Goin’ out to the desert.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is getting a new desert-themed map, and we’ve got a new look at it thanks to a new livestream by Brendan Greene, PlayerUnknown himself. It’s yet to be named unfortunately, but the new look gives us an idea of what to expect from it and how it might play when it does drop.
There appear to be multiple stories in each building, which should provide lots of different areas to hide out in or set up camp in so you can take out your enemies with little effort. Of course, we don’t know right now if you’ll be able to head into each and every building, but it would be an interesting twist if so. As far as the desert setting, according to Greene, it’s located in the deserts of Peru — not that you could really discern that from this new screenshot.
We’re still going to be waiting quite a bit to see the map rolling out, but hopefully there’s a new name for it coming soon so at the very least we can do a little more than refer to it as the “desert map,” but luckily everyone pretty much knows what we’re talking about with it anyway for now. Like with all things PUBG, we’ll be waiting with baited breath for the new map to drop when it finally does descend upon us.
