The official Twitter account for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds announced a brand new vehicle that will be added to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

According to the developers, the 1980s-inspired pickup truck will be available exclusively to the game’s forthcoming Desert map. The new map features numerous multi-story buildings. Some appear to look like they are still in construction while others seem torn down, including a shopping plaza filled with store fronts, as well as a disintegrated central street. Additionally, the upcoming desert map will be shown off at The Game Awards, which is airing this coming Thursday night.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is an online battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corp., a subsidiary of Bluehole Studios, with Tencent holding publishing rights for the Chinese version. On top of that, Tencent is also working on bringing the game to mobile devices.

Currently, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available as an Early Access title on Steam. However, a full release is anticipated later this year. An Xbox One version is coming on December 12 via Microsoft’s Xbox Game Preview Program.
