Royale Pass Season 11
With the new season, comes a new Royale Pass. The Season 11 pass is still grabbing all the headlines in PUBG Mobile news since everyone is excited for the upcoming season. There is the Free Pass, open to all players for collecting their rewards. The next tier is the Elite Pass which upon unlocking, immediately gets you 4000 UC as well as better rewards and faster ranking up.
Finally, there is the Elite Pass Plus which will cost 1,800 UC and instantly gets you 10,000 UC and a direct level up to Level 25. This will give you everything with the Elite Pass and faster rankings and rewards as well.
There are 100 levels you can reach in the Royale Pass just like previous seasons. Keep playing and leveling up to redeem those rewards! Several new skins have been released with this new Royale Pass so make sure you collect them!
The Vikendi map also received a new kind of Snowmobile, which is exclusive only to the map. Two people can ride the vehicle and it is quite fast. It is faster than the original but it can also take more damage, so be careful riding.
The Royale Pass gets also gets multi-option missions that support additional mission objectives in Team Arena or Payload mode. If you complete these objectives, new rewards from this season will be awarded.
New Arena Map – Town
The new patch has also introduced a new Arena Map called “Town”. The map features a Domination mode, which is a 4v4 battle. Players are assigned to either the Red Team or the Blue Team and the objective of the mode is to capture enemy bases. There are also Super Weapon Crates available. You can defeat your enemies with supercharged Super Weapons.
At the beginning of the game, one random base will be activated. The second and third base will be activated when either one of the teams captures them. The first team to capture 3 bases (two plus the initial base) will win the game.
Old TDM map Warehouse is back
On popular request, the original version of the TDM Warehouse map has been restored and converted into the Arena Training map. So players can pick up any weapon and practice instead of waiting at the loadout. This is only available on the Warehouse map. For other maps, players will have to use whatever weapons they have.
Other than these, there have been several bug fixes that have been implemented in the PUBG Mobile client. There have been improved security features as well as an option to download maps.
