Popular battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, from PUBG Corp, is competing hard with Fortnite in terms of adding new content to the game so as to keep it relevant and popular. The company 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.
There have been quite a few leaks that have started trickling in, and we previously reported that the name and the first look of this snow based map has been revealed according to a Reddit post by user u/allthenewsisgoodnews’. The post, said that the new map in all probability will be called Dihor Otok. The user had 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.
Now there is new buzz on Reddit around a post by u/jham1213 which says that the new snow map may be called Vikendi, and will probably be released along with the PS4 version of the game on December 7. The post shows a screenshot from the list of bundles, and price of the PS4 release of the game. In the list is a mention of Vikendi Event Pass. Considering Bluehole released the Sanhok Event Pass along with the release of the Sanhok map on PC, the Vikendi Event Pass would have to something similar.
According to previous 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.
