We have known for some time that the battlefields of PlayerUnknown will get a new map of the desert, but until now, the editor Bluehole had not shared many details about it, apart from provoking some screenshots of the work in progress of the environment . That has now changed, since the publisher has officially revealed the map and when the players will have the opportunity to play it.
Known as Miramar, the new stadium is very far from the current map of PUBG, the exuberant Erangel. It encompasses industrial areas, beaches, arid and desert lands, and more, which according to developers will dramatically change the way players approach the game of survival. "The unique terrain and dense urban areas of Miramar will create a new Battle Royale experience where old strategies may stop working and new tactics are required," the development team wrote in a post on the Steam forums.
At the top of the harsh landscape, Miramar hosts at least eight major cities, each of them presenting different types of buildings and constructions that will affect its strategy. This is how the development team describes each location:
- The largest city in the region, Los Leones has extensive stores, a skyline full of new buildings and a glorious golden center . Players must secure high points of observation by exploring the numerous construction sites, and looting the equipment in the cavernous abandoned commercial buildings.
- El Pozo is a city known for its large industrial and entertainment districts. Players can test themselves against all participants in the Arena Fighter, test their motorcycling skills in the death bowl or hunt in the ruins of the textile factories long dead.
- Monte Nuevo is the image of a besieged city The ramshackle walls built to protect its residents now allow players ample coverage to explore the well-stocked complex.
Valle del Mar
- Valle del Mar is a picturesque oceanic city divided in two by the De Toro bridge. West of the bridge is a picturesque school, and to the east, a beautiful church. The key to maintaining this city is the control of bridges, since it is the only direct route between the continent and the island.
- The shipping and transport capitol of Miramar, the most outstanding characteristic of La Cobrería is its huge Rail Yard. Here, the players will hunt and be hunted among the half-buried cargo of a long-dead industry. Careful players must loot the schools and campuses that dot this town before attempting to hold the playground.
- San Martín is located just west of Hacienda Del Patrón. The checkpoints and the barriers have transformed this small city once quiet into a war zone. Both sides of the city have viewpoints, so the most careful players should explore before reaching the city.
- Once a tourist destination with the largest casino in the region, Sin continues to thrill players to this day with its combination of high-value loot and dangerous lines of sight. Aggressive players will immediately loot the Arena and the Casino, but smart players should take a look at the 4-story hotels that separate them.
- Chumacera is the shell of the once thriving Miramar textile industry. The long abandoned factories overlook a main highway lined with residential and commercial buildings. Verticality in both buildings and terrain makes this city an exciting place to plunder: high risk, great opportunity!
Miramar will also have a new vehicle, a retro-looking truck that will be exclusive to the map. Players can also find a new weapon, the Win94, which will also appear exclusively in Miramar as a worldwide spawn.
Players will have the opportunity to compete in Miramar during the "final test round" before version 1.0 of PUBG. . It is scheduled to be launched before the end of December, so you should be able to try out the new advance map sometime this month. PUBG will also launch early access on Xbox One through the Xbox Game Preview program next week, December 12.
