After hitting PUBG Mobile and PUBG PC, the Vikendi snow map is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game soon. The PUBG Vikendi PS4 and Xbox One release date is January 22. In addition to this, a Survivor Pass for Vikendi with over 300 missions to complete would be accessible as well for around Rs. 650 ($10 in the US). Prior to this, the snow map was playable via the game's PTS (Public Test Server) and from January 22, it will be available for all. This makes the console versions of the battle royale title the final platforms to get this much awaited map.
According to Sony, the PUBG Corp-developed game stormed the digital download charts on the PS Store, making it to the top position on the North America PS4. In Europe, it was newest best-selling game too, coming in second to FIFA 19. The PS4 best-seller lists for Europe and North America also highlights differences in the popularity of some titles over others. Case in point: Mortal Kombat XL's presence on the North America chart while The Sims 4 remains popular in Europe.
Sony's European list also reveals Fortnite's DLC popularity with the Summit Striker, Frozen Legends, Deep Freeze Bundle, and Standard Founder's Pack taking the top four spots on the PS4 DLC chart for Europe. There's no such DLC list for North America though.
For what it's worth, we found PUBG PS4 to be an interesting beast. A year ago, it would have been revolutionary. At the moment, it's just about competent due to its middle of the road pricing and decent frame rate bogged down by poor presentation. If you own a PS4 and haven't played the superlative PUBG Mobile, play that first and if you prefer a bigger screen and the PS4 controller, give PUBG PS4 a go. It's not the best version of PUBG, but it'll do.
