PUBG Mobile is getting a new beta update giving us an early look at what players can expect in the near future. The biggest highlight of the update is a new mode called Metro Royale. PUBG Mobile had made an announcement back in August about its collaboration with Metro Exodus, the popular horror-themed first-person shooter (FPS) that is available on PC, PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia. The new 1.1 beta update arrives just days after the patch notes were shared on the official PUBG Mobile Discord channel. According to the patch notes, the new Metro Royale mode brings new maps, a pre-configured weapons and equipment loadout, a special black market place, a new weapon called Tikhar, along with some new challenges.
As for the regular classic mode, the new PUBG Mobile 1.1 beta update brings back the Winter mode that we saw late last year. Most importantly, the game is getting a new Spike Trap item, and the ability to throw melee items at opponents. The former seems to be a tool to disable vehicles while the option to throw items comes from the original PC version of PUBG.
We managed to install the beta update and hopped in a quick round of the new Metro Royale mode. It is an interesting addition to the game and seems to be inspired by Badlanders. The main objective, from what we could understand, is to go in the game with a loadout, hunt down enemies, get more loot, get to the extraction point, and then sell and upgrade your loadout in the marketplace. Considering this is a beta version, we mostly encountered bots that were fairly easy to hunt. Once you return from the game, you get a value for the amount of loot you collected. You can sell those items to upgrade to more powerful weapons and equipment. This mode goes beyond the existing offering in PUBG Mobile by offering up to six levels of armor protection and backpack as well as advanced levels of weapons that you can unlock. Read from source….
