Los Angeles – July 7, 2020 – For the first time ever PUBG MOBILE is presenting an all-new battle royale map that is exclusive to the mobile version. The Livik new map boasts stunning never-before-seen battlegrounds set to the theme of the gorgeous Nordic scenery, and is just one part of today’s huge 0.19.0 content update, which is available to download for free on iOS and Android.

At the size of merely two-by-two kilometers, Livik is primed for epic 52-player showdowns, providing a fast-paced action-packed gameplay with around 15 minutes per match. Livik introduces map-exclusive gear and vehicles, such as the P90 sub-machinegun, Mk12 marksman rifle and Monster Truck vehicle. The map is still in its Beta stage, and will continually be updated to improve the gaming experience.

Bonfire Mode Gameplay

Players who queue for Erangel and Miramar have the chance to experience this new game type, where three unique items can be found around the maps. Small Statues can be burned to earn supplies and special event items. Secondly, Giant Statues has multiple construction stages, which changes as the event progresses. It burns in the final stage. Finally, Statue Camps will be set up around Statues, and supplies can be found inside the tents.

 

Livik Firearm Special Training Event

During the event period, players can discover Experimental Trial Weapon Crates around Livik, which contain special weapons.

ABOUT PUBG MOBILE

Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to battle in a winner-takes-all showdown. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone.
