LOS ANGELES, – March 5, 2019 – In an ongoing partnership, Tencent Games, PUBG Corporation and Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) have brought the world of Resident Evil 2 into PUBG MOBILE with a special mode, Survive till Dawn, which drops hordes of the undead shambling onto the game’s Erangel battleground.

 

Today, new content focusing on classic characters from Resident Evil 2 can be unlocked in PUBG MOBILE. Players can customize their avatar with the Ada Wong and Marvin costumes or change their appearances with the Leon and Claire Skin Sets. An official promotional video that highlights the latest content from the PUBG MOBILE X RESIDENT EVIL 2 crossover can be seen here.

 

Additionally, PUBG MOBILE has earned a global feature on the App Store since Survive till Dawn gameplay mode launched. Players in different regions can win two exclusive items: A Resident Evil themed frying pan and an Elite Operatives suit to turn their avatar into a zombie-fighting hero.

PUBG MOBILE is available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play. 

 

PUBG MOBILE has surpassed 30 million concurrent users and 200 million downloads worldwide since launch. In 2018, PUBG MOBILE took home multiple awards and nominations, just eight months after the game’s release. The game earned three awards at the Google Play Awards last month, including “Best Game.” It also won the “Mobile Game of the Year” award at the 2018 Golden Joysticks and received nominations from The Game Awards and the App Store. 

 

PUBG MOBILE is based on PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG), the original battle royale phenomenon that took the world of interactive entertainment by storm in 2017. Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to do 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.
