The article was posted very long back and was constantly updated. However, PUBG Mobile is up and running with the stable update of Season 8 and as already mentioned, packs a lot of new features and improvements. So, without any further ado, let us get straight into the article itself;

PUBG Mobile: Top New Features Added with Season 8

1. HDR Mode

While playing any multiplayer battleground game, graphics play huge importance not only in terms of winning or losing but, also great graphics gives the players an immersive environment and keeps them engaged. PUBG Mobile is also the same. Moreover, the game already offers great graphics and if you own a high-end device then, the gameplay is pretty intuitive and immersive with great graphics.

However, with the new update that has brought Season 8, comes with a new HDR Mode. This mode, as already mentioned was available in the PUBG Mobile game but, now with the new update 0.13.5, players can use the HDR Mode along with ultra-high graphics settings. Previously, it was not available to use with the Ultra Graphics settings. But keep in mind that, not every device will support this feature as Ultra High graphics settings will only be available to use on compatible high-end devices. The HDR Mode or High Dynamic Range helps in improving details like shadow and highlight areas, thereby bringing a brighter experience.

2. Rating Protection Card

One of the things that used to hurt the PUBG players was the loose of XP and dropping in rank if you are on the verge of losing the match or already lost. And if you are afraid of this, like me, then the new update has a fix for it. As the name suggests, the Rating Protection Card can help the players protect their ranks and avoid dropping of ranks.

Moreover, if you are on the verge of crossing another Rank, then this card can protect your Rank and now, you can maintain your ratings especially if you are in higher or tougher tiers. You need to have this card or purchase it, and this needs to be activated before every match to protect their ranks. However, there is a catch, which is that you can use the Rate Protection Card, till the Crown tier or below. So, what I would advise all the PUBG Gamers reading this post, is to first reach the Crown tier and afterward, activate this card.

3. Tier Transfer

If you are a noobie (gamers term for a new player) and have just started playing PUBG Mobile or just very recently got a hang of the game then, this feature is for you. The Tier transfer feature lets the players below Gold (Bronze or Silver) transfer to the next season without any changes to their tier. What this will allow the new players is that they can restart the new season without losing their reached tier and carry on from their onwards. A nice update for new players.

4. PP-19 Bizon

As a PUBG Mobile player since its inception, I always wanted the developers to add more weapons in the armory. However, we got new weapons pretty late but now, the developers are adding new weapons in the armory for the players very frequently. Moreover, with the 0.13.5 update, there is a new sub-machine gun added which is the PP-19 Bizon (you can check out the image of the weapon below).

The gun, however, does not support many attachments as shown in the image above. Moreover, the gun is stable and has very low recoil without any grip or attachments. You can use this weapon with 9mm ammo and is a pretty solid gun for close-range battle.

5. FPP in Team Deathmatch

We have already discussed this feature in our previous post regarding the beta update of the PUB Mobile 0.13.5. Moreover, with the stable update, now you can enjoy FPP (First Person Perspective) while playing Deathmatch mode. I personally do not like Deathmatch mode on PUBG Mobile because of its stability and other issues. However, the developers have added this new perspective in Deathmatch mode and we will have to play and then give our verdict whether this changes my opinion on Deathmatch Mode or not.
