PUBG Mobile – When will Sanhok launch on iOS and Android?

Any true fan of PUBG has been wondering when Sanhok will make an appearance on our mobile devices. For those of you in China, that time has already come. For the rest of the world, that time is coming soon.

Soon? How soon!

Good question, well truth be told no exact date has been revealed. However, our sources seem to indicate that it will be released on the 0.8 update. It was confirmed a while back that Sanhok will be released in Season 3, which started yesterday. Therefore, it’s safe to assume this update is expected to take place sometime in September.

For those of you who don’t know what Sanhok has to offer, allow me to explain.


Fans of the PUBG series will know all about the fast-paced action that Sanhok has to offer. For starters, the size of the map is considerably smaller, meaning that the spaces between looting and bumping into people are reduced. This allows game times to be much shorter, as well as encouraging you to spend more time shooting, and less time looting.

Just to give you a sense of scale, the other maps in PUBG Mobile are eight kilometres by eight kilometres. Sanhok is four by four kilometres, so its half the size of the other maps available, Erangel and Miramar.


Sanhok is based on the Southeast Asia region. A region famous for its rapidly changing weather and tropical islands, and this is no different in PUBG. Sanhok features dynamic weather and a daylight cycle, allowing for an even more immersive feeling as you stakeout buildings in the cover of night.

If a compact action-packed map isn’t enough for you, there are plenty of exclusive items to get your hands on. One exclusive is a new weapon called the QBU. The QBU is a DMR with a bipod that is perfect for medium range sniping while on prone.

So if Sanhok is coming soon, what else is yet to make an appearance in PUBG Mobile?


One of the most entertaining aspects of PUBG on PC or XBOX was re-watching the game from the victim’s point of view. Replays not only offered an entertaining experience but also an educational one too. There were many times when I would watch a replay and saw an enemy in a certain spot I never thought of or a certain style of play I hadn’t seen before. For example, leaving some med-kits or other tantalising loot out in the open as a trap.


The replay system for PUBG is arguably one of the best out there. There are special features that include a player list and X-ray mode which makes viewing replays simple and quick. It’s easy to jump to the POV of another player as well as position the camera freely for some dramatic camerawork.

Overall the replay system is just one feature that mobile is missing out on, but it is an impressive feature to have. It seems like a replay system is a standard requirement for most modern shooters, so hopefully we will see it added onto mobile soon.
