PUBG Mobile update 1.2: Everything you need to know about the upcoming Runic Power Gameplay

Here's a look at what's going on in PUBG Mobile around the world.

PUBG Corporation's popular battle royale title PUBG Mobile is getting update 1.2 tomorrow. The PUBG Mobile 1.2 Runic Power update will go live tomorrow with a new mode of gameplay and several new rewards for the players. This update will require 615 MB of storage space on Android devices and the iOS version will require 1.5 GB storage space.

The previous update (update 1.1) was launched in November with a Metro theme that featured a crossover between PUBG Mobile and Metro: Exodus. While update 1.1 introduced features like black market, loadout feature, and inventory, let's take a look what update 1.2 brings to the table.

Runic Power Gameplay

In the newly introduced Runic Power gameplay mode which will run from January 12 - March 7, players will get a chance to choose from three different Rune energy types on Spawn Island. Each of these Runes will grant the player 2 unique skills- A summon skill and a boost skill.

Flame Rune

  • Summon skill - Summons a wheel of flame that rolls forward slowly, dealing burn damage to enemy players it touches.

  • Boost skill - Adds a burning effect to your Ammo for a short time.

Arctic Rune
