Today, PUBG Corporation officially released their fourth map, Vikendi, a breathtaking frozen landscape with mountains, snowfields, and frozen lakes. In addition, a new weapon and a new vehicle will appear exclusively in Vikendi.
Squad up and beat the cold in this tension-filled 6×6 frozen environment. The map is small enough for players to memorize their preferred drop zones or quickly adapt, but large enough to take each match at its own pace and explore a range of diverse and unique environments. Some of these locations include European-style cities, the Cosmodrome, snowy forests and the Dino Park with a central maze, among others.
The terrain allows for exciting ways for players to interact with their environment and survive. For instance, players and vehicles will leave tracks in the snow, allowing clever enemies to hunt down those that aren’t careful. Additionally, a variety of weather forecasts will have players dropping into light to heavy snow or clear skies with a chance of strong winds.
Unique to Vikendi is the G36C rifle, a new 5.56mm assault rifle. It’s easier to handle than its 7.62mm counterparts in exchange for a lower rate of fire. To match the snowy landscape, the Snowmobile has been added, allowing players to dash through the snow in a no-horse open motorized sleigh.
The Survivor Pass is available and will reward players with exclusive skins and rewards with 300+ missions. The pass is free for all players, but paying $9.99 will give access to exclusive missions, faster leveling, and additional rewards.
Vikendi is now live for all PC players of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. It will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in January 2019. For more information, visit the official website.
