The long-awaited snow map for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been revealed and it’s called Vikendi. The map was first shown with a trailer during The Game Awards on Thursday night.

The trailer shows off a bird inadvertently causing an explosion, but it does give us a few details about the map. Vikendi looks to feature massive amounts of snow along with frozen rivers and lots of trees. Dave Curd from developer PUBG Corp. was in attendance to provide a few more details, including the fact that players would leave tracks in the snow and that the map would include at least one new weapon and the new snowmobile vehicle. Curd also mentions that the map is the first in PUBG to be six by six making it right in the middle between the sizes of Sanhok and Erangel.

Vikendi releases on PUBG’s test server tonight and will go live on Dec. 19, and it will be headed to consoles in January.
