After months of teases and screenshots, the curtain has lastly been pulled again on Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds’ desert map, which shall be becoming a member of the island when Plunkbat leaves early entry. It shall be within the 1.0 test servers earlier than that, nevertheless. It’s received a reputation now, too! I imply, we’re all going to maintain calling it the desert map, in all probability, however its correct title is Miramar, which suggests “sea-view”. Lovely!
PUBG Corp continues to be holding again a wee bit — in spite of everything, discovering the ins and outs of the maps for your self makes exploring them arguably extra rewarding — however we’ve now received extra screenshots to gawk at and a few particulars concerning the settlements and landmarks. You can check out the descriptions of all the revealed landmarks here, however I’ve additionally picked out just a few highlights under. For starters, right here’s the map with its ultimate names now in place – click on to make it greater:
Los Leones is Miramar’s largest metropolis and sports activities a mixture of development websites that dominate the skyline, a flashy metropolis centre and many locations to gap up and do a spot of sniping. I normally keep out of cities, however I’ve been trying to up my sniping recreation, and Los Leones appears like simply the place to do it.
Far to the north west of Los Leones lies El Pozo, which seems just like the second-largest settlement on the map. It was once common due to its industrial and leisure districts, and I suppose it may very well be once more, what with gamers capable of duke it out within the luchador enviornment or journey round on their motorbikes within the demise bowl. A little bit of silliness on this in any other case fairly straight-faced recreation may be very welcome.
Valle del Mar is located within the south east and connects the mainland to the small island under it. The city straddles the river, with a bridge connecting the north and south, and a number of roads resulting in it. Clearly that is going to be ambush central. I’ve been that means to make the most of bridges extra, as an alternative of holding away from them, so I’ll undoubtedly be heading down there the primary probability I get.
There are casinos, factories, rail yards and mountains, too, and simply so many locations that seem like the proper spot to be killed. I’m wanting ahead to many, many deaths as I attempt to get the lay of the land. PUBG Corp warns that outdated methods won’t work in Miramar, however the joke’s on them: I don’t have any methods.
Miramar isn’t fairly prepared but, however we’ll lastly be capable of discover the desert when it’s added to the 1.zero check servers. Given the upcoming launch, that ought to be very quickly. In the meantime, absorb the sights with these new screenshots.
