If you are a diehard PUBG fan, then you would know that the PC version of the game has three maps including Erangel, Miramar and Sanhok. However same is not true for other editions of PUBG as on Xbox, iOS and Android users have access to two maps only while Sanhok a.k.a Savage is still coming soon.
While the normal English version of PUBG Mobile does not have Sanhok yet, the Chinese edition was recently updated to add this third map option. This means now you can enjoy the brand new PUBG map on your iPhone or iPad even before your friends can, by downloading the Chinese version of PUBG on your device.
Sanhok is an action packed rainforest map that is much smaller in size than other two maps. The smaller size of the map results in more action and prevents the game from becoming too long and boring.
In order to be able to play the Sanhok map (named Sano in Chinese version of the game) on mobile you have to follow the steps below. During this tutorial you will be downloading the free PUBG Mobile game from the Chinese App Store. Do note that the game is based in Chinese language, so you will have a tougher time browsing its menu. Once you are past the menu, the game will seem familiar to those who have played the English edition.
