PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Xbox One Vikendi Map Now Available

January 21, 2019 at 11:52pm

The latest Xbox One specific patch will bring players a brand new level to fight it out on. That's right, the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Vikendo map is now available for Xbox One players starting from a maintenance period of January 21st at 11:00pm to January 22nd at 3:00am PST. For quick time zone reference that would be 2-6am EST or 12-4am MST.

The core focus of this update is the new map, but other features are present which will be highlighted below. Vikendi is 6x6km map. Players can throw snowballs at each other while waiting to board the plane in the starting area. Vehicles will be more slippery in snow or icy areas. Acceleration on icy terrain is slow and you'll lose more general vehicle control as you speed up. Footprints and vehicle tracks will appear as players travel in snow covered areas. These tracks don't last forever, they're limited. Full details on what's been added and tweaked to follow.
