What's the story?

The company behind PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds announced that 21 December 2018 PTS update will include the new PUBG Map Vikendi snow map along with a slew of bug fixes.

In case you didn't know...

The PTS (Public Test Server) is a dedicated free server for people who own a copy of PUBG and is the place where one could test the upcoming features in the game, which will ultimately, help the company fix any critical issues before the actual launch.

Additionally, all the statistics and player data from the Test Server will not carry over to the Live Server account.

The Vikendi snow map is a brand-new map in PUBG, which has already seen the light of the day in the mobile version of the game. The PC version of PUBG features the map on Test Servers, and now, the PlayStation 4 also features Vikendi on PTS.

The heart of the matter

The December 21 update introduced the highly-anticipated PUBG snow map to PlayStation 4's Test Servers. The new 6 km X 6 km map is smaller than Erangel and Miramar but is larger than Sanhok, offering players a completely different tactical experience. Furthermore, the map allows the players the movements if their opponents' movements via temporarily-visible footprints and vehicle tracks.
