PUBG Testing "Savage" Island Map Again Tonight, Teases Three New Areas

Load up the experimental map again tonight.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will be testing its smaller, 4x4 Island map again tonight. The map, Codenamed: Savage, will be a little different, little more evolved tonight with PlayerUnknown revealing three new locations on the island.

Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene posted three images on Twitter today in anticipation of the new Codename Savage test run. Each image showed off a different location on the island map. The locations shown include what looks to be a training obstacle course, a ship dock, and a kind of shallow river area with raised boulders.

Codename Savage is PUBG's iteration on a faster battle royale experience. The map size lends itself to a much faster play style, and as we've written previously, the new map fixes PUBG's mid-game problem.

Some other improvements made for the new test includes real-time dynamic weather, and a less shiner ground after the rain. Adjustments have also been made to the map's red zones and blue circle.

The map has been favorably received by Twitch streamers during the first test. However, the map is still very much in development as seen by the fact that the map still lacks assets and textures during the first test. Greene and the PUBG. Corp team appears to be taking player feedback seriousl. Something he said was a priority when we spoke to Greene at GDC this year.

If you have a beta key from the previous test you should be able to join tonight's Savage test again through the experimental server. Tests are scheduled to begin tonight April 16 at 6pm PT/9pm ET. The tests will end on April 18 at 6pm PT/9pm ET. For more on the battle royale game check out our PUBG Savage Map guide for the latest tips and tricks.
