Multiplayer survival shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) will be out of Steam Early Access on December 20. It’s full release is called 1.0.
In addition to this, developer PUBG Corp is adding Miramar. It’s a desert map that was revealed for the first time at The Game Awards 2017.
Miramar is available on PUBG public test servers at 12am PT (1:30pm IST) today. It isn't as big as Erandel — PUBG’s original map, appearing a tad smaller and featuring a mix of rural and urban landscapes.
With PUBG hitting the Xbox One next week, it will be interesting to see how different the game is on the Xbox One versus the PC version. Hopefully it holds a better frame rate? We’ll know soon enough.
In our PUBG review we noted that despite the PC version’s many technical problems, there is some fun to be had. The gunplay is satisfying when aiming works as it should, and the ever shrinking map provides an interesting challenge as it results in more frequent, chaotic encounters. But in between landing a headshot and sprinting to the nearest safe zone, are long moments of silence, spent rummaging through houses and buildings in search of equipment — if you haven’t been punched to death by another player in the first few minutes.
