PUBG won’t command the limelight like Fortnite, however PUBG Company continues to be out right here delivering a stable battle royale expertise and making an attempt to innovate a bit. The developer has revealed Season 6, which begins with sport replace 6.1. Before everything is the addition of a brand-new island, Karakin, which is changing Vikendi within the regular server rotation. Vikendi will nonetheless be out there in PUBG, however just for customized matches.
Karakin is a 2×2 km island designed for 64 gamers, making it one of many smallest maps in PUBG so far. Based on the developer, it is meant to be quick paced with quite a lot of rigidity.
“It’s small, quick, and harmful: Count on the strain of Miramar mixed with the tempo of Sanhok. Karakin is a 64 gamers map. Gamers ought to count on lengthy distance rifle engagements within the mountains, tactical city battle, and claustrophobic underground fight,” defined the developer in the Patch Notes.
Karakin incorporates a brand-new hazard mechanic for PUBG known as the Black Zone. The Black Zone is much like the Purple Zone, in that will probably be a random a part of the map that can fall underneath assault. Denoted by a purple circle on the map, the Black Zone will stage buildings inside its affect, with the potential to destroy them fully. Buildings can come out of a Black Zone hazard unhurt, partially destroyed, or completely flattened, that means gamers must be versatile. And for the reason that zone is random, it’s going to really change the general composition of Karakin matches.
Destruction is not solely restricted to the Black Zone although. There’s additionally the brand new Sticky Bomb weapon, which can be utilized to open breach factors on constructions. Buildings may have breach factors on sure partitions or flooring, permitting attackers to succeed in campers or snipers to create new sight traces. PUBG has even hidden some secret areas behind breach factors, so get to exploring. Lastly, Karakin additionally has bullet penetration on weak partitions, that means you will not even have to breach to assault gamers tenting inside sure buildings.
Season 6 additionally kicks off a brand new Survivor Cross and provides a brand new automobile, the flying Motor Glider, to Erangel and Miramar. Whereas flying is fairly helpful, it additionally makes you a goal and also you want a little bit of runway to take off. Personally, I would say it is higher to keep away from flying, however that is simply the man deathly afraid of pinpoint snipers speaking.
PUBG Season 6 is presently on the take a look at server, and it will be coming to PC on January 22 and consoles January 30. PUBG Company continues to be increasing the model with an upcoming narrative experience, and an entirely new game from creator Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene.
