Wang didn’t reveal any more details about the new zombie mode apart from the announcement. A short video clip was also shown where a zombie is approaching a level 3 helmet abandoned on a beach.

PUBG Mobile already has two zombie modes called 'Darkest Night' and 'Survive Till Dawn 2'. It had earlier collaborated with Resident Evil 2 for a crossover event that brought some peculiar zombies from the Resident Evil franchise to the mobile game. We aren’t sure how the collaboration between the game and The Walking Dead is going to work out. Will we be able to play as some of the iconic characters from the movie? We’ll know for sure when more details are revealed.

Apart from the new zombie mode, Wang also announced that the Erangel map is going to receive visual upgrades. A short video was shown where many areas including Mylta Power, Prison, Yasnaya, etc., were compared to the upcoming graphics update. Recently, the PC version of PUBG also received a visual upgrade to many areas in Erangel and it was natural for the mobile game to receive the same update. No further details were announced about the map update nor do we know when the update is going to be rolled out.
