Can PUBG Make Comeback With The New Snow Map

PUBG's New Map Vikendi Can Be A Big Hit

Some time ago PUBG delighted in massive domination. The early-access battle royale game was a gigantic breakout hit, with a record 3.2 million concurrent players on Steam very nearly one year back. Be that as it may, its numbers have dropped off, and keeping in mind that it's as yet one of Steam's most well-known game, it's not even close to its pinnacle.


In the interim, Fortnite is undeniably the greatest game on Earth, and Call of Duty's Blackout mode conveys another huge name to the battle royale. Against these overwhelming hitters, and with even CS: GO including a battle royale and going free-to-play, PUBG wouldn't gain new players except if it accomplishes something radically extraordinary.

The new Vikendi snow map for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was announced amid the 2018 Game Awards, conveying the aggregate number of maps to four (five if you count training). The timing was intriguing, as PUBG's greatest battle royale rival Fortnite's season 7 had dropped, and with it, a host of changes to the map, new incorporations, and a totally new creative mode.

Vikendi was accessible instantly following the announced, for PC players, and just on the PUBG Test Servers. New maps are continually energizing increments to the game, however stalking foe squads in the snow does little to switch up the game.

Try not to misunderstand me: the new Vikendi map is incredible. I've totally made the most of my time playing the new map, and PUBG Corporation has worked superbly with Vikendi. It has an eminent blend of structures, open fields, clearing slopes, and different landmarks. The new snowmobile is a fun option in contrast to the little vehicles found in different maps, and playing a PUBG map as the snow crunches underneath your boots shakes up the sound pleasantly.

However, it's more of the same. There is no enormous jump in gameplay from the old maps to Vikendi. Nothing in the Vikendi map has that "gracious, amazing" feeling that could arouse the enthusiasm of a non-player or make for crazy viral recordings.

Compare that to Fortnite season 7, which utilizes its sole map to weave a meta-account, including a creative mode, and acquainted biplanes with the game. Those are colossal, game-changing augmentations in a game where each season is an immense occasion. Individuals woke up early that day to make sure they could perceive what was new. Contrast that with Vikendi: I haven't possessed the capacity to gather my customary companions for a full squad match yet.

For me, PUBG has dependably been a game of finding the stowaway first, and a shooter second. Vikendi has the correct blend of structures and characteristic structures like rocks and trees for me to play precisely the kind of game I generally appreciate. Running the way with the best cover while the circle closes in resembles a chess game, where you have to think two advances. Each map requires an alternate style of play, and figuring out how to adapt and adjust to a radical new map is a piece of the good times... be that as it may, just on the off chance that you as of now have significant recognition with the past maps.

Since I began playing in early access, each new map has been a delight to play, however in the event that this is your first time jumping in, it would feel disconnected changing starting with one map then onto the next. What works in Sanhok totally won't work in Miramar.

I adore the moderate pace of PUBG. It's my battle royale of the decision, and attempt as I may, I haven't discovered anything to supplant it. Fortnite is excessively crazy, and its building mechanics turns me off. Blackout is fun, however, it senses that it has excessively of Call of Duty's splash and implores multiplayer mechanics.

In any case, as much as I adore it, it's difficult for it to pull in new players, harder still for it to recover its place in the general gaming discussion the way Fortnite has. In the event that PUBG needs to keep on flourishing despite the rivalry, it needs to accomplish more than make augmentations to satisfy long-lasting fans. A snow map is extraordinary for those of us who began playing version 0.6, yet it won't resist getting new individuals.
