PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, popularly known PUBG was down for some time on Tuesday on its mobile version due to maintenance of its game servers. Tencent Games, the makers of PUBG uploaded a new update which features much-awaited Vikendi snow map. It also features new style main menu, cross-server matchmaking and winter fashion wear. The size of new update is approximately 1.6 GB and is available for update on both Android and iOS.
The new Vikendi map is a snow-covered map with a 6 km x 6km size land and is larger than Sanhok map and comparatively smaller than Erangel and Miramar maps. However, this map will be available for playing from December 20 for the mobile users.
Meanwhile, the PS4 and Xbox users will have to wait for the new Vikendi map a little longer, till January 2019.
In the new Vikendi map, gamers can enjoy the new snowmobile vehicle. The gamers can also have a snowball fight on the spawn island. Also, they can exchange exclusive gifts and rewards from the Classic mode matches.
The new update has also come up with Arabic language support and strict rule for those who regularly exit from matches. This new feature will be called ‘cooldown period’ and those who quit the match mid-game will now face a little problem in finding matches and will have to wait longer for their match-making. The players can also report suspicious behaviour in the game while spectating after dying.
In a tweet by PUBG Mobile, the gaming company said, ‘’#Vikendi, a 6km x 6km snow map, is coming! It will be available for download at 0:00 UTC on 20th of December 2018, and available for matchmaking 24 hours later. We recommend downloading the map first once available! #winterwinterchickendinner.
