Because of PUBG Mobile, PUBG now has as many players as Fortnite

The first time you start the game, you'll see a controls panel to the right of the emulator which will list down all the keyboard and mouse controls to play the game.

The move was confirmed by the game developer Tencent when it recently sent a "Maintenance Notice" alert stating that PUBG Mobile servers will be down for some time because of some updates, which also includes the new Vikendi map. Till now, three maps - Erangel, Miramar and Sanhok - were available in PUBG Mobile.

Vikendi, a 6km x 6km snow map, is coming!

The addition of the Vikendi map is a snow map that often referred to as an arctic map.


But you may also know that PUBG is not available for the users in China, which clearly indicates that PUBG has got ahead of Fortnite in popularity if everything is summed up.

The most interesting part about this game is you will never get bored with its gameplay. During the update, the PUBG servers will be taken offline to fine tune the latest update with the game. However, the Vikendi's game play hasn't been enabled yet, despite it being built into the update. Players will be able to use the pass itself for free, though missions, selected rewards, and faster-leveling are only available with the Premium Pass that you'll have to pay for. Console players will, unfortunately, have to wait until January before they have access to the map. The update will also bring two brand new items exclusive to the map; the G36C Assault Rifle (which replaces the SCAR on Vikendi) and the Snowmobile to navigate its icy terrain. Unfortunately, what the exact rewards that can be acquired through the collection of the PUBG Mobile Jingle Bells are now unknown.

The Vikendi Survivor Pass lasts 10 weeks total, giving PUBG players the ability to complete special missions to unlock extra rewards.

The new Vikendi map, which went live on test servers earlier this month, is a 6x6km map with a snowy environment.
