PUBG Mobile Livik map detailed: 40 member match, volcanos, waterfalls and more
Interestingly, besides the size, what makes Livik different from others is that it is a 40 member map instead of 100.
PUBG Mobile has got a new map in beta called Livik. Like we have mentioned before, it is a smaller map as compared to Sanhok, Erangel and others. The developers say they have made this map for those who always wanted to play a quick game and not invest 30 minutes or more in a single match.
“We want more people to enjoy PUBG Mobile in a more flexible way,” producer Rick Li told The Verge. “The initiative for this map is bringing more flexibility to those players who have tighter schedules and circumstances to accommodate for.”
Interestingly, besides the size, what makes Livik different from others is that it is a 40 member map instead of 100. So, if you thought that you’ll go on a killing spree since there will be 100 members in a smaller map? It might not be the case.
Having less number of people on the map would also mean that each game’s time will be rather short. Developers add that games in Livik will last for around 15 minutes, which is almost half the time taken by a full-fledged 100 member match.
Talking more about the new map, developers add that although Livik is a small in size, it has several interest points like volcano, hot spring, waterfall, and others.
“The waterfalls around the map will provide unique interactions with the player not available on other maps,” Li adds. “The characteristic of the waterfall is the real physical impact of the water flow. Players might even get washed away by rapid water flow when standing on the top of the waterfall. You can also prep with new surprise tactics, such as launching a motorboat off the top of a waterfall to the water below on an unsuspecting team. That is something we’re really excited to see and we believe we can bring the most realistic battlefield experience to our players by constantly innovating while also keeping true to our core battle royale gameplay.”
The roll out date has not been revealed.
