The live servers of Update 24.1 are turned on for PC, bringing some odd exciting features into the gameplay. A few days before, the official blog from PUBG jotted down all the features you would see in the particular track. Howbeit, still the server is yet to go live on the console, which has been scheduled to turn itself on from 21 June.

It goes till 22 June to attain all the time zones. Two significant changes were on the way until it hit the island today for PC users. They are bringing tactical gear in a spruced-up deck. At the same time, the Vikendi map is updated with some spectacular confect.

Even some more delicious food is yet to be served. PUBG Battlegrounds PC gamers are already acting as a drawing card to be on the ground and coax the foe from the draft. Tactical gear is one of the necessary tools that turns into a new purpose.

The new update can be only applied to the following modes:

  • Normal Matches
  • Intense Battle Royale mode
  • Custom Matches

Vikendi Map

We could see that Terrain has been upgraded for some significant areas while leaving a few regions abandoned. Maybe, this could be one reason for inadequate commitments or where players couldn’t find a place to hide.
