EMERGENCY LANDING-

SANHOK UPDATES- 

Sanhok was originally released in 2018 and remastered in 2020. We haven’t stopped there and continue to make additional changes and improvements across the map. Based on the feedback received after the remaster, we’re improving movement flow in specific areas and adding an additional coverage to encourage more diverse and reactive gameplay.

NORTHWEST ISLAND GEOGRAPHICAL IMPROVEMENTS

When moving to the northwest island, players often had no choice but to cross the water without going over the bridge and instead traverse the island’s outskirts, with no choice but to cross the water and engage enemies from a difficult position.

We have added cover to the previously open west to north coast areas near South Ruins and its connecting area.

  • Added small cliffs and rocks to be used as a cover on the south beach of the northwest island.

NORTHWEST ISLAND TEMPLE AT THE SUMMIT IMPROVEMENTS

Some buildings usable as cover did not spawn items, so we felt the need to improve those areas. Additionally, there wasn’t very much cover for those game enough to make the journey from Camp Alpha and climb towards the temple.

  • Relocated the Temple.
    • Removed the buildings which did not have item spawns and replaced them with new buildings containing item spawns.
  • Removed cliffs and added cover.
  • Adjusted the angles of the rocks.

MATCHMAKING – MAP ROTATION

  • Paramo has been removed and Karakin has been added to Normal Matches
  • Maps available in Normal Matches:
    • Erangel
    • Miramar
    • Sanhok
    • Vikendi
    • Karakin

RANKED SEASON 13: HONOR BASED REWARDS

Since Ranked Season 11, additional focus was placed on your most recent Ranked achievements, with honor-based rewards such as nameplates and emblems now only available to display for the duration of the new season.

Players who reach the highest ranks will receive additional rewards, such as animated nameplates and emblems to make the grind just a little sweeter.

  • At the beginning of Season 13, all eligible players will be granted their Season 12 rewards, including nameplates/emblems available for the duration of the season.
  • Honor-based rewards from Season 12 will be removed from the inventory with the start of next season.

SEASON 12 RANKED MODE REWARDS

Ranked rewards are granted based on your rank at season end. Players who reach at least Gold V will receive the Season 12 Ranked Parachute skin!  Those who fight their way to Platinum or higher will also be rewarded with a unique Animated Emblem. Master or higher players will also receive an Animated Nameplate.

The Top 500 players from each region will receive a unique Top 500 Animated Emblem and Animated Nameplate to show their status as world-beaters. Top 500 players will be displayed in-game on the LEADERBOARD.

Finally, view all your Season 12 Rankedstats by checking out the STATS screen under the CAREER tab in-game once the season wraps up.
