Tencent hasn’t given any hint on what players should expect from the new map. It’s possible that the company could introduce Karakin to PUBG Mobile.
Karakin is a two-by-two kilometer map in PUBG PC and is half the size of Sanhok. Unlike the usual 100 players, the map only has 64 players competing for the chicken dinner. It was released in the PC version of PUBG in February 2020.
Right now, PUBG Mobile has five battle royale maps: Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok, Vikendi, and Livik. Livik, just like Karakin, is a two-by-two kilometer map. It’s exclusive to PUBG Mobile and is restricted to 50 players. Tencent brought the map to the game in July.
