GET SNOWED IN! “SLEIGH” ENEMIES FOR HOLIDAY DINNERS IN NEW BONE-CHILLING PUBG MOBILE SNOW MAP VIKENDI
Overhaul of new in-game features arrives in hit mobile battle royale’s latest update
LOS ANGELES – Dec. 21, 2018 – PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile (PUBG MOBILE) now offers fans the highly-anticipated Vikendi map and other major features in the newest 0.10.0 update, available for free on the App Store and Google Play. Set in a rugged tundra terrain riddled with deserted villages and other massive landmarks, the Vikendi map measures six by six kilometers in size, making it a perfect balance between the high intensity of Sanhok and the slow burn of the Erangel and Miramar maps.
Vikendi also delivers several new gameplay features, including the exclusive snowmobile vehicle to traverse the map, snowball fights on the spawn island and a fresh winter theme in the main menu. Several other all-new features arrive in PUBG MOBILE’s latest update, including:
- Cross-server Matchmaking – Players now can match with other players of the same rank across other servers for balanced gameplay
- Anti-Cheating Measures – Improved recognition for cheating with new report options for spectating players and additional penalties for quitting matches
- Firearm Upgrade System – New materials at the Lab are available for players to upgrade certain weapon finishes to unlock exclusive kill effects, broadcasts and death crate appearances
- Layout Improvements – Players’ best results in the Crew Challenge will now be displayed and players can now collect all daily mission awards all at once
This latest content update arrives just after Tencent Games and PUBG Corporation announced that PUBG MOBILE has surpassed 30 million concurrent users and 200 million downloads worldwide, excluding China. This momentous milestone was achieved just eight months after the game’s release.
PUBG MOBILE is based on PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG), the original battle royale phenomenon that took the world of interactive entertainment by storm in 2017. Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to do battle in a winner-takes-all showdown. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone.
