Patch Notes - January 16th 2020

Winter has arrived! The snow-themed map is finally available to play for PUBG LITE. 

New Map: Vikendi

 

Vikendi is a 6x6km map. The gameplay is much quicker than Erangel and Miramar but it offers more tactical experience from Sanhok.


o Gameplay

    • Vehicles will be more slippery on the snowy and icy terrains. Acceleration is slower and you may lose more control of the vehicles as you speed up.
    • Footprints and vehicle tracks will appear as players travel across the snow-covered paths. These marks can help identify enemies that have passed by recently!
    • There are two weathers in Vikendi: Clear and Moonlight (night mode). 

o Redzone

    • Same as Sanhok, the red zone will be made outside of the safe zone (white circle). 
    • As the safe zone (white circle) grows smaller, the red zone size also decreases in size.

o Bluezone 

    • In order to provide a new battle royale experience, the Blue Zone has been resized to match the map size for each phase.

 

o Item Spawn Balance 

    • It will be easier to loot items as we have increased the item spawn rate. 

 

 

Weapon

  • Added a new AR: G36C. 
    • Available only in Vikendi.
    • This 5.56mm ammo AR can load 30 bullets and 40 with the attachment of an Extended Magazine.  
    • G36C can be equipped with most attachable parts except the tactical stock. 

 

 

Vehicles

  • Snowmobile
    • Available only in Vikendi.
    • Total of 2 players can be seated. It performs better than other vehicles on snow and ice however is more difficult to drive on other terrain.

 

  • Snowbike
    • Available only in Vikendi.
    • Snowbike is quicker and has better mobility than the Snowmobile, however, it is much less durable and can be easily destroyed.

  • Zima
    • Available only in Vikendi.
    • It won’t have perfect control on Vikendi’s snowy plains, however the 4×4 Zima is much easier to maneuver compared to other vehicles.
    • While the Zima is relatively slow, it has high durability making it ideal for combat situations.
    • Zima replaces the UAZs on Vikendi. 

 

 

Store

  • New Year Crate
    • Sold until February 6th

 

  • Winter Guardian Crate
    • Sold from January 16th to February 13th

 

ETC

※ Bug Fix ※  

  • Fixed the issue where characters got stuck in empty spaces in between specific objects in Miramar. 
  • Fixed the issue where the kill feed was abnormally displayed when a knocked out user died in the bluezone. 
  • Fixed the issue where the kill counts were abnormally updated after teammate revival in certain cases.
