PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds now has another new map available to players on PC version of the game called Vikendi. Xbox and PlayStation will see the new map in January 2019.
Vikendi is is smaller than both Erangel and Miramar, but its bigger than Sanhok.
You will find that the SCAR-L in Vikendi is replaced with the G36C assault rifle. The G36C assault rifle offers less recoil, but has lower fire rate.
- Chambered for 5.56mm ammo, it can load 30 bullets and 40 with an Extended Magazine
- G36C has a lower and upper rail for attachments, but cannot attach a stock
There is also a new hand-gun, the Skorpion. It will spawn on all maps.
Also new in Vikendi is two vehicles for getting around the map quicker. The snow mobile and snow bike can get you to much of the snow covered map. However, vehicles will have less traction on snow or icy areas. Acceleration on icy terrain is slow and you lose more general vehicle control as you speed up.
This new map is covered in snow, so just like in the real world you too will leave foot prints wherever you walk and drive. This new environment feature will change the game up a little bit when it comes to hunting down your opponents. Keep in mind that footprints and tracks in the snow don’t stay around forever!
The Vikendi: Survivor Pass is also available. Playing PUBG and completing certain milestones outlined in the pass will net you exclusive skins and rewards. The Survivor Pass is free, but you’ll need to pay $10 USD if you want the extra exclusive missions with faster leveling and additional rewards.
