Version 3.0 is kicking off strong with PUBG Mobile’s Shadow Force update, which completely takes over Erangel, Livik, and Sanhok in the mobile battle royale. As well as heaps of new content, this update introduces welcome quality-of-life changes and events.

PUBG Mobile is one of the best mobile battle royale games on the market, and this month’s version 3.0 update was highly anticipated by fans. The themed game mode, Shadow Force, is the crown jewel of the update, engulfing familiar maps and introducing a snowy military base location for Metro Royale. Of course, Shadow Force also lets us play with the Shadow Blade melee weapon, Skytether Hook, and Proxy Scout gadget.

Descend on the Arctic Base in Metro Royale soon after the update goes live to see if you’re skilled enough to take down its tank and commander enemies. Look out for the stealthy high-pressure air rifle, area destruction, zip line mechanics, and much more. World of Wonder, PUBG Mobile’s creative mode, also receives a refresh in this update that adds a healthy dose of customization options and gameplay devices to level creators’ toolkits.
