In what could be good news for PUBG fans worldwide, PUBG will soon have a new map called Vikendi, according to reports. As we already know, a YouTube channel allthenewsisgoodnews uploaded a new video revealing a recreation of what it claims to be the upcoming PUBG map after Sanhok. If that’s true, PUBG fans and gamers can soon expect this fourth map to be available to download.

Developers often bring new updates to PUBG PC and console version of the game. Previously, it came up with Sanhok map update, which is smaller as compared to Erangel. The upcoming rumoured Vikendi map is expected to be bigger than Snahok but smaller than Erangel. Bigger the map, more time it requires to explore and finish.

What could be the reason behind introducing PUBG Vikendi map?

As any seasoned PUBG player would know, standard PUBG maps like Miramar and Erangel take you close to 30 minutes to finish, assuming that you are the last man standing. Maybe time constraint was perhaps why PUBG decided to introduce Sanhok. But again, when the map is smaller, it will be full of action! Well, that’s also one of the standout features of PUBG.

It may not apply to PUBG maps, but overall updates to PUBG are often based on a certain theme. Previously, we saw it adopt some visual and audio changes to align with Mission: Impossible – Fallout. We have also seen a PUBG Halloween theme in the past.

Now, if we take a closer look, we can observe that Vikdendi is a snowy map. This leads to a widespread speculation that it will release sometime in late December. Because that’s when Winter starts. This map could probably be set to release during Winter. Again, there are certain other elements such as rocket and its launch site. We think there would be only random design elements simply not to make things too obvious to figure out.

When can we download PUBG Vikendi map?

Rumour has it that PUBG Vikendi map is likely to release for Sony PS4 in December coinciding with the release of PUBG console version. We are expecting more clarity on this update. Meanwhile, a new PUBG update is available to download for mobile users. The update brings new Roayle Pass, M762 Automatic rifle, enhanced in-game chat interface and more, you can check it out and let us know what you think about the latest update.
