Vikendi, PUBG's new snow map, is finally making its way to PUBG Mobile, along with other winter themed additions in the 0.10.0 update.
Available for download on December 20 at 00:00 UTC, with matchmaking coming online 24 hours later, Vikendi has been a celebrated addition to regular PUBG, so it's definitely something for mobile players to look forward too.
Along with the map itself, Vikendi also brings with it a new vehicle, specifically tailored for the snowy conditions, the snowmobile, which is exclusive to the new map.
Another interesting change in the update is the measure implemented to stop players entering and leaving games right after they start, which will now result in a temporary suspension from matchmaking.
The Firearms Finish Upgrade system is also added, which allows players to weapon finishes for unique kill effects, kill broadcasts and death crate appearances.
