Bluehole offers a look at PUBG's new desert map: Miramar

PlayerUnknown's Battle Grounds Teases New Truck for Desert Map

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Xbox One Getting a Trio of Limited Edition Cosmetic Packs Starting Tomorrow

The map is named Miramar, and unlike Erangel's very green and woodland environment, the new one is situated in a desert.

The map features a number of landmarks including a motorcycle death bowl, a colorful coastal town, and plenty of the shipping containers that players will know and love from the existing map. This, alongside the aforementioned pickup-up truck, and a sawn-off shotgun.

"When we chose to create a new map, we focused on creating an environment that is very different from Erangel", said Bluehole. As the developers put it, "Miramar will create a new Battle Royale experience where the old strategies may no longer work, and new tactics are required".

The largest city in the region, Los Leones features ample shopping, a skyline filled with new construction, and a glorious, golden-hued City Center. Numerous construction sites can also provide players with high vantage points.

El Pozo is a city known for its large industrial and entertainment districts.

In addition to The PUBG Warrior Pack being available, don't forget to tune into The Game Awards, where the PUBG team will reveal the first-ever gameplay footage of PUBG's new desert map live onstage and is also nominated for Game of the Year, Best Ongoing Game and Best Multiplayer Game.

Monte Nuevo is the picture of a town besieged.

"Valle del Mar", for instance, borders the ocean, and a controllable bridge is the only thing connecting it to the rest of the map. The key to holding this town is bridge control, as it's the only direct route between mainland and the island.

As we collectively gird our loins for the launch of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Xbox One, Microsoft has confirmed the release timings for the game's arrival in Game Preview on the Xbox Store, while one of the game's cosmetic item packs is already available for purchase.
