Vikendi is 6x6km map. The gameplay of Vikendi is quicker than Erangel and Miramar, but offers an arguably more tactical experience than Sanhok.
Players can throw snowballs 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 lose more general vehicle control as you speed up
Footprints and vehicle tracks will appear as players travel in snow-covered areas. Keep an eye out! These are great to help identify if enemies have passed by recently
Keep in mind that footprints and tracks in the snow don’t stay around forever!
Temporarily removed the feature that allows you to inspect your weapon by pressing the ‘J’ key.
Added the Vikendi trailer to the game launch intro.
The center of the red zone spawns outside of the play zone
The smaller the play zone, the smaller the red zone
The first circle of every game is much smaller than other maps, but subsequent circle sizes change less drastically.
This facilitates more blue zone variety and unique experiences.
Similar strategies work on Vikendi to Erangel and Miramar for the first three phases, but the zones will close slower starting from phase 4, similar to Sahnok. We feel this leads to a good balance between strategy and gunplay throughout the duration of each match
Item Spawn Balance
The overall item spawn rate is at a midpoint between our maps – offering a unique place between the spawn rates of Erangel and Sahnok.
Level 3 helmets spawn in the world
Level 3 vests spawn more often than other maps
Smoke Grenades are spawned at a higher rate compared to other throwables
