, vehicle and attachment will probably be added with the 0.11.0 update.

As for the Zombie mode, Tencent Games had announced that it is collaborating with the Resident Evil 2 remake team RE_Games. This was announced on stage at the PUBG Mobile Star Challenge tournament, and then followed up by a tweet and a video on the official Twitter handle of the game.
Though the company has not shared any more details about what exactly it is collaborating over, it seems we may be seeing signs of what may be coming up later in the game. Tencent Games has apparently added what appears to be dead zombies to the game, and players are even reporting seeing bloodstains on the walls of houses in the Erangel map.
Besides this the devs could also be looking at special themed skins from the Resident Evil game that would psyche up the players, along with a special event that will be centered around those themed skins. This will help Resident Evil get in the popular groove of games while making a bit of money for the sale of the skins. As for Tencent Games, this could just be something fresh for the players of PUBG and some neat profit.
