The update also adds cross-server matchmaking, a firearms finish upgrade system, and season spending rewards.

The map is said to be small enough for players to memorize their preferred drop zones or quickly adapt, but large enough to take each match at its own pace and explore a range of diverse and unique environments. Users now get an option to report suspicious behaviour in spectator mode. You'll find the new snow mobile and snow bike on Vikendi as well.

A short list of official patch notes have been shared by Tencent and confirm that the biggest update will be the release of the new Vkendi map. The addition of the snow should make the gameplay more exciting. Also, footprints will show up when a vehicle or a player goes through snow.

Finally, the update now gets a settings that allows the game to work with phones with a notched display.

The snow will also make it hard to drive vehicles as the surface will be slippery.
