December signals that it's time again for another monthly PUBG Mobile update. Now that the 0.16.0 patch for PUBG Mobile is here, you may be wondering exactly what this update brings. Well, first off, there is a new EvoGround mode called RageGear, and it brings with it a new EvoGround Loadout feature. Players can also expect to find some new Classic modes, such as Snow Paradise. Of course, there are many more additions that come with today's update, so if you'd like to view the full changelog, hit that read more button.

As expected, this month's patch for PUBG Mobile brings along a bunch of new features and changes, and luckily the patch notes are live on the official PUBG Mobile website, so we can pore through the essential bits. The most notable addition is the new EvoGround mode called RageGear, where players will be divided into two teams to be randomly assigned as a driver or shooter. The goal of this mode is to destroy your opponent's vehicle before they destroy yours. Besides the new EvoGround mode, there are also a few new Classic modes in the mix, such as Snow Paradise and two Healing modes. Firearms have also been rebalanced for Classic mode, and there's also a new backpack ornament, plus a new spectator tier and friendly fire restrictions. Of course, if you'd like to read the full Play Store changelog, I've pasted it below.

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.
