Officially launching on April 21 on PC and April 28 on consoles, the PUBG 7.1 update refreshes the game’s Vikendi map.
A good portion of snow on the island has been removed to improve visibility issues, while snowbikes and snowmobiles have been replaced with motorcycles including ones with sidecars.
Weather patterns have been updated to offer Clear or Snow options, while moonlight has been removed but will return later with visual improvements.
The Dino Park theme park has been replaced by the larger Dinoland, including an updated commercial area and gift shop, while there’s a fresh look for the Cosmodrome areas and a new Cargo Depot too.
Players can visit Dinoland and other attractions using the map’s new railway system, which features a line running around the edges of the map and six connected tracks which take players inland. It has various trains with unique engine/car configurations and there are 12 stations dotted across the map.
The Mosin-Nagant sniper rifle is a new weapon which shares the same stats as a Kar98k but has it’s own look and feel.
The latest premium Survivor Pass, titled Cold Front, offers players limited edition weapon skins and costumes, while some free cosmetic items can be unlocked by completing community missions.
Former Sledgehammer and Visceral general manager Glen Schofield recently said he wants to deliver a “quad-A” PUBG product with the debut game from his new studio Striking Distance, which will expand the series beyond battle royale with “an original narrative experience”.
