PUBG Corp. Shares New Screenshots for the New Desert Map
The new expansive desert-themed multiplayer map for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) continues to take shape and may be on the verge of finally releasing for the masses.
Earlier today, creator Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene shared new screenshots to highlight four never-before-seen areas from the upcoming harsh and unforgivable terrain. These are tagged as work-in-progress and are subject to change before arrival.

The yet-to-be-named map was originally teased back in July and received an aerial perspective in August. Similar to previous reveals, the new screenshots bring our attention to the large-scale city with a number of buildings comprised of multiple floors. The developer has promised players that there will be no shortage of loot and hiding spots.
For those unaware, this is one of two multiplayer maps that are currently in development for the game. It is supposed to release with the PUBG 1.0 update for PC, which has already been delayed due to technical issues.
The developer has plans to also remake the current map to give it “that identity of this kind of Russian or Crimean island” sometime next year once it is done with the two current maps in the pipelines.
PUBG is scheduled to release for Xbox One on December 12 through the Game Preview program. The popular battle royale game is also slated to escape early access and officially release on PC around the same time frame.
