  • PlayerUnknown  Twitter'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds new desert map

During tonight's broadcast of The Game Awards, the first gameplay video of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' upcoming new desert map (called Miramar) was shown, giving viewers a much closer look at the game's second map. It will be officially released with the launch of the game's 1.0 release on December 20th.

If you wish to experience the new desert map at the highest levels of detail possible, at higher resolutions that make distant enemies easier to spot, GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics cards can exceed 60 FPS at Ultra settings, giving you high-fidelity visuals and fast response times, improving upon the performance of previous-generation GPUs by over 2X. Due to the lack of grassy cover, the new location will require players to switch up their play-styles if they want to earn their Chicken Dinners this time around. With the amount of rubberbanding going on in the test servers at its worst moments, hopefully, this third wave of testing will bring forth a ton of optimizations ready to get the game going smoothly at launch. Thankfully, the map will contain a new pickup truck vehicle in order to allow combatants to traverse the new terrain easily.

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.

Miramar is a new desert map, where we'll see denser urban areas and cities far larger than what we've seen in the current map Erangel. In line with this, they also revealed a short cinematic PUBG trailer for the Xbox One X version.
