As winter approaches, it gets colder, not only in the real world but also in PUBG Mobile during the Frost Festival. Tencent is bringing winter to the game with lots of exciting new features. The highlight, however, is that it will snow on the game’s iconic Erangel map.
PUBG Mobile gets covered in snow for the Frost Festival
Tencent first announced the upcoming Frost Festival with an announcement on Twitter last week. In it, a radio broadcast warns the residents of Erangel of an impending snowstorm in certain areas of the map. This includes Stalber, south of the firing range, northeast of Pochinki and northwest of Quarry.
The Frost Festival is scheduled to begin on November 9th. Then this blizzard will probably hit Erangel. Certain areas of the map will be covered in snow. It will also bring new features to the game which are as follows:
- Snowboard: To help you move around the snowy map faster, Tencent is adding snowboards to the snowy Erangel map. These are single-seater vehicles that enable rapid rotation. Be careful, however, as snowboards offer no protection whatsoever and expose you to enemy fire.
- Cable Cars: Getting around in the snow can be challenging, especially when you’re so exposed to the white canopy. For this purpose, cable cars are also added to the game.
- Frozen Egg: These are new items in the game that players can throw to create an ice shield that lasts for 180 seconds.
The Frostfest in PUBG Mobile doesn’t end here. Another highlight is the new Gilt Glacial Bride Set with the Forsaken Glace – AUG. These are legendary skins and feature a new hit effect, elimination transfer, and more.
In addition, Tencent is giving away the Fleet Commander Set for free on the occasion of the Frost Festival. The reward is the Frosty Gifts event, which requires players to complete daily login missions for seven days to receive the set. In addition, you can also earn other items.
