PUBG Mobile version 0.4.0 update overview
Release date: April 19, 2018
The first major update to PUBG Mobile adds an Arcade Mode, which lowers the number of players on the map from 100 to 28. Unlike regular PUBG Mobile matches, Arcade Mode picks one of six variations for players to use for the entire match: shotguns, sniper rifles, all weapons, melee, pistols, and item heaven.
The update also introduces Training Grounds, another new mode that lets you try out all of the game’s weapons and vehicles. Unless you leave early, you get 30 minutes in Training Grounds and are joined by several other players. You can read more about the 0.4.0 update here.
