Game developer Tencent Games is now rolling out the latest update for the game, which brings a variety of changes. The biggest change is the introduction of the new snow map, Vikendi. This is the fourth map available for Classic Mode game play, after Erangel, Miramar and Sanhok. The map is 6km by 6km in size, which makes it smaller than Erangel and Miramar but larger than Sanhok. The map features a new Arctic landscape covered in snow.

With the update now rolling out, users will be encouraged to update to the latest version. The developer is, on its end, encouraging the update by offering an Outfit Box (7d) and in-game credits of 1,888 BP to users that update to the latest version before December 25.
