During the Thursday night Game Awards event, Tencent Games launched a trailer for its very exciting, snowed-in new map of PUBG. This new 6×6 map has been named Vikendi and has been revealed to be deeply wreathed in the snow. The PUBG trailer shows the glimpses of the new map and hints towards some serious snow hurdles. The tweet by official PUBG account reads, “Winter has Come to #PUBG”. Although there are no additional details entailed along with the trailer, we get to see a dead soldier, a grenade and a bird venturing in the snowy territory. Now, Tencent Games announced that PUBG Mobile would also get the new map with 0.10 update and the servers will go live on December 19. Read ahead to know more about the new PUBG 0.10.0 update which brings the Vikendi map on-board.


0.10.0 Update for PUBG Mobile With Snowy Map

We have managed to get our hands on the changelog for the latest PUBG Mobile update, and like it is the case with every other PUBG rollout, this one also comes with new additions. As per the information, the update will be available for download at 0:00 UTC on December 20, 2018, and players will be able to do matchmaking 24 hours later. There is also the new snow weather mode. A new Vikendi exclusive vehicle is going to be the newly added Snowmobile. Vikendi’s Spawn Island will also come with a snowball fight. There is also an added layout for players with large hands

Additionally, the new update of PUBG Mobile brings a display for Crew Challenge winners on Erangel’s Spawn Island. On the Spawn Island, the season one’s winning team will appear with their respective server and modes. Tencent has also informed that season 2 registrations will start at 0:00 UTC on December 18, 2018. Also, now the best results of crew challenges will now be displayed on the respective crew pages, which will also be shareable with other users.

Speaking of theme specific changes in the gameplay, the game now comes with a snow theme on the main menu. Players can collect bells from all classic mode matches and exchange them for rewards in the event centre. Now the themes of each significant update will be emphasised in the shop front.

Matchmaking, Reward and Other New Changes

There are also some matchmaking changes by Tencent as part of this new PUBG update. The first of the many is cross-server matchmaking, after enabling which, players will have a chance to be matched with players on other servers, but belonging to the same tier. Players who repeatedly exit matches right after starting will now be banned from entering again for some time. Also, players will now be able to report suspicious behaviour while spectating after dying.

Some new additions and changes as part of rewards include the ability to collect all daily mission awards at once. There is also a newly added firearms Finish Upgrade System, where players will be able to use materials available at the Lab to upgrade specific weapon finishes. These upgrades would get them additional kill effects, unique kill broadcasts, and appearances of death crate. A newly added lucky treasure will give players a chance to get an upgradable weapon finish, the Glacier – M416 while they go on finishing daily missions. There are also more season spending awards this time, which the players can spend to get excellent rewards and some attractive discounts on firearm finishes

Additional improvements as part of this new PUBG Mobile 0.10.0 update include added Arabic support, eliminated the need to select a second language for matchmaking and chat, less memory storage for chat system and storing messages and new commands for the quick chat function.
