PUBG Mobile to get a New Small Map Called Livik for Quick Matches
PUBG Mobile is one of the most popular Battle Royale games on iOS and Android. Now, the platform is getting a new update as it introduces an all-new map for quick matches. That's right, the new map in PUBG Mobile is called Livik and it will only be available for quick matches. While we are hoping for a new main map, Livik sounds like a good start.
PUBG Mobile to Add New Livik Map Designed For Quick Matches
As mentioned earlier, the new Livik map is designed for quick matches and it is only exclusive to the mobile platform. This means that the PC version of the game will be left out. The map only supports 40 players and measures 2 by 2 kilometers. Since the area is small along with the number of players, the entire game finishes early in contrast to Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok, and Vikendi.
As per developers, each game in Livik will last for about 15 minutes. Longer matches are fun and all but there are always times when players want to play quick matches. This is a good option for players who are unable of sparing a huge chunk of time to play PUBG Mobile.
