PUBG's Third Map Launches on PC This Friday

Sanhok has been put through its paces and it's ready for prime time.

PUBG Corp announced today that the third map for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will be launching on June 22, 2018 with Patch #15. The smaller, tropical-theme map was previously code-named Savage, but has a final name of Sanhok. The map is 4km x 4km, coming in at one-fourth the size of the existing maps, Erangel and Miramar.

Sanhok will see the addition of a brand-new weapon, the QBZ95. This is an assault rifle that replaces the SCAR-L in the weapon spawn pool for Sanhok. PUBG Corp has also removed the map option, splitting the choice into two playlists. The first playlist includes Erangel and Miramar, while the second includes only Sanhok. Players can select both playlists to get dropped into either map, but if you just want to play Erangel or Miramar, you're currently stuck.

Sanhok's addition is the primary focus of the patch, though the patch notes highlight a number of other changes to the game. There's new signage distributed out among the levels promoting the upcoming PUBG Global Invitational, which will take place on July 25-29 in the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin, Germany. The user interface has been updated in several places and the patch contains a number of bug fixes.

Sanhok is expected to release this Summer on Xbox One, according to a trailer shown at E3 2018.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
