New features coming to PUBG Mobile 0.9.0 include night mode in Erangel map. Night mode will be turned on randomly in-game. In celebration of Halloween, PUBG Mobile will get a new Halloween theme on Spawn island. The island will be filled with candies and pumpkins. There’s a new ‘Candy’ event and a Halloween theme for the main menu.

Sanhok map gets the QBU DMR and the Rony pickup truck. PUBG Mobile has also added a new “Share for Deals” feature where your friends can help you bargain for items. With this update ‘Crew Challenge’ is now open, and crews are limited to six players.

PUBG Mobile hasn’t released the full patch notes for 0.9.0 as yet, but they were leaked online prior to the update. Here’s what else is coming to PUBG Mobile.

The Halloween theme will also bring changes like people becoming scarecrows when killed by the Hellfire AKM rifle, and a spooky face appearing whenever a grenade explodes. The new update is also expected to improve driver and passenger views along with better recoil recovery and stability in guns. In terms of performance, PUBG Mobile 0.9.0 will also reduce lagging issues in the game.
