As per a previous report, the upcoming map is small and will support a maximum of 40 players at a time. It measures two kilometers by two kilometers. The idea behind introducing the Livik map was to create a space where matches could be played quickly.
“We want more people to enjoy PUBG Mobile in a more flexible way,” said producer Rick Li. He added that the map had been created keeping in mind players who wanted to enjoy a quick match whenever they had the time.
Based on Nordic terrain, Livik will offer lots of points of interest, including a volcano, hot spring, and waterfall, among others.
The waterfall will provide unique interactions with the player not available on other maps. Players will be able to launch a motorboat off the top of a waterfall to the water below on an unsuspecting team. They might even get carried away by rapid water flow when standing on the top of the waterfall.
According to Gamereactor, the new update will bring five-vs-five Armory Arena mode, in which players will rotate between 18 different weapons each time they obtain a kill. The update will also let users toggle on and off the camera rotation while focusing on their target.
