Big changes are coming to the PUBG map, with natural forces being a new contender that players will have to face. Additionally, other new implementations are being introduced across the map, along with further changes being added following player feedback.

Players on PC can expect to jump into the new content on January 18th, whilst console players will have to wait just a little bit longer for January 26th.

Here’s everything coming to the 21.2 update in PUBG:

Vikendi World Updates

  • Blizzard Zones: These unique areas will have players battling devastating blizzards, as well as one another. Player movement will be slowed, alongside causing constant damage. As expected, it will be hard to navigate due to poor sight and sound.
  • Secret Rooms: New Secret Rooms have been added across the map, and with the help of a Security Key that players can find, can lead to a wealth of high-tier items.
  • Repair Kits: These will be scattered across the map, allowing players to repair their armour, helmet, or even vehicle if needed. A Mechanic’s Toolbox can also be used to repair vehicles you are inside.
  • Care Packages: Players can also expect to run into Multidrop Care Packages. These will contain high-tier weapons, armour, consumables, and more.

Sanhok World Updates

  • Ascenders: Players will be able to use Ascenders in cave and rock mountains. These will be provided as starting items for players, allowing for more methods of traversal.
  • Bridges: More bridges have been added to make traversal even easier.
  • Deeper Water: The water area around the Ruins has been made deeper for players to traverse over.
  • Sand Terrain: Players can expect new sand terrain in new areas for easier travel.

The Arena

  • Winning Streaks: Winning Streaks have been added, which will record your achievements to show off to your friends.

Many more updates have been introduced and players can see everything coming to the 21.2 update in PUBG here. It sounds like 2023 could be a very big year for the popular battle royale.
