PUBG Desert Map Shown Off, 1.0 Release Date Announced

Tonight during The Game Awards 2017, Bluehole showed off the first gameplay trailer for PUBG‘s new desert map. You can check out the footage in the video embed above.

The new map, Miramar, will launch on PC through the game’s test servers at midnight Pacific tonight. It will be available on Xbox One in early 2018. Bluehole also confirmed today that the 1.0 version of PUBG will launch on December 20. The game comes to Xbox One through the Game Preview program on December 12.

Whereas the one existing map, Erangel, has lush forests and lots of green, Miramar is quite different in terms of layout and design. “We wanted to go the opposite direction of having lush fields and forests and arrived at the harsh and unforgiving desert of what we can now reveal is Miramar,” Bluehole said.

Finally, Bluehole provided a new sales update for PUBG tonight, confirming that it has sold 24 million copies since launch in March.
