The DynaHex stamp of approval

In PUBG MOBILE’s latest patch, not only has classic Erangel undergone a complete evolution, but it also provides a seamless, high-tech experience for both old and new players alike. Diving into the survival shooter now feels like stepping into a whole new world, as technology and energy giant DynaHex conducts its scientific research on Erangel for further long-term technological advancement.

With this overarching goal, DynaHex has set its sights on Erangel as an experimental base, completely revamping six major areas around the map based on transportation, military defense, logistics, and energy utilization. Players can access the Mission Ignition mode through EvoGround where Rating Points can be earned.

Transportation ports of the future

Previously Pochinki, the Transit Center functions as the beating heart of Erangel's transport network. This transportation core has been reimagined as a new station where particularly wily players can use the city bus as a form of mobile cover.

Speaking of being in transit, the Port of Georgopol has transformed the old Georgopol into a logistics port that houses a brand-new central command center. This area also features a fully automated warehouse that boosts the efficiency of the advanced logistics port for Erangel.

Knowledge is power at the Tech Center

What was previously the School is now updated as the Tech Center, and it serves as the pioneer of cutting-edge exploration. Being at the forefront of academic research, the Tech Center showcases research technologies for players while providing plenty of paths and structures to confront unwitting foes.

Meanwhile, the Security Center (which was previously the Military Base) serves as the backbone of security monitoring in the whole island. It provides armed support as well as deploys rapid-response facilities for Erangel.

High-speed transport

As for supplies distribution, the Logistics Agency (which has replaced the Yasnaya Polyana) manages the various supplies that arrive at Erangel. Classification of supplies, as well as checking and distribution, will all be handled here, while for the players themselves, the Logistics Agency has also set up HyperLines to facilitate travel throughout Erangel.

As the Hyperlines connect the cities of the island, players can expect to discover more tactics for moving between fixed locations at specified times. Similarly, the Command Center’s Air Conveyor outside urban areas and bases can allow security personnel to patrol the skies.

There are tons of other stuff to discover in PUBG MOBILE’s Mission Ignition update, including a a new Anti-gravity Motorcycle and new gear to use in battle such as the Riot Shield and ASM Abakan assault rifle. You can immerse yourself in this futuristic feel by downloading the game on the App Store and on Google Play.
