“Celebrate the 2nd anniversary of PUBG MOBILE with Royale Pass reward upgrades. Choose one ultimate set out of two. Anniversary theme items are returning to the Shop, don’t miss out!
“Improved the Purchase and Upgrade interface display and added support for Exclusive Vouchers (available from events).
“Players who haven’t purchased a Royale Pass in the past 3 seasons (9, 10 and 11) and players who registered from season 10 but haven’t purchased a Royale Pass before will receive bonus benefits when they purchase this season.”
But while the launch of Season 12 and the Royale Pass is scheduled for March 9, other changes are also coming later this week.
This includes new content to celebrate the second anniversary of PUBG Mobile on Android and iOS. These celebrations will start on Thursday, March 12, and will look to entertain fans in-game in new ways.
A big part of this will be the Erangel Amusement Park Mode, which will be available during matchmaking in Classic Mode. In this mode, old school amusement parks will appear randomly in three locations on the Classic Erangel map.
There will also be interactive Arcade Machines placed in the amusement parks and major towns, which can be activated with Tokens. Players will be able to find Hunt Game, Space War, What’s in the Box, Shooting Range, Trampoline and Reverse Bungee.
High-rise Reverse Bungee machines will appear in the middle of the amusement parks, with players able to launch into the air to use their parachute and glide again.
Tencent has also promised that on March 12, the Anniversary Celebration Event will allow all players on the server to work together to achieve event goals and receive rewards.
Individual Events will allow players to claim rewards after completing the corresponding missions, with event rankings also granting players various rewards corresponding to their points ranking.
One final piece of content planned for Season 12 has not been given a release date and isn’t expected to arrive on March 12. The new Arctic Mode is based on Classic Mode gameplay, and adds new arctic storms that appear periodically in Vikendi.
Players will need to maintain their body temperature through various means, otherwise, their health will continuously decrease when their body temperature is low.
