The Livik map on PUBG Mobile is aimed to bring more flexibility for players who have “tighter schedules,” revealed producer Rick Li in an interview.
PUBG Mobile is getting Livik as a brand new map to let gamers play quick matches while on-the-go. The map was announced by the official PUBG Mobile account on Twitter on Thursday, without revealing any specifics. However, a PUBG Mobile producer has revealed key details about the new development during a media interview. The team has built the Livik map exclusively for mobile gamers, who do not have hours to play matches on their smartphones. Thus, the concept is to supply an area where matches might be played as quickly as possible.
The Livik map on PUBG Mobile is aimed to bring more flexibility for players who have “tighter schedules” and are looking to squeeze during a quick match whenever they need some free time, producer Rick Li told The Verge. The map is 2 kilometers by two kilometers in size and features a room for supporting matches with up to 40 players directly. Further, each game on Livik will last around quarter-hour.
PUBG Mobile has used Nordic terrain because of the theme for the Livik map. Despite being a little map, it does include a spring, volcano, and waterfall, among other points of interest.
“The waterfalls around the map will provide unique interactions with the player not available on other maps,” Li said. The producer also highlighted that there would even be surprise tactics, including “launching a motorboat off the highest of a waterfall to the water below on an unsuspecting team.” the thought of creating such changes is to supply a sensible battlefield experience through the new map.
Details about the provision of the Livik map aren’t yet revealed. However, it’s clear that it won’t be something the same as earlier maps available on PUBG Mobile that were all aimed to deliver an experience in line with what’s there for PC and console gamers.
PUBG Mobile’s approach of providing some exclusivity to mobile gamers, alongside a definite feel and a unique experience, is probably going to assist in its growing success. this can be also unlike its arch-rival Fortnite that also offers chiefly the gameplay that’s available on PC and consoles.
Li in his interview did suggest that quick matches wouldn’t remain exclusive to mobile devices and eventually debut on PC and consoles. Having said that, the Livik map will initially bring fresh experience only to mobile gamers.
The beta version of PUBG Mobile includes the Livik map as a “secret map”. However, the new experience is yet to be available for the masses.
