Krafton announced that the PUBG Battlegrounds update to version 22.1 on Windows has included bears to Vikendi’s map in order for loot drops to be protected), and Deston is back.

Here are the main updates for Season of Vikendi. Yes, even the bears. The full patch video has been also posted.

  • Bears – Bears are now on Vikendi’s frozen battlegrounds, but they’re hibernating from the winter blizzards and sheltering from the cold. While players can enter their caves to steal valuable loot they all know what happens to a sleeping bear when you poke it.
  • Moonlight – Vikendi has created a winter wonderland with moonlight mode. This transforms the map into an atmospheric snowscape, with aurora borealis overhead. It also emits calming vibes. Enjoy the sights, but be aware that there are still enemies.
  • The Thermal Scope is a great tool for finding targets in Vikendi’s darkened nightscape or whiteout blizzards. This magnifying scope with 4x magnification helps to highlight enemies and make them more easily identifiable.

This update will see Deston return to Random Map regions! We try to base every rotation on map popularity rates, dodge rate, surveys, and so forth. However, we have been hearing feedback that some players were upset by the removal of maps from the random pool. We have taken Taego out and placed Deston back in the random map pool as a result of your feedback.

We can’t speak for everyone at the moment, but we plan to make changes to the map rotation system in response to your feedback. This will be happening sometime this year. Every player in every region will now be able meet different maps at a quicker pace with this update. Enjoy the return of Deston & Karakin with this update!

Bears can be killed but they will attack you if your reach a certain distance. The VIkendi map is bear-based and there are warning signs. Your profile overview will not include any stats about bears. Vikendi will have bears in both custom and normal matches.

Maintenance will also be performed at the following times.
