PUBG Mobile updates play the most important role in keeping millions of players hooked to the game. The last update to the game (v0.11.0) introduced the most exciting crossover event, "Zombie: Survive Till Dawn," and the latest one makes the zombie mode a lot more exciting. PUBG Mobile 0.12.0 update patch notes have already been revealed, but there's an important bit of information every player must be aware of before the update arrives.

PUBG Mobile servers traditionally go offline before a new major update arrives. In order to make necessary changes and optimisations to the game before publicly rolling out PUBG Mobile 0.12.0 update, the popular battle royale game wasn't available for several hours on April 16.

As per the notice, PUBG Mobile servers briefly went offline. The scheduled time for maintenance was from 00:00:00 to 08:00:00 (UTC), which is from 5:30 am to 1:30 pm IST on Tuesday. But the PUBG Mobile servers returned online at least four hours before the scheduled time, the company confirmed. Now, players will receive PUBG Mobile 0.12.0 update on Wednesday.
