PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds looks set for another boom in popularity after revealing a brand new ‘Kakarin’ map for Season 6. Here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming update.
The game’s developers has previously teased a fresh map on social media and have finally put out a reveal trailer to show players what to expect from their next battlefield, which is set for a January 25 release.
PUBG’s new map will join a list of those already added to the game, including Erangel, Miramar, Vikendi and Sanhok – all of which are based on different biomes. Now, we have a much clearer idea of how the upcoming map will shape up in-game.
The official PUBG YouTube account fired off the first look trailer for Kakarin on January 15 and it is fair to say that the community, who were already pining for the arrival of the announcement, greeted it with open arms.
While many viewers will have been interested in the map itself initially, it didn’t take long for players to notice that a few new weapons were also going to be included in the Season 6 update – which is always interesting.
We don’t have enough information about them just now, but there’s bound to be new weapon skins and a new themed battle pass to come with this bumper update. Without further ado, let’s check out the trailer.
One thing that is particularly noticeable right off the bat is the size of the map. It looks significantly smaller than others added to PUBG in the past, which should make things interesting. It is reportedly 2 x 2 Km in size.
With PUBG in competition with other battle royale giants like Fortnite and Apex Legends, the community seemed delighted about the imminent arrival of new content to rival those successful titles. The last major patch, Season 5, launched back in October of last year.
This exciting news follows on from the announcement that a flying Motor Glider was added to PUBG’s Erangel and Miramar maps. Though, it might not be long before you’re gliding around Kakarin in the same way.
