PUBG Mobile is back online and Sanhok is here. The new map has been shown off along with the new 0.8.0 Patch Notes after eight hours of server maintenance overnight. Well, you will also feel praised to know that PUBG has made the biggest record of one million concurrent player on September 9th.
The games latest trailer can be viewed below. And in keeping with the small map, Tencent has kept the video’s description brief, telling fans:
“Welcome to Sanhok! Enjoy the battle royale in this 4KM* 4KM jungle map.”
Short and sweet.
Want to know when it launches? Unfortunately, it’s not today, despite the small bit of confusion in the original messaging. It’s actually rolling out tomorrow, September 12.
Luckily, Tencent’s Community Team has given an update on the release, telling fans:
“You will be able to get the update on September 12 between 00:00 and 08:00 UTC,” the developers told fans on Reddit.
“For now, we are still making sure that the update is good to roll out globally hence the Phillippines and the UK first before we open up the floodgates.
“As for the separate map download – once you update the game, you will still have to initiate in-game download of the map itself. This is because we did quite a bit of optimization on not only Sanhok but all 3 maps – and hence heftier download within the game. But we hope that the end result will be to your benefit!
“Thank you so much for your patience so far. We can’t wait to hear your feedback once you get your hands on the 0.8.0.”
Whilst we wait, keep reading further down for those all-important Patch Notes.
