As mentioned, the new Livik map is an exciting addition to the game and players can get a refreshing change from the regular gameplay. Here's all you need to know about the Livik map.
Livik map: It's a small map, measuring just two-by-two kilometers and allows 52 players in fast-paced action-packed gameplay. Each match lasts around 15 minutes.
