PUBG Reveals Vikendi Map Release Date
We have been keeping a close eye on all the happenings of PUBG and now, the news is out for the highly expected Vikendi map. Tencent’s servers are down and it seems like the company is getting ready to roll out the Vikendi map in it’s new update. The notice states that the servers will be taken offline for maintenance from 00:00 to 9:00 UTC on December 17th. The service will renew sooner or later depending on the progress. The new version will be pushed to Google Play and App Store on December 18th.
What To Expect From The Update
The new update will push out the Vikendi map. The map is a 6×6 km snow themed map. PUBG will add a Snow theme to the main menu and add Arabic language support. There will also be cross- server matchmaking and players will be able to report suspicious behaviour while spectating after dying. If a player updates before 25th they will receive an Outfit Box III (7d) and 1888 Battle points. The new update will also bring new season spending rewards. Other games such as Fortnite and Call of Duty also have their own winter theme before Christmas and PUBG’s map will be fitting as well as challenging for players.
The company had teased the map during the Microsoft Press conference at E3 without having revealed much. There has been dummy maps and reddit threads about the same but it is yet to be seen how the map plays out. From what we know so far, the play-time for the map will be shorter than Erangel but longer than Sanhok. The map is said to consist of a wide variety of attractions. It will have businesses areas and villages with a dense and thick forest. There will also be a warm Mediterranean coastline and snowy mountains in the central area of the map.
