Vikendi is set to return to PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS once the new patch goes live on the 6th of December on PC. If you’re a console player, then you will have to wait another 9 days as the patch will go live on the 15th respectively. However, if you’re on PC and want to experience Vikendi Reborn early you can via a test server.
The snow filled map will be returning soon, but it is not the same as it was before, with the popular map being “Reborn” whilst it has been away. One of the biggest changes coming to Vikendi is its size, it is now a 8x8km map, whereas it used to be 6x6km. The expanded map also features a new Blizzard Zone, highlighting the harsh colds and terrains of Vikendi.
We will also be getting a new mode of transport on Vikendi: Cable Cars. This is sure to help getting around the larger sized map. Each station will have two routes, with one car per route. Cable Cars are set to be exclusive to Vikendi. Snowmobiles are also set to return to Vikendi, so you can shred around the map’s snow with ease.
Alongside the Cable Cars, Lab Camps are also being introduced to the map. These are going to be spread around the northwest of the map, near the frozen lake. Lab Camps will house a new type of spawn with differing kinds of items and drops.
One of the biggest changes coming to Vikendi Reborn is the adjustments made to Comeback BR. Going forward, there will now be three chances to come back into the game, as opposed to the one there used to be.
The eliminated player will spectate their team until they go into the Comeback BR, then they have to survive to earn their way back into the game. There are a total of three of these in a match, but if your squad dies while you’re waiting then you’re eliminated.
