When the latest update for PUBG: Battlegrounds releases on Dec. 1 for PC and Dec. 9 for consoles, players will be able to embrace the holiday spirit as key areas throughout the Vikendi map will be decorated in a winter wonderland theme.

But that’s not all – see below for a full rundown of Update 15.1:
