We've just received our first detailed glimpse of PUBG's newest map. The little 4x4 darling was shown off by PUBG Creative Director Brendan Greene at the end of the "From Mod Creator to Creative Director of PUBG" panel at GDC 2018.
The early visuals of the map, which is still nameless, show a work-in-progress. It's a small arena compared to PUBG's last map release, Miramar. That's by design: Greene said he wants this map to be "more intense." Less land means fewer hiding spaces and more chances to meet foes. Sure enough, images of the new map show off some low-to-the-ground structures that will undoubtedly wind up as coveted cover for players. There's also plenty of water and greenery.
The new map was last mentioned as part of PUBG's roadmap for 2018. It won't be the last map we'll see, either. PUBG Corp has promised more substantial and frequent updates in its effort to take back its battle royale crown from Fortnite.
