Kafton has confirmed that the new PUBG Mobile 1.8 update will be rolled out today, January 12th.

This may catch a few fans by surprise, as most expected the big patch to arrive by the end of the week.

But a new message from the development team confirms that downloads of PUBG Mobile Update 1.8 are rolling out today, followed by new features going live on January 14.

The latest message from the Krafton team reveals that Spider-Man will play an active role in the coming months as part of the new update, with a new statement explaining:

“PUBG MOBILE will release updates from January 12, 11:00 (UTC +0). The server will not be taken offline for this update. Make sure you update the game in a suitable network environment and have enough space on your phone.

“See Spider-Man Swing Into The Zone In NYC On January 12th! Stay tuned for the big update on January 14.”

This means that PUBG fans will be able to see the new 1.8 update land on their devices as downloadable content starting today, but won’t be able to access everything it contains until the end of the week.

Krafton has confirmed that PUBG Mobile 1.8 will contain a lot of new content, including a new classic mode map called Aftermath.

This will be part of the new list of Unkaked modes you can play with the launch of Update 1.8, and will feature another version of Livik, transformed by bombs and volcanic eruptions.

“With the advancement of science and technology, all firearms have been modified to have an AC Core module, which makes them easier to aim and control. At the same time, the new scope makes it easier to aim with the reticle. We hope that these changes will always make shooting in the game fun.

“The size of the urban area and density of the play zone on the new map has been reduced to make it easier to spot enemies. Characters come standard with Tactical Glasses, which show players the damage inflicted by firearms.”

Other changes can be found below and include the following features, modes, and gameplay options:
