PUBG’s New Sanhok Map Will Go Live Later this Week

After some very intense beta testing, PUBG players will be pleased to know that the brand new Sanhok map will be going live on regular servers this Friday, on June 22. Over on the game’s Steam community page, an update has been posted, detailing all of the changes coming with the upcoming patch, as well as some extra facts about the map itself.

  • Sanhok is 4km x 4km map (one fourth the size of Erangel or Miramar). Although games tend to end a little more quickly on this tiny island, battles are still massive. Every game still features 100 players.
  • Certain settings have been customized specifically for Sanhok to better fit its unique design. Details are below.
  • Performance
    • Faraway players and vehicles aren’t rendered the same way on Sanhok, resulting in some server performance improvements.
  • Gameplay
    • Weather in Sanhok changes dynamically.
    • Players can throw apples while waiting to board the plane in the in-game lobby.
  • Redzone
    • The redzone is smaller and shorter-lasting on Sanhok.
    • The center of the redzone appears outside of the playzone (the white circle). This means players are more at risk when outside of the playzone.
  • Bluezone
    • Bluezone on Sanhok has shorter waiting times and longer travel times.
    • The bluezone is also dynamic. It checks remaining player numbers before deciding the next circle, adjusting the waiting time and travel time accordingly (this doesn’t affect circle size).
  • Spawn Balance
    • The item spawn rules have been customized on Sanhok to get you equipped for battle faster.
      • ARs, SMGs, and DMRs are spawned more often. The total item spawn rate has been increased 5% compared to that found in the fourth round of Sanhok testing.
      • 8x scopes and 15x scopes don’t spawn on Sanhok. However, they may still be obtained from care packages.

PUBG is now available on PC and Xbox One, and the Sanhok map (the third map for the game) will be dropping on June 22.
