PUBG Mobile servers go into maintenance mode as players prepare for a zombie onslaught

The streets of Erangel are crawling with zombies as players get ready for the much-awaited onslaught. A part of the collaboration between Tencent Games and Capcom’s Resident Evil 2, PUBG Mobile is under maintenance to introduce the zombies and bosses from the world of Resident Evil 2.
