PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds unveils new map

Although PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has become something of a worldwide phenomenon, gamers everywhere are undoubtedly exhausted of experiencing the same Russian landscape time and time again.

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds developer PUBG Corp, the new spinoff company in charge of the battle royale-style PC hit, this week revealed the name of its much anticipated new desert map, Miramar. In addition to the new vehicle, also comes a new gun that will be replacing the Erangel's R1895. Thankfully, the game's development team over at PUBG Corporation have acknowledged the need for variety and today's Game Awards event was the flawless time to display what new map Miramar has to offer. It will be officially released with the launch of the game's 1.0 release on December 20th. The map is available today on the test servers.

Miramar is a larger desert area that's been teased for some time. When we made a decision to create a new map, we focused on creating an environment that is very different from Erangel. Do note, that this map will be free to all players.




PLAYERUNKNOWN's Battlegrounds (PUBG) continues to be the world's most popular PC game, with record-breaking player counts on Steam, and over 24 million sales.

With a December 20 release date, it will certainly complicate Game of the Year discussions if it has a smooth launch.
