Today, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds‘ creative director “PLAYERUNKNOWN” released several work-in-progress screenshots of the new desert map coming to the game.

These new images focus on the map’s landscape; this includes numerous multi-story buildings — some appear to look like they are still in construction while others look torn down, a shopping plaza filled with shops, as well as a disintegrated central street right beside it. On top of that, the new screenshots also show off an open desert area, complete with a run-down single-story house.

Originally released on March 23 of this year as an Early Access title, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is an online battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corp., a subsidiary of Bluehole Studios.

The game is anticipated to exit Early Access sometime later this year for PC while an Xbox One version will be available on December 12 through Microsoft’s Xbox Game Preview program. Despite the developer Bluehole Studios only anticipating the title to ship just 200,000 to 300,000 units, it substantially surpassed those numbers over the course of this year and is on the verge of passing 2 million concurrent players.

You can check out the new screenshots below this article; for more information on the game, check out some additional screenshots showing off the game’s fog mechanics.
