PUBG Desert Map Gameplay Reveal Coming Next Week, Here's When

It's almost time.


The first gameplay for PUBG's new desert map will be shown during The Game Awards on the evening of Thursday, December 7, organiser Geoff Keighley has revealed.

It will be a live gameplay demonstration, Keighley said on Twitter. It's a pretty big get for The Game Awards, as PUBG is one of the biggest games on the planet, and seeing the new map in action for the first time is a big deal for fans of the game.

We have seen numerous images of PUBG's desert map, but this will be the first gameplay reveal. Compared to the current map, the desert location looks desolate, open, and more flat, filled with ruins and low-lying buildings. Take a look in the gallery above.

There's still no word on when the new map will arrive, but it'll likely be after PUBG officially launches on PC in late December. PUBG is also slated to be released on Xbox One in Early Access on December 12.

The Game Awards are expected to bring a number of announcements and other reveals. Additionally, we'll learn which game wins Game of the Year and more. You can see a list of nominees for Game of the Year and all the other categories here.
