PUBG Desert Map to Be Released to Xbox One Players in May

PUBG desert map Miramar will be coming to Xbox One players sometime in May as a new map codenamed "Savage" begins testing.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds development team tweeted yesterday that the Miramar desert map will become available to Xbox One Players in May. The Miramar map has been available to PUBG PC players for a short while, but for Xbox One players, only the original map, called Erangel, is currently available to play. Though there is no definitive release date for the Miramar update, though the team has said that more information will be released soon.

The Miramar desert map features significant changes from its Erangel counterpart. First and foremost would be the fact that it is a desert environment with significantly less vegetation and buildings, meaning cover is more sparse. The map includes a minibus, pickup truck and jet skis as new vehicles.

Additionally, PUBG developers are currently hard at work on a third map codenamed “Savage,” which hit test servers earlier this week. While details are still somewhat sparse, we know the arena is a quarter of the size of its two current counterparts and focuses on encouraging more aggressive play. Early players of the new map say that it feels significantly more like Fortnite than the other two.

In other PUBG news, the game’s new team deathmatch-style War Mode will be available to all players in the coming future, so fans of the game can look forward to a lot of new content in the coming months.

PUBG was released on December 20, 2017 for PC and Xbox One, and then released on mobile earlier this year. You can check out our review of the game here or grab the battle royale game on PC or Xbox One via Amazon.
