PUBG Mobile just rolled out a new update with new game modes, weapons, content and features.

PUBG Mobile 0.16.0 is now available to download for Android and iOS users. The latest update can be downloaded from Google Play Store and the App Store. Unlike previous updates, PUBG Mobile will not take its servers offline for this one. The latest update requires an additional 0.6GB of storage space on smartphones.

Possibly the biggest feature arriving with PUBG Mobile 0.16.0 is the new RageGear mode in EvoGround. This essentially allows players to compete in two teams in a death race like situation with weapon mounted vehicles. Special weapons like the Gatling, RPG, grenade launcher and M249 will be available in RageGear.

Snow comes to Erangel through "Snow Paradise". Players queuing for Erangel have a chance to enter Snow Paradise where they can ride cable car lifts and snowboards. PUBG Mobile 0.16.0 update also adds a new loadout screen to Team Death Match mode. This update also brings a TPP to FPP switch in Classic, Arcade and Training Grounds modes.

PUBG Mobile has collaborated with Angry Birds in this update which brings crossover items that players can unlock. There's also a mini game in Spawn Island where players can throw Angry Birds bombs. Here's a look at what else is new on PUBG Mobile with the latest update.

New Sliding Mechanic - Players can now choose to enable or disable character sliding in Team Death Match mode
