PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds might still be a work in progress, but that didn’t stop PUBG Corporation’s massively popular game from picking up the “Best Multiplayer” trophy at last night’s Game Awards. The game also got a boost from the introduction of “Miramar,” a desert-based map, during the show.
You can get your first glimpse at “Miramar” in the trailer embedded above, and you can also catch up on some of the finer details of the play area in a brand new update on Steam:
We are excited beyond words that we can finally share the name of our new desert map and tell you a little bit about some of the places you can visit. When we decided to create a new map, we focused on creating an environment that is very different from Erangel. 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. The unique terrain and dense urban areas of Miramar will create a new Battle Royale experience where the old strategies may no longer work and new tactics are required. We don’t want to tell you too much as you will soon be able to experience it all yourself but we did write a few short descriptions of several of the key landmarks and towns. You can find them below, together with the new screenshots.
Finally, PUBG Corporation announced that “Version 1.0” of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will be available to download on December 20.
