The new Arctic Mode is added under the EvoGround Mode. In this mode, arctic storms appear periodically in Vikendi, and players will need to keep themselves warm to survive the night, using various methods like gathering branches for a fire, or hunt and cook chickens.
The update also comes with EvoGround gameplay adjustments and camera shaking and position improvements in Team Deathmatch FPP mode to increase realism.

Through the Brothers in Arms function, veteran players can guide and play together with rookies in the game – who can in turn learn from experience players and master the game quickly. Veteran players will be rewarded for teaching new players.
