The devs of PlayerUnknown’s BattlegroundsPUBG Corp, are hot on the tail of Fortnite in terms of adding new content to the game so as to keep it relevant and popular. In line with that, it had promised a snow-based map in the form of a teaser at the end of its trailer for Xbox at E3 2018. The teaser though didn’t reveal anything at all except the character looking down at its feet while walking on snow. This snow map was promised to gamers by the end of this year.

As if on cue, the leaks have started trickling in and we may have the name and the first look of this snow based map. As per Reddit user u/allthenewsisgoodnews’ post, the new map in all probability will be called Dihor Otok. The user has also teased the map, which shows a snowy northern region that is full of mountains and has a lake. The landmass is divided into two by a river that is frozen on the northern side.

From reports, the map will be based on European regions and the Reddit post mentions that the new map will have points of interest that are called Cosmodrome, DinoPark, Villa, Town, Cement Factory and Castle.

Besides the new map, there is also a new mode in the works which is called ‘Conquest’. It is likely to play like the Domination modes we have seen on Unreal Tournament and Call of Duty games. Players will probably be divided into two teams, and would have to control several points on the map to win. There might also be a new weapon which might be a C4. If these details are true and we go by the Roadmap PUBG promised us, then the snow map could be hitting the experimental servers soon.
