The update is live & the royale pass is coming soon. This is everything you need to know.
PUBG Mobile Season 11 was an enormous success, but all good things must come to an end, especially in battle royale games.
With PUBG Mobile season 12 coming in hot next week, let’s take a look at what the new season is going to bring!
PUBG Mobile Season 11 might feel fresh in the minds of players, but that hasn’t stopped news making its way to the internet.
With so many new features and rewards to come, here’s everything you need to know about the new season.
PUBG Mobile Season 12 will release on 9 March 2020.
It has been confirmed that PUBG Mobile Season 11 has now ended, with update 1.17.0 being rolled out around the world.
Each season lasts roughly two months, so we can expect Season 12 to run until May.
Updates To Erangel Map
The oldest map in PUBG will be getting a few notable updates.
There will be changes to where vehicles and weapons are left and some environmental updates.
As of now, the death replay feature is only available in the PC version of PUBG, and it has been a gripe for mobile gamers for a while. Thankfully that looks like changing.

When Season 12 drops the killcam will come with it, giving you the chance to see where you went wrong and improve your game for next time.
A new mode is coming where it’s not only other players that can kill you.
Players will need to hunt for food by killing animals and potentially light fires to battle the chill.
The same as the closing circle, there will be a cold wave that will drain health until the player takes shelter.
This will be the harshest test of your survival instincts yet, as you battle both the elements and other players to come out on top.
A brand new double-barrel shotgun named DBS will make its debut in the game. The DBS will be best suited to close combat situations and is sure to blow away the competition when it enters the game.
2nd anniversary loot
PUBG Mobile is nearing its second birthday, which means we are sure to get some spectacular anniversary loot in Season 12.
Skins for weapons and players are sure to feature, along with new parachutes and more.

Rumours of grenade skins and an Uzi with attachable scopes certainly have our attention!
Royale Pass Details
Most recently a few items were leaked from the Royale Pass.
After obtaining the pass, players will immediately receive a skin for the QBZ assault rifle.
The final tier reward is a Robotic skin and as the theme of both items will be the “anniversary special”, neon lights will be covering the number “12”.
2nd anniversary content
We now know that amusement parks will be coming to the Erangel map as part of the anniversary celebrations!
This is set to arrive on the classic Erangel map starting on 12 March.
In this one, old school amusement parks are going to appear randomly in three locations on the map. These parks are going to have Arcade Machines that can be activated with tokens.

Games include the Hunt Game, Space War, What’s in the Box, Shooting Range, Trampoline, and Reverse Bungee.
Colour blind mode
We love seeing developers making games accessible to all, and with a new colour-blind mode there will be more colour options for in-game indicators, such as Poison, Smoke, and Auxiliary Lines.
Hardcore Mode returns for the ultimate realistic experience.
In this mode, you’ll essentially have no help from the system – which means say goodbye to automatic reloading, weapon pickups and door opennings.
Sounds like a small hindrance – but when you’re being pinned down by heavy gunfire – every little helps (or hurts!).
It’s certainly looking like this Season is going to live up to expectations – we can’t wait to play!
