Last week, PUBG Mobile received an update with tons of new features and events, such as a snowy menu theme, collectible Jingle Bells, and of course, the highly-anticipated Vikendi map.

Of course, PUBG Mobile is not the only game with Christmas-themed events. Many other titles such as Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, Bricky Farm, or World of Tanks Blitz have added new stuff for the holidays, sometimes as little as just some snow dropping over the environment, and they are all welcomed. However, the battle royale clearly shows that it has put a lot of effort into this occasion. Not only is there an entirely new map, but that map also comes with an exciting vehicle to explore it in: the snowmobile.

Another thing to appreciate is the pre-match snowball fight, which really brings forth the kid inside each of us. After all, that is what holidays are for: They are an opportunity for us to forget out responsibilities for a while and just be children again.

And then there are the Jingle Bells, which you can collect during your games for some rewards. Sure, it is hardly anything out of the ordinary, but the developers have done a good job of tying all the events together by providing players with numerous challenges to do.

What’s more, all these things are just the icing on the cake that is the success that PUBG Mobile has garnered just nine months after its release. Not often do we see a mobile adaptation gain recognition comparable to that of its PC/Console counterpart, yet this game most definitely managed to achieve just that, and arguably more. It undoubtedly set a new standard on how to make a good mobile port, and how to hold a memorable Christmas event.

With all the spotlights that PUBG Mobile has gained this year, it is exciting to see what it has in store for us in 2019.
