INFECTION MODE RETURNS WITH HALLOWEEN ZOMBIES IN PUBG MOBILE

Beloved PVP playmode for Halloween is resurrected in latest content update for world’s most popular mobile game ​​​​​​​

LOS ANGELES – Oct. 16, 2020 – Chilling undead creep back into PUBG MOBILE today as the Infection Mode returns to the blockbuster mobile game just in time for Halloween. Infection Mode was first launched in the 0.14.0 content update of PUBG MOBILE in August 2019. From now through Monday, Nov. 9, players can get into this favorite mode again in the action-packed gameplay through a free content update. New in-game themes and costumes are also added as part of PUBG MOBILE’s Halloweeks celebration, coming soon.

In PUBG MOBILE’s Infection Mode, players are split into two teams at the beginning of the match, including Zombies and Defenders. Zombies must defeat all Defenders before the time limit ends the match for victory, but if even one Defender survives, the Defender team earns the Chicken Dinner. While Defenders boast firearms of M416 and AK47 with super Extended Mags, Zombies can only use melee attacks and abilities, which have cooldown times. Once defeated, Defenders will become infected and respawn as Zombies, who can even transform into Fast Zombie, Stealth Zombie, and the Zombie King with huge defense and attack boost. Defenders will also transform into powerful combatants called the Vanquisher when there are only three of them left. Infected killed by Vanquishers cannot be resurrected. These make the gameplay even more interesting and encourage strategy from different side.
 
In addition to the return of Infection Mode, today’s content update delivers a new wave of specially-themed in-game décor for PUBG MOBILE’s Halloweeks. Zombies wear Halloween masks, with new atmospheric decorations, including jack-o'-lanterns, gravestones and candles. More Halloweeks themed outfits, items and festive content will be revealed soon.
 
PUBG MOBILE is available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play
 
ABOUT PUBG MOBILE
PUBG MOBILE is based on PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, the phenomenon that took the world of interactive entertainment by storm in 2017. Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to battle in a winner-takes-all showdown. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone.
