PUBG Snow Map Vikendi Now Available for PS4 and Xbox One

Winter comes to consoles.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' new snow map Vikendi is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Vikendi Survivor Pass is also available, so players can complete map-specific challenges and earn rewards as they play.

The Vikendi map and Survivor Pass are available now as a free downloadable update in PUBG. For faster leveling, exclusive missions, and rewards there's a Premium Survivor Pass available for $9.99. Additional levels can be unlocked for a one-time purchase with a 50-level fast pass, retailing for $49.99.

Vikendi is the latest map in PUBG's rotation, joining the island map Sanhok, desert map Miramar, and default map Erangel. Vikendi is a 6x6 map set in an eastern European-themed winter wonderland. The map was announced at last year's Game Awards and was released into early-access that same night. Two new exclusive items are available on Vikendi, the G36C Assault Rifle and the Snowmobile vehicle.

We tested Vikendi on PC earlier this year and it's a reminder that multiple maps are PUBG's killer feature that no other battle royale game has yet to successfully replicate. The added environmental designs like leaving footprints in the snow also adds a welcome level of strategy.

You can read our Vikendi PUBG guide for a breakdown of the snow map including best landing spots, area guides, and more.
