This new patch update brought a night mode for the latest map. Apart from this, the new map also brought along a new weapon, three new vehicles, and some bug fixes.
However, the weapon, which PUBG Lite is going to get now, is already available on the other platforms. Further, players can now get the latest update via PUBG Lite Launcher.
The complete patch notes of the new update include:
It is a 6×6 Kms map. The gameplay is much quicker than that of Miramar and Erangel, but the new map is going to offer a much tactical experience than that of Sanhok.
Coming to the gameplay, the vehicles in this map are much slippery on the icy and snowy terrains. The acceleration is slower, and if you speed up your vehicle, you may lose control.
Vehicle tracks and footprints are visible on this map when they travel across the snow-covered areas. It will help you in finding your enemies who have passed by recently. You can find two kinds of weather in the Vikendi Map, firstly clear and the other one is moonlight, which also a night mode.
Then comes the Red Zone that is similar to Sanhok, made outside of the safe zone. As the safe area decreases, the red zone will also become smaller.
The Blue zone is resized to match the size of the map, in order to provide a new experience of battle royale. As the item spawn rate increased, it will be easier to loot the items.
The new gun AR: G36C is available only on Vikendi in PUBG Lite. This new weapon is 5.56mm ammo AR. It can load 30 bullets and can load 40 on attaching an Extended Magazine. G36C equipped with most of the attachable parts except the tactical stock.
Three new vehicles are available to run on this snow map. The snowmobile is available only on Vikendi, and it will have the capacity to carry a total of two players. It can perform better than any other vehicle on ice and snow. But it isn’t very easy to drive this vehicle on different terrains.
The Snowbike is also exclusively available for Vikendi. It is much faster and has better mobility than that of the snowmobile. However, the durability of this bike is less and can be destroyed easily.
The Zima does not have perfect control over the snowy planes. It is relatively slow but has high durability. On Vikendi, Zima replaces the UAZs.
The store added a New Year Crate that would expire after February 6th. And also added a Winter Guardian Crate, available between January 16th and February 13th.
The update fixed the issue where characters get stuck in Miramar in the empty spaces in between specific objects. Further, fixed kill feed abnormal display when in the blue zone, a knocked out user dies. In some instances, the kill count gets abnormal updates after teammate revival.
