PUBG Mobile Now Has Over 20 Million Daily Active Users Globally
PUBG is developed by Tencent Holdings Ltd. and is available in a free-to-play variant. The game was released in March 2018.

PUBG Mobile now has 20 million daily active users globally. Interestingly, these numbers don't include players from China, Japan, and Korea. The 'Battle Royale' style of gaming has caught on and PUBG is acquiring a massive number of users. PUBG Mobile announced its latest achievement on Twitter with a video showing a celebratory dance. With six months of PUBG Mobile on Android and iOS, the game successfully completed season 2. During PUBG Mobile Season 2, more than 130 million players from over 200 countries earned themselves 864,425,575 chicken dinners.

PUBG Mobile on Android and iOS has recently got an update that brings a new map "Sanhok" to the game. In addition to the map, PUBG Corporation has announced new weapons and vehicles, anti-cheating measures as well as other improvements. The 'Patch Notes 0.8.0' are available to download starting September 12 in a phased update. The Sanhok map is also available to download within the game. For this, players can enter 'Game Modes' within the game and then proceed to download the Sanhok map.

'Sanhok' map introduced in the all-new patch notes is a rainforest, as mentioned in a recent PUBG Mobile blogpost. Accompanying the map, are new weapons and attachments including a Flare Gun (that calls a super airdrop), QBZ and Duckbill. New vehicles to be found in the map are Bulletproof UAZ and a convertible muscle car. The update also comes with new features like Achievements, Clan Perks, Rankings and Titles, a Royale Pass, Lucky Air Drops after a match, more Season Data, customisable pick-up settings and a couple of other add-ons.

PUBG had recently announced a 'Training Mode' for its players to sharpen their skills in the game by playing in a new 2x2km map. The map promises a practice in all aspects of PUBG, including driving, racing, parachuting, throwables and CQC.
