Latest PUBG MOBILE update will annoy PUBG Emulator players: All you need to know

PUBG MOBILE has dropped the latest 0.12.0 update. While the new version brings in some exciting new additions, it does put emulator players at a slight disadvantage.

The latest update to PUBG MOBILE is finally out for both Android and iOS platforms. The new update brings a host of new features and enhancements to make the gameplay experience even better than before. The update is available as an OTA update and should be preferably downloaded via Wi-Fi network. The major additions to the game in this update are the new Darkest Night mode under the Survive the Dawn "zombie-mode" and dynamic weather to two maps.

While the dynamic weather and Darkest Night are two notable additions with the new update, it also brings one feature that may annoy the group of players who use PC emulators to play PUBG MOBILE. While PUBG MOBILE was originally designed to be played on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, the modding community managed to bring the PUBG MOBILE experience to PCs with the help of emulators.

The emulator allowed players to play against players on mobile and tablets. With the emulator, players got the benefit of a huge display and better performance with PC chipsets. With the addition of a mouse and keyboard, PUBG MOBILE is easier to play. However, the emulator put the other players on mobiles and tablets at a disadvantage. The PUBG MOBILE team tried to solve the issue with a dedicated emulator that only allowed players to match with other emulator players.

With the latest update, the emulator detection has been enhanced, thereby ensuring complete fairness for players on mobile devices. "Emulator detection enhanced to stop emulator players from being matched with players on mobile devices," stated the changelog of the game. Prior to this update, the emulator players were occasionally matched with players from mobiles, which led to a disadvantage for the players with smaller screens.

The PUBG MOBILE Team has been trying to make the game a level playing field for all players. Last year, the team came out with a tool to ban millions of players who used cheats to gain an unfair advantage over other players in the game.

For those want to get the PC gaming experience in PUBG, the official game is available on Steam at a price of Rs 999. However, the game is only supported on computers with high-end specifications. To bridge the gap between mobile and PC players, PUBG Corporation came up with PUBG LITE - a free-to-play version of the PC game with watered down graphics and reduced system requirements. PUBG LITE is currently available in Beta and can be played with the help of a VPN in India.
