(Pocket-lint) - The latest PUBG Mobile v10 update is here and the big addition is Vikendi, the snow map. The app updated recently and the new map is available to download and start playing now.

Wiping out the (now slightly boring) Halloween theme, the update moves everything over to snowy action. The Vikendi Map is 6 x 6km. For reference, Erangel is 8 x 8km and Sanhok is 4 x 4km, so Vikendi is pretty big and gives plenty of variety for longer matches.

It's based around a sort of northern Russian setting, pine trees, rolling hills, the odd cosmodrome, frozen lakes and of course, snow mobiles. The staging area gives you snowballs to throw at people. There's plenty to explore and keep you entertained over the holiday period. Remember to check out our PUBG Mobile tips and tricks to help you win.

Since the introduction of season 4, there have been a range of snow outfits available and now it looks like you'll actually be able to put them to some use. It's also a region that lends itself to lighter clothing rather than dark when it comes to camouflage. 

That's not all that's incoming. There's also Arabic language support and cross-server matchmaking.

Tencent has also detailed that there's going to be a mechanism to report "suspicious behaviour" while spectating after dying. That means that if your teammates slaughter you, it should be easier to then report that.

Fratricide isn't uncommon in the game, but the reporting system does have the provision to report that specifically - and that will mark down the offender, so it's worth doing if you're subject to unfair play.
