As you'd expect with a PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds map, anticipation is high for the release of Codename: Savage. A number of people have been allowed into the first beta test, which is running right now for PUBG on PC. Whether you didn't get access or just can't play, you can see some action from the map above.
Savage is PUBG's third map to date. It sports a more tropical setting than the existing locations, but more notably, it's much smaller--it measures in at 4 km x 4 km, one quarter of the 8 km x 8 km size of the existing maps. As such, you can expect a fairly different pace of gameplay. Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene previously stated it "should give you all a much more intense and faster paced Battle Royale experience."
This current PUBG map test runs from now until April 5 at 4 AM PT / 7 AM ET / 12 PM BST. It won't be the last such test before it officially launches, but we don't know what availability will be like in the future. You'll need a code to access this current test; you can read more about how to get into the Savage beta here.
For those who don't have access, there is still fairly new PUBG content to check out. PUBG Corp. recently released a new update that added a weapon skin system, allowing players to customize the look of their weapons with cosmetics obtained through new crates. Additionally, the developer is giving away a free weapon skin to PC players for a limited time to celebrate the one-year anniversary of PUBG's early access release.
