PUBG Mobile will receive its fourth map, the Vikendi snow map, within this week. The latest map will not be exclusive to smartphones, as gamers will also be able to access it on PC, as well as PlayStation 4 as well as XBox One. This means that the Battle Royale game now has four maps: Miramar, Erangel, Sanhok, and Vivendi.
With the new map, PUBG regulars can expect new challenges, improved character skins, different gameplay modes and weapons. Here are some differences of PUBG’s ‘Vikendi’ map from other maps.
PUBG Vikendi Map: Expected release date, map layout and features
The latest map of PUBG, short for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, will be the lone icy terrain that gamers will experience. With the new map, one change from the other maps is the presence of dynamic clouds, that has been hinted at through the map’s official teaser video.
With the snowy Vikendi map, gamers can expect to find their own footprints, and that of others, on the land, besides the marks left by tire tracks. Naturally, this will also mean that movement on the map will be slower going in comparison to Sanhok and the others.
Beta testers have also said that in the Vikendi map, users will be able to throw snowballs at one another while waiting to board the plane.
PUBG Vikendi Map: Snowmobile, Night mode feature
As driving regular automobiles would be difficult under the terrain, PUBG will introduce the snowmobile under the Vikendi map. A glimpse of the same will be provided by the official teaser video, and the two-seater automobile is expected to be available in different battle modes.
Also, this map will also feature Night mode, that has already been seen on other PUBG Mobile maps. Over the course of missions, one can expect the Vikendi map to turn from daytime to night, or some missions can be exclusively played out in the dark.
PUBG Vikendi Map: G36C assault rifle, Survivor Pass details
With the upcoming Vikendi map, PUBG gamers will also receive a new weapon. While beta testers have spotted the SCAR rifle, PUBG has confirmed the inclusion of the G36C Assault Rifles for gameplay. This, of course, will be added as exclusive gear, besides the Snowmobile. Of course, the PUBG Mobile Vikendi map is partnered with its Survivor Pass, that are expected to load onto servers on December 19.

Besides these changes, gamers will also notice a unique experience with red zone and blue zone. While the blue zone in the Vikendi map will be slower than that of other maps, PUBG gamers will find more zone variety and unique experiences during increased navigation. Also, the red zone size varies with the play zone, while the centre of the red zone located outside the gameplay region.
